"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
This diary is fairly straightforward: Denard's 2011 Heisman Video
I've mashed up Denard's quest for the trophy with the trailers from the most recent Star Trek movie (which I loved, and the trailers were quite good). If you're interested in seeing the original source material, you can see the Trailers by clicking the following: Trailer #2Trailer #3
Without further delay, onto the video:
Now, a few quick points of interest, as people had similar questions/points last time:
The video is a mash of the first 1+ of Trailer #2, and the last 1:50+ of Trailer #3.
No particular reason for the HS Denard + Michigan Denard highlight mix at the beginning, I just liked how similar many of the plays were.
I tried to avoid redundancy with the highlights from the Hype Video, but unfortunately Denard was so much of that video, overlap couldn't be helped. I tried to find some different angled shots though.
The repetition of the ESPN clips with the jersey and shoes, yeah, I know, but it just worked so well, and it's rare to have such good footage to mash-up.
If you don't like Star Trek, or like Trek but hate the new movie ... tough
Every time I hear "enlist in Starfleet" with the trophy ... I get chills
That's Erin Andrews speaking at the end, in case you were curious
The Robot? Original trailers were from "Bad Robot" productions. Plus, it's the robot.
Quick shoutout to my boy mgouser "Chicago Maize and Blue" for his help/feedback.
Thanks for watching and commenting, per usual it's incredibly appreciated. Believe it or not I do take your comments and feedback into account going forward, and I'm open to any suggestions you have for future video ideas. I can put pretty much anything together provided there's video of it on YouTube. Thanks again.
With all the trying times we've dealt with as Michigan football fans over the last few years, I hope everyone appreciates what a truely awesome talent we have right now. This video was awesome! I feel fortunate to get to watch this young man play for The University of Michigan for the next 2 seasons.
Not sure if you remember the Rilo Kiley "better sons and daughters" hype video from a couple of years ago, the song was perfect. It would be cool to see an updated version of that. Keep up the great work.
There was a version done last year as well. I can't remember the name of the poster, but he said he would get another one going for this year, as well as a hype video with a new song. Personally, I can't imagine a better hype video than those Rilo Kiley ones, and I think given the lyrics and theme of the song the timing this summer couldn't be better. I liked the OP's video a lot, so don't take this the wrong way, but the Rilo Kiley ones give me the chills each time I watch them (which is fairly often).
... ones were excellent. I loved those videos, both the original and the one shortsgoblue did last year. I don't have any intentions on doing a Rilo Kiley version right now, b/c as maineandblue said, shorts mentioned he was working one another version for this season and I didn't want to step on anyone's toes. When I did the hype video I posted last week w/ the Armageddon speech, I wanted to break the mold a bit and do my own version of the hype video, but if there's no Rilo version posted by the weekend before the Western game, I may put some work into it that week and see what I come up with.
