Mike Lantry, 1972
1. Is that pumpkin wearing blackface?
2. Did that guy make the jersey by hand?
Sometimes, the things you do say a lot about you. And sometimes, the things you do say everything about you.
Robinson being attacked by "Thing" from the Adams Family?
i think that is supposed to be tom gholstons hand spinning his head around...
You ethier get it or you don't.
Pshhh packaging engineers. I built cooler things in my sandbox
If they were more creative and for only a modest increase in production budget, they could have added a second act using the same model, giving it a Lewan jersey, and putting on another plastic hand to simulate an arm bar.
Getting that head to spin is the greatest engineering triumph to come out of East Lansing in the past century.
Supporting evidence is always helpful.
Whew! For a second there, I thought there was a stealth fighter flying out of my computer screen to attack me. Scared the shit out of me.
You just know that the next time MSU comes to Northrop Grumman and Ford for sponsorship, it'll either be a "hell noze" or "Okay, but please don't put our logos in such a conspicuous place. In fact, no need to tell anyone we gave you any support."
I get it. You're so funny, Tom.
That's something my little brother would do. Use a Holiday as an excuse to remind me he beat me in something. Wonder what he will do after Michigan wins this weekend? Someone should find that guys house.
What the F David Blaine.
Stay classy MSU.
You lied to me, you told me it was classy.
HE FORGOT TO PUT THE "/s" AT THE END.
Well, this certainly takes the novelty away from my idea of carving a pumpkin depicting Tommy getting the wind knocked out of him. Darn.
I'm at home for fall break and the Internet here is quite slow...so when I first opened the thread I saw the OP and nothing where the embedded video is
I am beginning to think that this is what would have resulted if Ed Wood had been around long enough to produce a Spartan hype film. Between the clamp and wiring being clearly visible in the shot, the amateurish pumpkin and the motor noise being audible, I have to think this one gets drilled over at Rotten Tomatoes. The symbolism takes a back seat to a torrent of mediocrity, and the pinkie ring (an undisguised Ty Rap) on the disembodied hand is very awkward, but yet fitting somehow.
Are you kidding? This is clearly a Spielburg production... to be released under the name Alan Smithee.
Hey, if you had to make a movie in EL working with Spartans, you'd win your case that your staff was incompetent and robbed you of directorial control, too.
I would usually agree that there is no such thing as a "classy Spartan" anything, but I will give them a bit of credit here: this is as "classy" as it ever gets in EL.
i kept expecting it to explode... but i guess you don't just blow up something in which so much is invested. i mean, that toy helmet has got to be worth at least a couple coors lights.
Looks like MSU has their own Dexter
Seems like an irresponsible way to spend your welfare check.
That's Bridge Card to you...
Just think, a couch was able to live for an extra couple of weeks due to the fact that a Spartan was not able to concentrate on his normal proclivities. So please let's think of the couches and be thankful!
I'm a little creeped out that someone spent the time to make all of that. I'm even more creeped out that he spent even more time to make a video of it. That being said, when I finally realized what it was, I'm not gonna lie, I chuckled. We'll kick their asses Saturday, and for "Tom's" sake, I hope Hoke didn't tell Lewan that Gholston is a donkey.
ummm...what the heck was that?
Just when I thought I had too much time on my hands...
(I apologize for those who believe this joke is in poor taste, I'm quite bored at work right now...)
