I never imagined there could be anything worse then Freakbass for ND but it is here at the 1:09 mark...

absolutely, unbelievable, leprachaun gathered, end of the rainbow gold.
Edit: I did not realize that this is airing today at 4pm ET. http://www.locatetv.com/listings/nbc
I am sure our ND friends would be disappointed to miss this opportunity. I recommend posting the vid. on their "wall" with a reminder to tune at 4pm.
The YouTube post was just a delicious applesaucy taste of what is to come on national television later today? (we haven't even touched on the fact that this is on youtube due to the tremendous marketing power of Musselman brand spple sauce.)
They are excited about this broadcast...they have no idea.
which makes this such an epic fail. Love the look on the band members' faces, pure dread. That is one performance they will never forget.
How sickened does the band look?
That's a great post
you can't be upvoted further....
We always compain about the inability to neg-bang but jesus what about the loss of the poss-bang too? That is the funniest post i have read in a LONG time and worth sixty jamillion upvotes!
Edit: It's now almost three hours since I first watched the video and then saw the post with Brian Kelly's angry face accompanied by the words "Land the fucking triple lutz" and each and every time i see/read it I start laughing out loud. Hell I started laughing again just writing it. My wife thinks i'm losing my mind cause I keep laughing at the same thing over and over again.
If there is such a thing I hereby cast my vote for MGoBlog Hall of Fame.
I will forever associate Brian Kelly with figure skating. Thank you.
Glare of grim disgust at 1:34.
That's exactly what I was noticing... they look like their souls are being sucked out.
I'm curious who the skaters in the ND uniforms were... they didn't look polished enough to be real figure skaters, but they didn't look nearly bulked up enough to be players... were they members of ND's band?
The Asian-American drummer has the same expression as Bruce Lee did just before he said, ""You have dishonored my family and a Shaolin Temple. Now you must die."
I think he was wearing the same pair of skates two years ago when Omameh pushed him 20 yards down the field on Denard's 87-yard TD run.
BOOM YAKETY SAX'D.
My God. This even syncs up with the video.
I linked to this in my sig I liked it so much.
+11ty million to Boyz n da Pahokee.
this. is amazing.
this tremendously embarassing piece of footage?
Great piece of schadenfruede on the youtube comment page begging for someone to "Destroy all footage of this before our football team is mocked into obscurity."
See what Jimmy can do when he has time to throw!!!?!??
My God. First comment on youtube "Destroy all footage of this before our football team is mocked into obscurity."
Edit: Beat to the punch
I hope to never see anything like that again
I've seen enough. We can shut down the Internet now. It can't get much better than that.
wow. it is too bad that written language is not advanced enough to express the humiliation and mockery that ND will have to enduer because of youtube. someone needs to send this to Mike and Mike and the Dan Patrick Show.
BAHAHHAH this is awesome.
They've never looked better.
I'm not a religious person, but, if there is a God, thank you for this precious gift which you have bestowed upon us.
is proven to be a fact thanks to brian boitano.
i wonder when trey parker and matt stone will compose an updated brian boitano song for the little tikes of southpark.
I wasn't a religious person before I saw this video, but now it's clear God has a plan.
...for when ND puts seven up front from now on, the line will appear as follows:
At last, we've been told what Brian Boitano would do if he were here right now...
Lets make life on earth just that much better. I cry beautiful tears of joy at what I behold.
Next time we're about to have a collective panic attack about extra stripes on our road uniforms or Journey being played in the stadium, let us remember this video. It could always be much, much worse.
It is a bit depressing to think that for some of those band folk, that was their 15 minutes.
Worse: ND on ice
Worst: FreekBass, although ND on Ice isnt far behind.
I wonder if ND just plans everything they do to give people an opportunity to mock them. Hiring Brian Kelly, ice skating, terrible songs, hiring Brian Kelly, Jimmy Clausen, not suspending Michael Floyd, hiring Charlie Weis, and hiring Brian Kelly. Did I mention Brian Kelly?
is a great coach and a good person believe it or not..My buddy won two national Titles at GV playing for him ..
....and I will now need to dump serious Resolve on the carpet by my desk. ROFL.
If only they had played with such grace and elegance all year, right? Oh, ND, what could have been...
I must say though, I can't wait for next year when ND receivers are doing triple axels to avoid tackles.
show this video to top recruits thinking of going there, they may reconsider ...God,how horrible ..I couldn't even watch it all...lol
I just hope Brandon doesn't see this... might get ideas.
i'm not sure what all the excitement is about. the skaters looked pretty good and gave nd a decided schematic advantage if they play on an icy field.
I don't see Brandon going down this road. We should count our blessings for the AD he is, and quit complaining. Among other things,
Regarding the skating, the "performance" was on Nov. 20 in South Bend, explaining the Fighting Irish Band inclusion. They had a game the day before (win vs. BC.)
I hope that the MMB never consents to doing something like this in the Detroit area. Let MSU stake out that territory, it would gladly be ceded to them.
Lastly, I'd gladly chip in to pay for the wager which would get photobomber Brian Cook to agree to function alongside the front man for Pop Evil, singing "In The Big House." The Photoshop of that was priceless. A jiib jab style video of Pop Evil singing the song with the Brian Cook photobomber photoshopped in would be awesome.
I'll probably sound like a dick for saying this but . . .
is still bullshit.
it IS a slippery slope, and is the AD's version of playing not to lose.
Dave Brandon is a successful businessman, a charismatic leader, & obviously loves Michigan. He's also a an extreme egotist, and a meddling corporate whore.
I'll stop complaining when I see proof that Dave Brandon knows the difference between the Michigan® brand and his own.
around 2 years. The problem is, he has done all of what you said in this short period of time giving the impression that he is just getting started.
Your concerns are well founded.
I'll take one copy of the Collector's Edition, please, with BluRay, DVD, and downloadable Ultraviolet version directly to my digital viewer of choice. With both theatrical release and director's cut.
Special commentary by Freakbass.
Also deleted scenes with hilarious outtakes. Though it is admittedly hard to tell the difference between the outtakes and the actual film.
If it was a REAL Notre Dame tribute, there would have been an phantom pass-interference flag on that pass.
I wasn't sure what to expect - it certainly wasn't football players on skates! I almost spewed coffee all over my laptop.
Kelly saw Lewan and Robinson practicing their lift and got right to work on a routine.
Let us hope they don't start this nonsense in the stadium, the damage to the turf will be tremendous!
You guys are just jealous.
in the HD scoreboards the next time we play them at home.
...to the melodious strains of Emile Waldteufel's "Les Patineurs".
NOTE TO ALL: Not sure who went to this site, but they've been warned now -
Predicting schadenfreude gold (and we didn't even need to play football) in 5...4...3...2...
QUESTION TO BOARD: Separate reaction thread? I might watch this special and then check the ND blogs to find gems.
This might be the single most important piece of video since the Zupruder tapes surfaced. If this isn't the funniest thing ever captured on film then I truly don't know what is (especially when coupled with "Land the Fucking Triple Lutz" post with Kelly's mad face.
If we can single-handidly get Craig James and his killing of the five hookers to #2 on the Google search engine pre-fill then I think we OWE it the rest of the world to make sure this piece of cinematic genius gets known beyond the board. I, for one, will henceforth only speak of ND from this point forward as the "Notre Dame Figureskaters".
...to post this on EDSBS? And for LSUfreek to do his magic?
You won't have to do anything; it's as good as done. Something this delicious is money in the bank to those guys.
The bad side of an exclusive network contract.
Can someone with more talent than I PLEASE make an animated GIF out of this.
It's hard to tell what sequence to isolate.
The leprechaun dropping his hat?
The jumping jacks?
The agony of the band?
There's more gold on this clip than on all the ND helmets from the UTL game. Priceless.
Okay, I've posted waay too many times on this thread already.
So, I'm just going to make a top ten comments and walk away. This clip is too much of a Good Thing.
(1) Is it too late for T'eo to change his mind?
(2) Perhaps this is one time wherein minority underrepresentation at ND isn't such a bad thing.
(3) If you're going to call a slow-to-develop play with three pitches in the backfield, you really should consider assigning more players to block.
(4) I can't believe ND gave us crap about DRob's underthrowing with a pass like that.
(5) Maybe the event would have looked better with commemorative uniforms.
(6) #7 (Stephon Tuitt, DE), #17 (Matthew Mulvey, QB), #8 (Kendall Moore, ILB), and #4 (Gary Gray, CB) must be FRICKING PISSED. Unless that was actually them out there. And if it was, maybe not so bad considering three out of the four are defenders.
(7) Conversation topic: Who should be more embarrassed: "Notre Dame Football" or the band, "Chicago" ?
(8) Was this really the wisest use of a year of eligibility for Boitano this late in the season?
(9) Where are the leprechaun pushups? I want to see ice leprechaun pushups!
(10) ND's offense playing in synch with the marching band cadence seems to be helping them with that false-start problem.
I'm sure he'd kick an ass or two! That's what Brian Boitano'd do!
I really wanna see THIS video played everytime Notre Dame takes the field against us, for all eternity..now that will be a "decided schematic advantage"
This video is a Festivus Miracle!
Priceless. ND Football and figure skating, a perfect match.
I think the triple turn on the outroute would fool most backfields. Very innovative.
I have said this before but now it is completely true: Notre Dame stinks on ice.
I can finally die in peace. I have seen it all. Hail2Victors I will upvote you 4 Life.
As Denard would say......
Methinks the Book of Revelation needs amending. Dark times these.
Please someone make sure Brandon is nowhere near the TV this afternoon.
By the way, "RUDY" of ND fame got busted and settled with the feds for a stock fraud scheme that netted him and about a dozen other investors a cool $1million each:
What can be said about this video that has not already been said in this outstanding thread? God must have a great sense of humor.
This video must be preserved for posterity. Recruiting ammunition gold.
For some reason, I find it amusing that it's sponsored by Musselman's Apple Sauce.
...full broadcast of this thing this afternoon. There may be much, much more TV gold here.
I want this video to be played everytime Notre Dame visits Michigan stadium on our gigantic dual HD scoreboards. I truely believe it will add to everyone's gameday experience and enjoyment.
I wonder what DameFan1 thinks of this. Anyone have time to do a parody with one of his videos on this? Oh, that would be delicious.
There is no way they can say "oops" about this one the way they did "We are ND" - it is being promoted by way too many people not under ND's control...
This says the live show was actually almost a month ago. Doesn't make it less hilarious.
....makes it even more hilarious.
....and I will now always remember that formidable front 4, right down to the blades of their skates:
Well.......At least that QB seems to have a stronger arm then Rees.
