Hmmm, the Pretty Posts Sticky doesn't seem to be up to date for embedding YouTube videos (or I'm missing something in the instructions).
Northwestern Fan Makes Great(est) Fan Video
it is easy, friend.
1. Go to Youtube, hit share under the video. Then hit embed and copy the url that it gives you.
2. Go to MGOBLOG, under the comment box there is "switch to plain text editor", click that.
3. Paste the URL embeding code from Youtube
4. Switch back to "rich text editor"
I'm fairly sure that's exactly what I was doing. Oh well, thanks for the help!
Embedding in the OP is a bit wonky.
For the OP, you have to copy "old embed code" on the YouTube page. There's a checkbox for it.
but when I took a look earlier I didn't see an old embed code option on this video. Also I have no idea if anything embedding related got changed with the server switch or not.
Might have been better if they showed a montage of all the flops. Otherwise, not bad.
lol @ hippie bears
Thanks! I still have no idea what I was doing wrong.
You have to use the "old embed code" to post video in an OP. It's different in comments.
This had me LOL'ing pretty hard. Nice find.
This is wonderful
I have to admit being skeptical before viewing. The term "greatest" invites skepticism.
But that was glorious.
100% Pure Columian Awesome.
This is the Hockey Bear of college football.
Be proud, Northwestern.
This is the best video ever. I was already rooting a little bit for Northwestern, but now I am on the wagon.
That this is a NW fan video makes it all the better. Like an MSU video mis-identifying horse manure for cow manure, or an OSU video featuring clean beer coolers.
I really hope one of these pops up each week they win.
On sippin on purple has been one of the better SB Nation hires in a long time.
The Northwestern Jerseys look pretty good, wasn't sure how they would turn out.
That was pretty cool!
Loved the FG kick - "it's good....very good....best ever"
Was that a parrot at 1:10?? Fantastic. Never been prouder to call NU my "other alma mater."
of my NU degrees. Hope they keep winning for a while so we get more of these.
I hope these are made for losses as well. NU loses by 20? Nuh-uh, the video says they won by 30. Amazballs.
They seem a little too excited about a victory over a team that went 3-9 last season.
"Glopknar" or however you spell, iis the best.
its not like Top Gun is my favorite movie or anything...
THAT WAS FREAKING AMAZING
Hahaha this really is the greatest.
Edit: me haz no ideyuh why all the replys to my coment talking about Miss Pelled werds. Fairly certain all I said was 'this really is the greatest'
I mean there were other misspelled words too. I can't imagine a person who could miss all of those yet have the ability to make this video.
Drunken video making is the new drunk dialing.
I love this!
I would pay a lot of money to comission that poorly understood genious to make one of those for michigan. Kickstarter anyone?
Pretty awesome, though it kind of highlighted how crappy NW played that they got to defensive TDs and still barely beat Cal.
Also, any time you have a digitized parrot dancing in the middle of a football game, you've got my money.
If he can find another soundtrack to do that for their next win I will be impressed. Cant just do it to Top Gun every week. Or can he.....
Not quite as epic but he has 3 other videos for NW. Here are two - the captions are worth it along with the skrillex type remixes.
...clench ur bowuls
"Traevon squat status: EARNED."
I usually hate these things but I LOL'd. My wife thinks I'm stupid, as usual.
SO. MUCH. WIN.
Was fucking awesome. Also enjoyed the goose :( subtitle by the QB getting his shit rocked
He needs to leave the written commentary on screen a little longer. I missed the "4 points" the first time through.
I always wondered what happened to JeffK from somethingawful, he apparently went to Northwestern and is making highlight vids. Well done.
Is winning by two TDs, while allowing 30 points, considered an effortless blowout now?
I suppose you didn't find the video funny
I sense sarcasm sometimes goes over your head. ;) I imagine if NW loses 42-17 sometimes in the future he'd flash "CLOS LOSS" and "JEST MISSEDDD THE WIN."
God damn amazing. Hats off to you sir.
That whomever made this has never taken a class at Northwestern or possibly has not graduated from high school. Those grammatical errors were killing me. Epic Vid though, Delany on piano killed me and it just got better from there.
B1G, B1G, B1G !!!
