I don't have much money, but I would pay for one last Better Son/Daughter video. The old ones were the best hype videos ever (imho), and the theme/lyrics are even more relevant now than ever before. It's just not the same watching it with old clips of Tate and Threet/Sheridan (though it still gives me the chills each time).

I was just about to make a new thread for my hype video (just got to 100 comments), and then you go and post this great video. How am I supposed to post mine now without looking like a total derp!?

I will post it. Ill wait till the morning though. I figure ill leave some space in between the two posts so people dont think they have already seen that video or something. Or for the suspense, maybe that.

It is funny though, our videos are somewhat similar. A lot of the same clips thrown around.

I loved your video. Quick question, in your video from last year, where was that music from? I'm talking about the first son, not Electric Light Orchestra. The song that was playing behind "the team" speech from last year's hype video was great.

I'm gonna be honest; I usually don't watch the hype videos since they're the same clips from the every offensive snap videos over and over but this one was goooooooood.  Excellent work sir.

PS:  Thanks for including the Shaw run in there from last year's OSU game to give us a primer of what the guy has potential to do.

When I first saw how long the vid was, I thought it might be a little long. When it was finished I wanted more... Nice use of "The Team" speech. Gotta love Schem.  I also really liked how you placed some of the vid in the architecture of the Big House. Just a few days 'till we're sitting there watching this team start another season. Go Blue!!!

I may as well quit work for the next few weeks until we get back from "under the lights".  Best hype video yet.  Keep up the great work.  The talent on this board is what makes it so great and stand out from all others.  Thank you!

Superb, I especially liked the beginning.  I know this board doesn't have stickies but I'd love to see a thread, or maybe a diary, with all of this year's hype videos embedded.  Perhaps someone more technically proficient can help us out.

i've watched countless michigan hype videos. a lot of good, some bad but this was by far and away the best one thats ever been created. it has high quality footage, seamless blending of the past and present and represents every part of michigan football that is great. not trying to get hyperbolic but it's more of a work of art than a hype video. really outstanding work, you should be very proud of yourself.

It was a great video all the way up until you had the running back from Friday Night Lights sign off Bo's speech. Great work with the audio and visual effects, definitely the most professional video put out this off season.

Thanks for the new pre-game ritual! I love Better Son/Better Daughter, but it is time for something new to go along with the new era.  

EDIT: Does anyone know if there are any reasons we could not show this at the area alumni bar on game days?

Showing the action through the arches and reflected in the windows at the Big House, along with much of Bo's "The Team" speech, set this one apart from most others I've seen. 

As someone else mentioned, the Shaw play vs. tSIO was a great choice.  Hope he stays healthy b/c he could be special.
