The Air Force at Navy game nearly was a casualty of the government shutdown.
And maybe that also explains what happened to Air Force’s spirit video this weekend in advance of the game.
You know how these things go, you and a few of your friends are really pumped for the big game and you think let’s turn Daft Punk’s "Get Lucky," into an awesome music video called, "Sink Navy." "The whole school will love it!"
Then you and your buddies at Air Force film the video and you’re thinking to yourself, "I’m not sure this is really going that well. We’re just walking around in a dark airport runway and people have no idea what we’re doing. See, it’s night because we’re up all night to beat Navy!"
But you push these doubts out of your mind and tell yourself, "We’ll make it look badass in the editing." And then, yeah, this happens. And it’s just bad. Good luck Air Force, you’re going to need it.
If this video is any indication, Navy’s gonna absolutely destroy Air Force.
By the way, this video was so bad I thought it might be Navy kids trying to sandbag Air Force by submitting fake Air Force spirit videos to OKTC. (These military kids are skilled in covert social media warfare, after all).
Our emailer requested anonymity, but he’s actually an Air Force cadet who wrote as follows, "What do you think will be the bigger blowout, the score to the football game or the quality of this video?"
