Brilliant video of one of the greatest places in the country to watch a football game, but then again – I’m biased. Go Ducks!
As you can tell by many of my posts on this blog, I am a big sports fan and specifically a HUGE Oregon Ducks Football fan. My alma mater has been tearing it up on the grid iron this year – leading the nation in scoring offense and tops in scoring defense as well. Our team has become famous as much for it’s available uniform combinations (300+ at last count) as it has for it’s ability to score on you in a heartbeat (just ask Arizona State how devastating that offense is).
This week, they’re in the news again – not just for hosting College Game Day at Autzen stadium, but for the second installation of Supwitchugirl’s viral video collection. Last year, during the Duck’s march to the Rose Bowl they released “I Smell Roses“, which quickly caught fire amongst Duck fans and spread nationally through viral pass along (topping more than 860k views on YouTube). There was some controversy with their usage of the Oregon Duck mascot in the video, but that paled in comparison to the popularity of the spot.
How do you top that? Fast forward to 2010 and on the eve of the biggest game (so far) of the year for our beloved Ducks, Supwitchugirl released their second installment entitled: Return of the Quack. Check it out below… 3 days later, it’s achieved more than 340k views and has been profiled on the Dan Patrick Show. I’d say they know a little something about making a viral video.
ESPN has a long list of ‘This is SportsCenter’ commercials – some are better than others, all are pretty funny…. In light of tonight’s Civil War (for the 2009 RoseBowl berth) between my Alma Mater (Oregon) and our rival (Oregon State) I’m posting my favorite ‘This is SportsCenter’ – Duck Style!
