Very proud day for the father of Arrogant Nation. USC released another promo spot for ticket sales on this day where we can buy single game tickets. Truth told, I am on the verge of starting to break shit over the continued rumor that Lane Kiffin, while admirably arrogant, is trying to defecate on our proud tradition by pulling out black helmets and alternate jerseys, most likely to avenge the loss of a prized recruit to Chip Kelly and the Technicolor Dreamcoats up in Oregon. I can’t emphasize Oregon’s 9-16 record in bowls, 0 national champions or Heismans and severe lack of turning out NFL prospects as plenty of recruiting tools. That and the fact THEY HAVEN’T HAD A BETTER RECRUITING CLASS THAN US IN I DON’T KNOW HOW LONG.
But yeah, Kiff. You’re right. Black helmets will totally help. Or having a field goal kicker. Or sending Seal Team Six in to steal their douchey posterboards with pictures of donuts, Lee Corso, a goat and the Alps that they use to call plays. Just saying.
Wait, what was I saying?
Oh yeah. My main man 2011 Heisman Winner Matt Barkley was in this spot that kind of the film student version of the ESPN campaign they’ve been running since I was a child. One, it’s cool to hear quarterbacks play call and know Pat Haden probably can still get it done. The main reason I like this is because Matt is totally arrogant at the end and asks “who were those old guys”, and that won me over. Not because I think he doesn’t know them. Just because he sold that line like a used Honda at Cerritos. He got hardcore arrogant. It’s called method acting bitches. If you want to be a cowboy in a movie, you go to the ranch and live the life. If you wanna be arrogant, you read this blog, eat caviar and call people by whatever name you feel like, including you family and boss. That’s what I am talking about.
While I enjoyed the ad, I want to suggest we use some of our 2 billion plus dollar endowment to buy a RED camera or something. Video felt a little video like. This is no condemnation of our video department, who are completely arrogant and awesome (I know, we’ve hunted bear together), but rather a suggestion that if we have the money to be considering black helmets (which better be made of kevlar because I demand Arrogant Nation try to destroy them before they hit the field), we have the money to buy my homies in A/V a state of the art RED camera.
