UA Students Create Parody Video Inspired by Wild Razorback Game


Plenty of folks were inspired by the Arkansas football team’s improbable win over Ole Miss.

After the Hogs overcame a 4th-and-25 situation on Hunter Henry’s over-the-head lateral to Alex Collins and were ultimately able to defeat the Rebels, more than a few people around the state probably did a little dance in celebration.

Several joined the party on Dickson Street that night, and from the sound of it in my neighborhood, plenty were simply moved to jump up and down and scream in excitement.

Some students from the University of Arkansas, however, decided to channel their inspiration into a parody video they posted to YouTube.

The video, created by members of the Arkansas Cru student group, is a play on a Buffalo Wild Wings ad campaign from a few years ago depicting fans hanging out at the restaurant that aren’t quite ready to go home near the end of a game. In the commercials, the BWW bartenders uncover a secret control panel behind the bar with the power to send the game to overtime at the press of a button.

You’ve probably seen the ads. In one, the button signals a janitor at the stadium, who manipulates the sprinkler system to trip a player on the field and prevent a touchdown. There are a few others.

The local ad splices footage from the original BWW commercial with the game tape, along with some new scenes the students filmed themselves. They also used Chuck Barrett’s call of the game for the audio.

All in all, it’s pretty nicely done. Watch it above.
