Let me just start off by saying that I can absolutely empathize with these high school, hoping-to-one-day be bros. When I was in high school, recording a hype video for my school would’ve been something that my buddies and I did without hesitation—had YouTube actually been around back then.
As someone who used to paint his fucking chest with an ‘H’ to help spell out “Hudson”—the name of my school—us superfans thought it was our fucking duty to run the town.
After watching how this thing turned out, though, boy am I glad no one suggested it back then.
From the choice of songs, “Run This Town”—which is six years old—to walking around in the woods with the school’s mascot in their uniforms, the dudes at McCallie School in Tennessee just put out the worst hype video I’ve ever seen.
Don’t worry, young bros, you’ve got plenty of time to learn what works and what doesn’t.
