If there is one thing Kentucky and Louisville fans like to do, it is make rap videos about their teams. If UK/UL rap videos were mustache hairs, we would be Alan Cutler. So when we make fun of our Card brethren, we have to keep in mind that for every “L1C4” gem, we have a “Lazy Tuesday.” With that said, I give you the Cards’ latest, someone named B_Simm (whose hat is perpetually askew) rapping about how we do not want these Cards:
I freely admit that I am not the perfect person to judge these things, but alas, I am forced into it. And I must admit, I don’t think this is terrible. The chorus is catchy, even if doesn’t make the most sense logically (do I not want these Cards because they aren’t worth having or because I am scared of them? The latter is certainly not true, as UCONN showed us that these Cards have become rather inviting lately…and I might actually want to have these Cards, if for no other reason, the entertainment of watching them in their natural habitats). The guy rapping seems rather talented and has the requisite number of hype men behind him bouncing up and down. But the real stars of the show are the random white people swaying awkwardly in the background. Deep from the mean streets of Anchorage and Prospect, these youngsters are throwing up the “L”s, while having a jolly time and hoping that none of the performers realize that they and their parents hosted a fundraiser for Romney. It is quite amusing, especially when you focus in on one in particular (I like the really short guy with the sunglasses right behind the rappers who looks to be so happy that he might bust out of his new penny loafers…even Brian Long appreciates his lack of rhythm).
Still, I give B-Simm and the rest of the “You Dont Want these Cards” crew credit. Among the various Kentucky rap attempts, this is among the better efforts. And after the overall dumpster fire of a day they had yesterday, UL fans do need something to cheer them up.
