Scratch directs traffic in Brad Paisley’s new music video

Screen Shot 2015-09-03 at 4.02.39 PM

Brad Paisley has a bizarre new music video with mascots from around the SEC and other parts of the country, including Oregon, for some reason. Most of the “Country Nation” video was filmed inside Vanderbilt Stadium, but Kentucky’s own Scratch is seen directing traffic midway through.

Scratch reappears near the end when a Paisley mascot lunges for a touchdown. It went in the books as a score but I think Scratch got the goal line stop.

Has the extra point been kicked? Can we throw a challenge flag here?

Anyway, here’s the video…

    Why did they use the “secondary” mascot instead of the actual Wildcat?

      Paisley: “Call UK and see if we can use its mascot in a music video.”

      UK: “Brad Paisley sucks. Send him Scratch.”

      “Brad Paisley has a bizarre new music video”

      I feel like Brad Paisley’s success is much more bizarre.

    My gosh that half-Tennessee/ half-West Virginia jersey should be next to the word atrocity in the dictionary.

    I love Kentucky. I love the University of Kentucky. I love a lot of things.

    But I HATE Scratch. I hate Scratch the same way I hate diarrhea on the day I have a job interview.

    So he’s pretty much perfect for a Brad Paisley video.

      Scratch is so hip and cool, just look at that backward’s hat! He’s definitely not your grandaddy’s University of Kentucky Wildcat. Joking of course, he sucks.

      Let’s see – can’t spell (trailor lmao!!) and lacking punctuation and proper grammar. Typical Tardanese.

      I bet he really thought he was fooling someone. Haaaaa.

      I’m gonna go with 12 yr. old. At least I hope so.

    Remember, Brad Paisley trash talked UK before we played West Virginia last year. This was most likely a ploy used to sell tickets to future shows held in Kentucky. I for one, am not a fan!

    As an ex-Scratch I must address the hate! Scratch is the mascot that is less likely to freak out younger kids. He is the official mascot of the Junior Wildcat Club. The Wildcat is terrifying for kids! Trust me…saw it first hand.

    My guess is that the two Wildcats were unavailable (remember there are people inside of those suits) to go to Nashville and so Scratch went. Also, almost all of the students/mascots at UK are new…if not all of them!

    He’s obviously trying to get ESPN college football gameday to kick Big & Rich “Coming to your city” to the curb and make this the intro song.
