The 2011 AUHD Intro Video Collection

You’ll remember from last year that the AUHD tunnel video (played when the team was waiting in or about to be in the tunnel) used ‘All I Do is Win” and was the crowd pumper-upper. Once the team was on the field, another video was played that used a symphonic instrumental from the movie Inception.

This year the concepts were somewhat reversed. The tunnel video used symphonic music (also from Inception) and the pre-kickoff video used “Vox Populi” from the band 30 Seconds to Mars.

So basically, last year we got pumped, then we got chillbumps. This year we get chillbumps, then we get pumped. I like that order better.

…and now I’ve written three paragraphs on the order of, and song choices for the introduction videos at an Auburn football game. But I love this stuff, seriously. Watch them below.

For those of us trying to make a playlist, exactly what song from Inception is that?

The WarBlogler 09/04/2011 at 8:43 pm

It’s called ‘Mind Hiest’ and technically just from the Inception trailer.

In the first 3 seconds of the video there’s a silouhette on the left side of the screen. Is that Pat Sullivan? It’s definitely a player because you can clearly see the orange stripes on the jersey. Any ideas, WB?

I guess I should be clear on which video. The “tunnel” vid. The image is to the left of CGC.

It is Lutzenkirchen?

Hey Load 09/08/2011 at 12:34 am

Looking at the vid again, I think you may be right. Just not sure why he’s there and then featured later in the video?

The tunnel video sucks. I would intentionally almost lose to Utah State if they made me come out onto the field to that trash.

DontPanic 09/05/2011 at 1:26 pm

Well since Auburn is my favorite team, Inception is one of my favorite movies, and 30 Seconds to Mars is one of my favorite bands…I think we have a couple of winners.

I love the first video. The tunnel video needs to be WAY more energetic. I’m sure it feels more exciting IN Jordan-Hare but it’s just kinda meh…
That said, I’m All In for whatever they do!
War Damn Eagle!

I noticed the silhouette too, I have no idea. At first I didn’t like the kickoff video’s music, but now that I think think about it…it’d be pretty AUsome if 87,451 people did the BOOM BOOM CLAP together. WDE

Once again I’m very proud of these. I actually teared up on the kickoff video. Well done!! I am and always will be proud to be an Auburn Tiger

I wasn’t too impressed, but if the family chimed in together and learned the words to chant it as it played… it could potentially give a pretty chilling effect.

CHS84 09/05/2011 at 7:09 pm

Vox Populi was one of the choices we got to vote on last year. I like it. I think we need more than just the speech before the players come out.

Compton 09/05/2011 at 10:23 pm

Look, the vox populi song straight up sucks. I love auburn, seriously, but they have a terrible habit of having absolute crap for songs in the stadium. Last year was the major exception when they played the type of pump-you-up music (rap) that will motivate a bunch of young guys (all I do is win, dynamite, etc). What happens? We win the BCS. Coincidence, maybe, but I doubt it. I’m just saying, when will the people who choose the music understand young guys do not get pumped up by gay rock and roll. Case in point, the freaking band playing sweet caroline and living on a prayer. Are you joking? Holy crap! Makes me want to shoot somebody! People, tell me I’m not the only one who feels this way. Blogle, how can you not agree? My 2 cents. WDE

aubandgeek 09/06/2011 at 2:20 am

i don’t think anyone agrees

K. McInnis 09/06/2011 at 1:12 pm

Listening to 87k sing The Jov’ in unison doesn’t get people pumped up?

Compton 09/06/2011 at 3:36 pm

No. It most certainly does not. Especially not people who were in college after 1985…

DavidJ 09/05/2011 at 10:33 pm

Yeah Compton, you’re right. We should have some rap about busting a cap in someone, hoes, and drugs. That’ll get everyone pumped up. thUGA does that. Have you been to Athens lately for a game? It’s awful and the fans are worse.

aubandgeek 09/05/2011 at 11:08 pm


aubandgeek 09/06/2011 at 2:20 am

I can’t believe the negativity here. These videos are excellent and top-notch. Clearly none of these nay-sayers have been to an away game. Auburn’s videos a far above anything other schools produce.

Compton 09/06/2011 at 10:13 am

DavidJ, so songs like “All I Do is Win” and “Dynamite” are about “busting a cap in someone” and drugs? I must have missed that when the were played in the stadium last year. You must also have hated all the music from last season. Bummer for you. The players seemed to like it as evidenced by them jumping around and getting psyched up to smash somebody in the chinstrap.

The fact is, the music played in the stadium is there to produce an emotional response (getting pumped up) in the crowd, but especially the players. What evokes that response better? Sweet Caroline, or All I Do Is Win? Living on a Prayer or an up-beat song with some bass? No one said anything about hoes, drugs, or “busting a cap”. I’m talking about genres here. Melodic, slow, “rock” songs are amotivational, period. Up beat, bass filled songs evoke a stronger adrenaline pumping response. It just happens that most songs like that are “rap” songs. Lets have more of those.

aubandgeek, I’m not commenting on the quality of the videos, they are great. Just the music choice.

Suprxy 09/06/2011 at 3:59 pm

Your logic applies only to the student section. The other 3/4 of the stadium is fine with a rock song. And frankly, Living on a Prayer and Sweet Caroline get a bigger crowd participation that anything else. Now, by the end of the season everyone knew All I Do Is Win, but at first most people were clueless. Give it a rest and just be an Auburn fan instead of a pseudo-fan. I think the phrase is All In. Apparently you aren’t.

Compton 09/06/2011 at 5:00 pm

Well, most importantly, my logic applies to 99% of the football team; you know the people that actually need to get the adrenaline pumping. No one cares if the fat 40 yo guy in the stands is amped, but they should care if the solid 20 yo guy on the field is. Its not just about the fans. It shouldn’t even be mostly about the fans, it should be about what’s good for the players adrenaline…

Scarlett 09/06/2011 at 1:44 pm

The kick-off video song choice sucks as does the band 30 Seconds to Mars. I’d rather take a little more time in the bathroom mixing my bourbon drink than rush to hear this.

Alston 09/06/2011 at 3:59 pm

The tunnel video is pretty good because it focuses on the crowd but doesn’t actually get me amped up like the “All I Do Is Win” intro. It’s missing the participation aspect.

Now, the Inspiration video is a big basket of wrong. Don’t put the lyrics on the video unless your trying to do a Mickey Mouse sing-along. Also, don’t try to amp up a crowd looking for big hits and big plays by playing monotonous music like Coldplay. Nothing says “We’ll bust some skulls” like droning emo music.

Compton 09/06/2011 at 5:01 pm

Your last sentence is dead on. Couldn’t agree more. No one seems to understand this.

Hey Load 09/08/2011 at 12:40 am

“Nothing says “We’ll bust some skulls” like droning emo music.”

This. ^

Now I will say that I like video and even the music (somewhat). But for the kickoff song? Absolutely not.

Scarlett 09/06/2011 at 4:45 pm

I think Alston’s logic also applies to 99.9 of the football players.

The WarBlogler 09/08/2011 at 12:53 am

According to AUHD, the mystery player at the beginning of the tunnel video is Brandon Mosley. There was no special reason for this. He was just representing any Auburn football player.
