After taking the entire 2011 season off (and let’s be honest, we all sort of did), the man, the myth, the legend, A96 (or autiger96) returns to give you a heart-pumping, chillbump-inducing preview of your 2012 Auburn Tigers.
You only get a little tease today, but the full version named “Auburn Arise” will be released next Tuesday, August 14. Enjoy this taste for now. If it excites you, the full version will make your head explode. Believe me.
I also need to clear up some confusion that I’ve noticed on Twitter as I’ve pumped this thing. This is not the video that will play before kickoffs. Those are produced by AUHD. This video is simply a masterpiece from a fan with an incredible video editing talent.
Remember, you can view every one of his works, dating back to 2005, over at A96Productions.com. Oh, and don’t steal the videos and put them on YouTube. That only increases the chance of A96 giving up on humanity and going into hiding again. It also makes it more likely to be taken down by the video nazis. Just enjoy inside the friendly confines of the ‘Blogle and A96 Productions. You’ll be safe here.
Is that song from Lord of the Rings? Having trouble placing it…
its Man of Stell— Composed by Han Zimmer
*Man of Steal
And it’s also, originally from the Lord of Rings.
The song is “The Bridge of Khazad Dum” by Howard Shore, and it is certainly from the Lord of the Rings! Good Ear, and War Eagle!
Good Ear, Indeed!!
Man cant wait to see the full length video. A96 I have never seen anyone make videos like yours they are awesome. Props to you bud and WDE
I’ve heard that song in a few different trailers recently… Very cool. Didn’t get the “excited” goosebumps I usually get from an A96 production, but I am eagerly awaiting the full length video.
Yeah, Stephen… they used the same music in the “The Man of Steel” trailer in the theaters.
Great music… very adaptable.
I greatly enjoy AU96 productions when I can find them. Very talented person. This year we need to remember our past. Arise Auburn is very poignant indeed. I pray our prayers are answered again…
You can find them all at A96Productions.com
Yea, I got the chill bumps. Looking forward to the full release!
I don’t like the term “Auburn pride.” I know its a Chizik quote, but I think of the bammers as the prideful loudmouths – “Tide Pride” and all that – and think of Auburn as more humble, which is a more desirable trait.
I agree. Would be applicable (albeit really goofy) if a group of tigers were referred to as a ‘pride’ considering the Family label, but then I remembered a group of tigers is called a ‘streak’. Or an ‘ambush’. Auburn Ambush is a t-shirt waiting to happen, but an Auburn Streak has the makings of a potentially unsettling meme.
Thanks A96….been missing your outstanding work.
