Last night, Jay Jacobs tweeted a four-second video clip of a what appeared to be football intro video playing on Auburn’s new video board. It was apparently only played for his staff as a preview of the board. So here’s what I did in hopes of finding out what song was playing on the video.
I found some janky site that will take a Twitter url and give you the video file in it, I ripped the audio from that file, and I played it on my laptop with Shazam open on my phone. It didn’t work. Then I found a few sites that allow you to upload audio files and tell you the name of the song. None worked. The video was too short. I gave up.
Then Auburn posted the video on their YouTube channel this morning. It was just a hype video — a good hype video — and not an intro video. Sometimes you lay your guts on the line and you come away empty-handed. And sometimes Auburn gives you stuff that wasn’t really what you were looking for, but is cool anyway.
Oh, and that aspect ratio was built for the BOOMtron.
The aspect ratio on this video fits the new video board perfectly. I would expect this to be played at least a few times in-stadium.
