Love's Comin' Down
For the record, I think "Soulja Boy" is a really dope song. Compare it with "Chicken Noodle Soup," which is more an infomercial or Pavlovian cue. I also like that it's an actual dance, instead ofjust leaning back, snapping your finger, or clapping your hands. But up until now, I'd never thought I'd post a "Soulja Boy" video on FreeDarko, despite the fact that I watch at least five a day.
To all things, there is an end. Wait till about forty seconds in, during the time-out. And what's so amazing about this is that, unlike the UT football squad's highly performative take, S-Jax, Harrington and Baron aren't at all distracted from the huddle. The dance has become a tic, a comforting gesture, a stance.
This clip also made me really anxious for some reason. Like the season really is about to start, and this—the kind of thing I'm in this fan game for—will be happening on the regular. And in some ways, that is truly overwhelming.
