V.O.D. 8.22.13: One Day More

Written by Stephen J. Nesbitt on .

You didn't think it was possible, did you? To be honest, I didn't either. But, yes, someone managed to compile a 2013 college football hype video to the sweet sounds of the Les Misérables' closer "One Day More."

I watched the movie, am addicted to the 20th-anniversary album and just finished reading the book earlier this month. Let me be the first to tell you: despite everything in you saying that this works to use as the soundtrack to your hype video, it doesn't. It just doesn't. It takes until the halfway point to reach some true chorus, and even then I'm seeing the tear-streaked faces of the French revolutionaries, Jean Valjean, Fantine, and the lovers Cosette and Marius instead of Jadeveon Clowney obliterating Vincent Smith and Johnny Manziel striking his Superman pose. 

You can't do it. There have to be rules somewhere around here about what can and cannot be used for hype videos. Still, I watched the whole thing and laughed all the while.
