This video was made by one of the most dedicated Packer Fans in Cyberspace today, David Ray aka IronMan, at a time when The Legend who had retired in style and on his own changed his mind and spawned a Favre Fan or Packer Fan Craze as the early onslaughts of the summer heat fried the brains of some wanna-be diehards. This video exemplifies the inanity of the time and parodies the idiocy of a generational sect of Packer Fans. After you watch the video - listen to our podcast (in our player below) from the week of the protests to get a sense of the time and place as well as Aaron & I's initial kudos of a soon to be classic fan parody. (If we have anything to say about it that is. :chz )
Says David aka "Ironman" Ray to CHTV of making the video -
Well this was one of the first videos I have edited, so it took me a while to make it. It was kind of a pain in the ass, but worth the effort I think. The first one I did was ok, but the "rally" footage in that one was basically just people standing around with signs. I then found better "rally" footage, and it went perfect with the "rabble rabble" stuff from South Park.
As far as what inspired me to make it, Tromadz, and Arrowgargantuan, often used the term "Rabble Rabble!" at packerforum.com; and when I saw these rallies going on, I knew what I had to do. It didn't get as many replies as I thought it would at first. And I was kind of disappointed considering how long it took me to make. So needless to say, I was pretty excited when I saw it was nominated for a Titletown Award!
Here is episode 25 of our podcast Packer Transplants where Aaron and I discuss the rally, the rabble video and all things the week of July 15th 2008.
