University of Texas Football Walk-Ons Spoof Nickelback in Curtain Call Video
As a football walk-on, there is no guarantee you'll ever see the field during a game, but that's alright for a trio of senior University of Texas Longhorn players who made great use of the team's facilities leaving their own mark on their time in Austin ... with a little help from Nickelback.
The senior walk-ons have been gaining notoriety on the UT campus for their social media presence and sense of humor, with their farewell video being a spoof of the Nickelback hit "Photograph." Check out the video below.
The clip opens with the trio showing one of their favorite shirtless shots from the locker room and laughing about the experience before taking viewers on a trip through their facilities.
As with most college students, food is of the utmost importance and the guys make one final raid through all of the goodies available to them. They also get in some lifting before taking the field, but rather than being ready for competition, the trio break out the guitars and drum sticks to play at the 50 yard line of the gridiron cathedral, the Darrell K Royal Memorial Stadium. But while mimicking Nickelback, they never lose sight of the fact that they're football players, getting in some agility drills while onstage.
The players will finish out their tenure on the football field, but might want to consider a career in entertainment after all is said and done. The video was released ahead of the Longhorns finale in the Texas Bowl against the Missouri Tigers.
As for the real Nickelback, the band will be back on the road with the "Feed the Machine" tour resuming in February. See their dates here.
