If you missed our first batch of Army-Navy spirit spots — inspired by Justin Timberlake, phone and insurance commercials, and David Hasselhoff, in rough order of artistic reputation — click here.
Last week’s quartet did not include the winners of the game’s official contest, which were named Monday on the game’s official blog. Here’s the Army winner, sent in by Maj. Randall Stillinger of the 36th Combat Aviation Brigade, featuring a joint operation gone horribly, humorously wrong:[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1eiKDGu6J8[/youtube]
The Navy winner, sent in by James Smith, plays on the Mids’ win streak and incorporates a children’s TV callback:[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vW16jqRsq0Y[/youtube]
Both winners receive tickets, on-field passes and parking passes to the game.
Meanwhile, on the official Navy YouTube channel and boasting more hits than the two contest winners put together, service members at the Naval Diving and Salvage Training Center in Panama City, Fla., showed what the game would look like if played underwater. Despite the conditions, note the proper handoff form at the 20-second mark:[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNIhFdxr06Q[/youtube]
Finally, our good friends at Outside The Wire have their own stack of Beat Navy suggestions, including this Ylvis-fueled short involving some Army brats:[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvnF8uDwfqI[/youtube]
