Blount Hall Productions – Soda Boy
I’m sure you remember when one of the most annoying , yet retardedly catchy, songs of all time came out: Soulja Boy’s “Crank That” ( March 2007). What a good American classic. In fact, as we all know, the song was so good that it even came packed with its own dance, a dance that is sure to remain in “Best Dance Ever” hall of fame for Thousands of years along with “The Macarana” and “The Twist“. Because of this songs stupidity and awesomeness, tons of “spoofs” of the song were born onto YouTube. Fortunately for us, some dudes from Blount Hall (the men of Blount Hall Productions) also hopped aboard the spoof train and made their UAB Famous “Soda Boy”. Check out the video if you haven’t already, it is about a year old but I figured a lot of people have probably not seen it yet.
If the embeded viedoe doesn’t work, CLICKY!
This video got so popular around campus at one point that my teacher (Dr. March in the Chem dept.) played the video to the whole class in the huge Chemistry lecture hall on all 3 screens. It was awesome! Since just over a year the video has been viewed 250,000 times. That’s pretty awesome! I tried to get in contact with the guys and find out who all was in the video but they didn’t answer my emails.

UPDATE: One of the guys from the video email me back and said that the two main guys in the video still go to UAB, i’ll try and track them down.
