Default How awful was the CSN pregame intro video?

This has to be a one-time thing, right? Please god, be a one-time thing...

For those of you who haven't had your stomachs turned...

Where's the option for indifferent? Yeah, it wasn't great, but it wasn't the worst thing ever put out either.

I thought it was funny, showed some swag, and was obviously meant to be over the top bad. The vibe it sent out to me was "we are the White Sox and we don't give a damn what anyone thinks about us" I love that attitude. Instead of tip toeing around we should be brash. We've been the best team in the city for a long time now.

The fact that it is getting some national attention makes me think they should keep riding with it. Its our time so let's take it.

Which is worse, "Terrible" or "Awful"?

I agree with Doublem. It was the worst thing I have ever seen.

I thought it was great.

The editing of the lip syncing was so well done. I was glad to see how in tune with the current generation they are by taking one of the most popular band's out there today in Saliva. Really some of the best work I have seen.

I hold out hope that it was an April Fool's Day joke.

Otherwise, someone out there thought this was a good idea, and then someone greenlit that idea, and then someone else failed to say, "Whoa, whoa, what the **** is going on here?" as production began.

That's at least three people who need to be fired by my count.

No. It was one of the worst videos ever made and all copies should be deleted for eternity.

Swag? Seriously?

Pretty damn close to it I'd say. Awful doesn't even begin to describe it.

For the record, Comcast had nothing to do with this. This was strictly done by the Sox in house production crew and no one else.

Do you think the production budget was more than $500?

I'm guessing there wasn't a budget at all.

Personally, I hated it, but I can see that our team is filled with a bunch of younger guys that are big and brashy, so I guess if this video would make a 15 yr old boy say "wow, this is cool", I'm for it. We need more younger fans to bug their parents to come to the park on Sundays.
