The “Pony Up” Campaign Gets Even Worse

A couple of concerned FrontBurnervians have sent along this YouTube video of a pair of knuckleheads, who call themselves The Knuckleheads, singing a song called “Pony Up.” I’m trying to figure out my least-favorite part about the video. It’s tough. I think first and foremost is the Knuckleheads’ weak attempts at trash talk directed at TCU, specifically the supposedly ugly cheerleaders there. Granted, I’m biased. My wife is a former TCU cheerleader, and she’s hot. Very hot. So there’s that. And also the song itself isn’t as funny, clever, or catchy as the Knuckleheads probably think it is. And I can’t shake the feeling that, although they are obviously fans of the Mustangs, they’re fans of self-promotion first. Plus, the fact that three more people have sent me the link while I’ve been typing this post proves that the video has gone viral. Emphasis on viral. Look, the Knuckleheads are probably good guys and fun to drink beer with and all of that. But this YouTube video… It’s perpetuating the Pony Up problem.

Go, Mustangs.
