To announce their excitement about joining the Southeastern Conference (SEC), the sweet, low-energy folks of Texas A&M went ahead and made a video saying "Hello" to their fellow conference members.

President Bowen Loftin even appears in front of his hand-picked representatives of frozen-smile Aggie Pride. Bless their hearts, they all look so sad. (But for reals, stick around for the blooper reel, cuz that's when the fun starts.)

Look, I don't know anything about football, but I still know this is probably not the best way to strike fear into the hearts of your (undeniably fierce) competitors. It's a pretty good way to start a book club, though, so that might be fun.

Perhaps we can all just get along out there on the football field this year, eh, guys? LYLAS, Longhorns!
