Parody of Aggie 'SEC Welcome' video surfaces, original video taken down

Parody of Aggie 'SEC Welcome' video surfaces, original video taken down

Well, it was bound to happen, and fortunately it did.

The original Texas A&M "Welcome to the SEC" video that elicited a wellspring of derision on Tuesday, July 3 — from SEC conference members and A&M alums alike — has already been pulled down off YouTube. Alas, its brief, shining moment in the sun has passed.

In its wake, however, is the surprisingly funny parody video done by The University Co-op, the mega-store supplying the majority of UT's students and alumni with their books and Longhorn paraphernalia.

Apparently, the staff at the Co-op has a passion for video work, with some results turning out better than others. Without hesitation, however, the team took aim at the easy target of the "SEC Welcome" video to rather impressive results. Their President Loftin impression is entirely LOL-worthy.

It's all in good fun, y'all. This is the way rivalries work after all... Welcome to the SEC.
