Petition To Remove And Delete The Indy Super Bowl Shuffle Video

by @thoughtontracks

Our friends at Do317 are pissed. We at Thought on Tracks feel their pain. We understand that once a video goes viral, there is no turning back. But with your help, maybe we can prove to the country at large that not everyone in Indianapolis is a moron. Thanks Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association for setting us back about a quarter century with your horrendous parody of the 85 Bears Super Bowl shuffle. We understand that it was intended as a joke. Unfortunately, this one comes at the expense of our city’s residents.

From Do317:

This video is embarrassing to the residents of Indianapolis and diminishes years of hard work many people have put forth to curb perceptions about Indianapolis. This is a progressive town, but unfortunately this video is not.  Yes, we know it is a parody of the Bears 1985 Super Bowl Shuffle video, but we’re extremely disappointed that with all the incredibly talented and creative people available in our fair city, a poor rehash of such dated material was all that was conceptualized.  Yes, we know a lot of people put in work to make this video, we respect that, and it probably seemed fun at the time, but when the final product was viewed, this should have been scrapped.  This is a gross embarrassment to the city of Indianapolis.  We demand it be deleted and sunk to the bottom of the ocean!

Sign the petition.

If you must, you can watch the video here.

    It’s like walking in on your parents having sex. There are certain things you cannot unsee.

      Paul, I had no idea that an attorney could be so funny.

        The video is now down. Thanks to all for reading, commenting and signing the petition. Special thanks to Jeff and ICVA who, I’m certain, only had the city’s best interests at heart. At the end of the day, y’all made the correct and difficult decision. Hopefully next time you’re working with a shoestring budget, you’ll have the good sense to call on this city’s many talented citizens to step up and create something worth presenting to the rest of the country. Given the opportunity, I have no doubt that some incredible work could’ve been done regardless of the money involved.
