When the Irish play Monday folks across the country will see a slick new TV-spot highlighting the University and its students. It was just put on the University's website Wednesday and it's already getting rave reviews. Notre Dame Fan John Barnett said, "That was really cool, I thought that was really really cool, artistic, and everything, really just awesome."
A few weeks ago the University gathered hundreds of students at the stadium, the end result is the new commercial. It features about 400 students in the stands forming a number one. Morgan Galang said, "I really like it because of course we're Notre Dame fans and I absolutely love the music, it always gets me so hyped up and excited about it." Haven Russell said, "I thought that commercial was pretty cool. It was pretty informative and pretty inspirational as well." Michael Farkas said, "I kinda got goosebumps just watching it." That's Exactly the response the University is going for. University Spokesperson said, "I think the point of any spot, whether it's for humor or drama is to touch people's emotions and that's certainly our hope."
It's touching their emotions and also getting them ready for the BCS Championship game. "It's kinda weird that a commercial would make me more excited for a football game but that actually did." Farkas said. And Barnett said, "It just makes me pumped for the game."
And it's also teaching fans something. "For the first time in history we have the number one football team and the number one graduation rate in the Country and we thought that was something that how unique it is we wanted to spotlight it." said Brown.
The commercial will stay on Notre Dame's website indefinitely so you can check it out right now or a week from now after the game. You can watch the entire video by clicking here.
It will also air during halftime on Monday January 7th during the BCS Championship game. During the game you can see it in HD.
