VIDEO: USC posts awkward 'Trojans For Life' promo video

By Jerry Hinnen | College Football Writer

One critic's perspective: it's past time to retire the genre of "lame student-made college promo videos that go viral out of shame and/or mockery." Like ringtones or "No Fear" t-shirts, they may have been fun and fashionable for a while, but after the 427th iteration, hasn't their time passed? "We Are ND" -- the Freekbass-fueled undisputed champion of the genre -- was unleashed on the world more than three years ago, which in Internet terms makes it about as hip as a slap-wrist bracelet.

But maybe that's just this one critic's perspective, and Lord knows that Irish fans chagrined by "We Are ND" deserve their chance to talk a bit of smack back at any USC fans who got a laugh out of that misfire. So here's "Trojans For Life," which was posted to the USC official YouTube channel and attempts to marry "Glee"-style acapella to the (ahem) timeless spectacle of amateur college rapping. Enjoy (?):
