2 Legit 2 Quit video

In November of our senior year of high school, Zach Klein and Chris Collins put together a music video for our basketball team. Most of it was highlights from junior year, interspersed with our team of mostly white guys dancing, all set to MC Hammer's "Too Legit To Quit". (Well, it uses some of M/A/R/R/S' "Pump Up The Volume", and has a short, possibly cheesy opening using the Top Gun anthem. But "Too Legit" was the team's theme song that year...) It ran on the TVs in SA hall at the end of the lunch mods the whole week before the season started, and was a rousing hit. I snagged a copy of it on VHS before the year was over. It's standard VHS, and it's 14 years old, So the video isn't quite what I'd wish for. I remastered the audio from CD sources, rather than the single analog track on the tape (which had a bit of noise in it.) Due to some speed miscalibration along the way, my audio track doesn't line up completely with the source, but I think it's close enough.

I took the liberty of appending Zach's call from the play-by-play when we beat Weber at the buzzer to win the sectional title. Nowadays, Zach is the weekend anchor and weekday sports reporter for WFTV-TV in Orlando. Chris, of course, is one of Coach Kroojawooski's assistants at Duke. Coach James is an assistant with the Milwaukee Bucks. The rest of the team, I assume most of them are somewhere in the Chicago area, but I haven't seen most of them in ages. (Kevin Coval popped up on HBO's Def Poetry Jam once.)

I've posted the video to YouTube. I don't know what their processing does, the picture in the MP4 I uploaded was much better, even at 320x240, than what they output.
