American College Football with Stephen Fry

(YouTube link)

American football, especially between rival colleges, can be an incomprehensible spectacle to anyone outside the US. Stephen Fry reports:

Simultaneously preposterous... impressive, charming, ridiculous, expensive, overpopulated, wonderful, American.

Even funnier are the YouTube comments speculating as to what camera tricks were used in this video to make the game look so big. Link (embedded YouTube video)

Note this guy is overwhelmed/impressed with the pageantry of the band/cheerleaders/fans/jets and doesn't bother to show a moment of the stupid brutality that is American football.

Weird. I just searched for like 30 minutes last night to watch this and you happen to post it a few hours later. Small world.

Love the video and his reaction to the fly over. Wish they showed some post game footage or big 3rd downs.
