I love seeing our troops having fun!
Behold Annapolis: home to the United States Naval Academy. After working hard — conditioning their minds and bodies to serve our country — our marines and sailors deserve a break from their training. So a group of midshipmen got together to create this hilarious parody of Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk.”
The twist, however, is that they changed the lyrics to be about Annapolis!
Midshipman 1st Class Rylan Tuohy rewrote the lyrics with a little help from his friends. Tuohy had always loved making videos, and actually debated between joining the Navy or focusing on his love of filming. It appears he’s found a way to do both!
Surprisingly, they made their video with a zero-dollar budget. And everyone involved in filming (both behind the camera and in front of it) were midshipmen.
Take a look! It’s the Naptown Funk, and it’s hilarious.
In case you missed it, these midshipmen even challenge other Navy bases to create competing videos! Let us know what song you think our troops should parody by voting below:
