U-M coach Jim Harbaugh embraces his inner rapper in new music video

Posted By on Tue, Jul 19, 2016 at 1:27 PM

A few weeks ago, Drake did that SNL skit where he gave a blatant shout out the University of Michigan, and now, West Coast rapper Bailey made a music video with Jim Harbaugh. 

I'm kind of wondering if rappers associating with U of M (or any college for that matter) is going to become a trend now, which would be cool, but this video is just too much. 



In the opening scenes Harbaugh and Bailey pull up in this yellow luxury sports vehicle. How enticing. I'm already hooked.

And then throughout the video Harbaugh gives us the authentic football coach look with veins pulsing out of his neck and anger steaming from his ears while he screams "Who's got it better than us?"

And just that sweet innocent look makes me think "Nobody, Jim Harbaugh, nobody has it better than us." 

And for just a quick second Harbaugh looks calm and at peace, resembling a passerby on the highway in this common luxury vehicle:

But, there's no time for tranquility when you have football to worry about, so he comes back stronger than ever.

If Chuck Palahniuk were to see this, he'd probably say "Tomato isn't the right word, but it's the first word that comes to mind." 

Recruitment will probably be super successfully this year with this new video out and I can't tell if it's because Harbaugh is totally down with the football cause or if it's because he looks super welcoming and nice in these photos.
