TulsaWorld- Two days after being fired from his alma mater, former Durant football coach Byron Cordell had a response to his ousting -- and it was especially entertaining.
Cordell and his family recorded a parody to Taylor Swift's Billboard Top 100-topping song "Shake It Off" as a comeback and posted it on YouTube over the weekend.
I don't know what's more concerning, that this video reminded me of "Cheaper By The Dozen", or the fact that I watched that movie more times than any rational human being should. This coach is eerily reminiscent to Steve Martin, It is almost like his character is based on Byron Cordell. Who knew that movie was based on a true story?
I actually like this move. I think it's because it was clearly done it jest. It was not inspired by bitterness. Just a silly little thing to do with his family before eventually hitting the road. The ability to laugh at yourself is one that is present in almost all people that are truly happy. Whether that be when you say or do something stupid, or when you lose your job. Byron has that ability and it is contagious as evidenced by his family.
I do have one problem with this video though. Coach Cordell's kids suck. I know they were raised to know better than dragging the American flag on the ground. Byron bleeds red, white, and blue. He must have not been paying attention during this scene. How did he manage to produce 3 little girls that can't lip sync Taylor Swift on a moderately capable level. Jesus. I hate Taylor Swift and I know the words better than these little twerps. Absolutely no stage presence. No flare. No electricity. Got to give me more than that ladies. If your Dad is going to be the type to shoot a Taylor Swift video, you better learn to bring the goods or you are going to drag down the family name.
Pray for this little boy. Three older sisters? He would be better off going deaf now if he is going to spend his formative years in that household.
