The proud city of Indianapolis has been momentarily shamed by a leaked video.
A clip of Colts quarterback Curtis Painter canoodling with Kim Kardashian? Oh no. It's a ripoff of the Super Bowl Shuffle.
The cute but awkward parody video of the 1985 Chicago Bears' famous fight song has lit a match on message boards all over the country.
The Indy Star reports the video shows hospitality workers attempting to rap -- in an effort to publicize the city's hotels and restaurants. Naptown supporters may like the rendition, but skeptics would say the video is more likely to give you a "reversal of fortune" as they say in the world of competitive eating.
The new Shuffle was supposed to be a marketing gimmick, intended only for the eyes of meeting planners. That would have been fine had the folks at the Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association not decided to place it on YouTube. A few sports bloggers with lots of free time found the video and, needless to say, hilarity ensued.
How bad was it?
Facebook users quickly put together a "Make the Indy Super Bowl Shuffle Go Away" page. Twitter dwellers also goofed on the video. The tourism agency finally said "no mas" and removed it from YouTube.
Despite the negative publicity, the Indy Convention & Visitors Association says they've gotten "nothing but positive feedback," from the target audience of the video. WISH-TV reports Indianapolis is closer to landing a convention thanks to the whole affair.
Maybe the video was leaked on purpose...
