Instead of making a Hard Knocks video similar to my other videos, I decided to go a more creative route and depict Bengals training camp as if it were a sitcom. You can watch it in HD if you’d like. I may still do a regular video using Hard Knocks footage later. I don’t plan to do any videos for the current season until it’s over, so there’ll be some time between then and now. The music and transition styles for this video come from the best sitcom of all time; most of you will recognize it, and for those who don’t, I almost feel sorry for you. I plan to do at least one more sitcom video when time permits. If any of you have seen the Hard Knocks series and want to suggest a scene that would be great for depicting as a sitcom, especially a serious scene that can be made funny, please comment below.
Note that beyond the typical sitcom laughs, I also added elevator music when the Bengals guy is stepping out of the elevator, used a loud audience applause for the entrance of Geno Atkins through the doorway, an "ooohhh" for Andre Smith dissing Tyler Eifert, an "aaawww" for Andy Dalton's dog Zoe, and tried to make a serious scene funny at the expense of Mike Zimmer. That's perhaps the hardest part, taking a serious scene and trying to change the mood. I also added in the typical sitcom ending applause/cheering for Jermaine Gresham playfully dissing Geno Atkins.
