Wait! We want people to come to north Texas for this?

Our good friend Rick Chandler, over at NBC’s Out of Bounds has a great story about the North Texas Super Bowl Committee and their new video introducing the Host Committee’s Super Bowl XLV extravaganza.

The video is funny, but you can’t help but hope these folks keep their day job.

Now without further ado, here are several “North Texas athletes, mayors, and personalities” singing This Kiss, which is supposed to get you excited for the arrival of Super Bowl XLV in Dallas. This was my reaction.

When you choose a song with an octave range that would challenge any singer, and pair it with a dozen or so of the most tone-deaf people in Texas, the result cannot help but be golden. The video debuted at the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee’s Kick-off Concert Series on Saturday in Fort Worth, headlined by Faith Hill. From the Dallas Morning News:

Baseball Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, Pro Football Hall of Famers Roger Staubach and Emmitt Smith and Hockey Hall of Famer Brett Hull join Rangers Michael Young and Ian Kinsler, Mavericks Dirk Nowitzki and Rolando Blackman, Dallas Cowboys Tony Romo and Daryl Johnston, Olympic gold medalist Michael Johnson, broadcaster Pat Summerall and a kinda creepy looking Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones to sing Faith Hill’s “This Kiss.” All I can say is the folks at the Super Bowl XLV Host Committee office are geniuses. Or have pictures of people. You can’t help but smile.

In other news, hell is real. You can’t help but smile.
