This 2020 College Football Conference Drama Skit Is Comedy Gold

Videos by OutKick

The fine folks at SEC Shorts should be commended for the 2020 college football hype video they dropped this week that features some of the best comedy I’ve seen all summer. Saturday Night Live couldn’t produce a piece of art like this if they copied SEC Shorts work word for word.

COVID has had many people down in the dumps searching for comedy to help them get through another week of figuring out how to survive while working from home as the kids finish off a five-month summer bender only to go back to school with COVID restrictions that have moms and dads drinking (hard liquor) like fish. I know many people haven’t had a good belly laugh this summer — Ohio State fans could use some comedy right now — due to all the stress.

The Mayo Clinic advises you to get a laugh in on a daily basis. It’s great for your health.

A good laugh has great short-term effects. When you start to laugh, it doesn’t just lighten your load mentally, it actually induces physical changes in your body. Laughter can:

  • Stimulate many organs. Laughter enhances your intake of oxygen-rich air, stimulates your heart, lungs and muscles, and increases the endorphins that are released by your brain.
  • Activate and relieve your stress response. A rollicking laugh fires up and then cools down your stress response, and it can increase and then decrease your heart rate and blood pressure. The result? A good, relaxed feeling.
  • Soothe tension. Laughter can also stimulate circulation and aid muscle relaxation, both of which can help reduce some of the physical symptoms of stress.

Watch this and try not to laugh. It’s impossible. College football is the gift that keeps on giving and this work from SEC Shorts is actually going to save lives.

And if you liked that one, you’ll really enjoy this one where Missouri & Arkansas find out the two additional SEC teams they’ll play this season:
