Decatur Central students spoof Manning brothers video
A group of students at an Indianapolis high school are hoping to hit it big with a spoof of a popular video.
The Decatur Central High School students created "Peyton's Coming Home" - a take-off of this summer's "Football On Your Phone" viral hit featuring Peyton and Eli Manning - for a music video contest at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The video starts off in a hair salon, just like the Manning brother's video, which was recorded as a promotion for DirecTV. Throughout the video, students appear around Indianapolis, including on the field at Lucas Oil Stadium and on a basketball court with Indiana Pacers star George Hill, an Indianapolis native.
The video's title and theme references Peyton Manning's return to Indianapolis for an October 20th game between his Denver Broncos and the Colts. That game will be seen live on Channel 13 starting at 8:00 p.m.
The Decatur Central students have created a series of videos they have published online, including a party rock take on the "Super Bowl Shuffle," a video made popular by the 1985 Chicago Bears.
Decatur Central will play Martinsville Friday night at Lucas Oil Stadium. You can catch the highlights of that game and several others around central Indiana Friday night at 11:00 on Operation Football!
