Scott Stapp Sings: Real Life Edition.

(I realize two posts in one day might seem a little excessive, but fuck poetry, this one’s real important.)
Last summer, on the steps of the Tuttle dormitory, my friend Jonathan & I were being amazing counselors when we came up with the idea for a sketch called “Scott Stapp Sings,” in which Creed’s frontman Scott Stapp sings patriotic songs with his unique I-sold-my-soul-to-be-an-Eddie-Vedder-knockoff flair.
The songs would go a little like this:
O beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of graiooowwww
For purple mountain’s majesties
With arms wide oooopeeeeeowwwwwnnnn!
America, America, God shed his grace on theeeeoowww
& crowned thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining seaaooowww
My country ’tis of Thee
Sweet Laooowwnd of Liberty
Of thee I sieeeeowwwwng
Land where my fathers died
Land of the pilgrims’ pride
From every mountain side
With arms wide ooopeeeeowwnnn!
Sadly, no one wanted to invest in our sketch so it died there on the steps of Tuttle. Or so we thought. Turns out the Florida Marlins were hiding out under the stairs & heard our awesomeness & now Scott Stapp is synonymous with America’s favorite pastime. By which I mean making the sound “Eeeeooowwwww.”
The MLB has removed the video of Stapp’s most recent patriotic endeavor, probably because YouTube simply can’t do proper justice to the magic. But you can watch this instead. Chills.
(Did he just sing “perilous sight”?)
