Peyton Manning, Tim Tebow, Andrew Luck and the Genius Parody ‘Some QB That I Used to Know’ (Video)

The current NFL offseason has featured one of the wildest QB carousels in the league’s history, headlined by future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning, who battled multiple neck procedures, eventually finding himself being let go by the only franchise that he ever played for.

Peyton Manning landed with the Denver Broncos, which led to media darling Tim Tebow to be dealt away from Denver to the New York Jets.  To no one’s surprise, Tebow has taken the “Big Apple” by storm, leaving starting quarterback Mark Sanchez to be the second fiddle.

Rookie Andrew Luck was left the keys to the Colts franchise and thousands of fans in both Indianapolis and Denver were left to think of each of these players as a sort of “football ex-girlfriend”.

This pigskin change of addresses makes a perfect mold for the storyline told within the melodic and catchy hit “Somebody I Used To Know”, by Gotye.

That’s why the clever and humorous parody “Some QB That I Used To Know” by HUMORdy is such a brilliant fit for this heavily advertised and frequently talked about NFL offseason storyline.

For those that haven’t seen the parody, here it is (below), a YouTube video that would even make “Weird Al” Yankovic nod in approval.


Now if only these guys would focus more on the Tebow-Sanchez rivalry, or perhaps work on a parody for rookie Redskins QB Robert Griffin III and his socks collection.

Hey, we can only dream, right?

    I think you can look at it a number of ways, Rev. I’m sure some of those folks that liked Peyton were Tennessee alums and then grew attached to the team. That’s more rare though. Some also lose faith upon getting into a rebuilding stage. I have a family member who stuck with the Colts even when they left Baltimore and he’s bummed to see Peyton go, but he’ll move onto Luck. I just can’t believe he didn’t bail on the team after what they did. So many people from that area did.

    An interesting study, KP, would be why fans of a particular franchise become so avid about a player over time, i.e., Peyton-Colts, Favre-Packers, etc., that they become fans of that player more than they become fans of the team.

    If you were a Colts fan before Manning got there, despite his success, once he leaves, why wouldn’t you still be Colts fan afterwards?
