Chargers set new bar with creative, subtle, hilarious schedule release video

@Chargers

The Chargers are still trying to become everything they hope to be as a football team. If they’re looking for inspiration, they should consider the brilliant work their social-media team has done.

With pretty much every team creating a schedule-release video that aspires to be entertaining and/or humorous, the Chargers hit a grand slam with their 2022 offering. Crafted in anime and backed by a catchy, fast-paced song, the video rips through the team’s schedule of games with an overabundance of subtle shade being thrown in every possible direction.

You’ll need to watch it over and over again in order to catch all of it. Even when you think you’ve noticed all of it, you’ll notice something else.

The video came after a hilarious preview of the schedule by comparing the teams they’ll play to various made-up types of Pop-Tarts.

Watch the video. Again. And again. There’s so much in there worth appreciating. It sets a bar that all teams will have a hard time matching or exceeding next year. Including the Chargers.

  1. If only the Chargers put this much effort into actually winning playoff games…

  2. That is super well done. Not sure who they think the audience is though– There is virtually zero crossover between fans of anime and NFL.

    There’s way more than zero crossover between NFL fans and anime fans. Several of the most popular anime genres are specifically focused on the demographics we traditionally consider prime sports fan demos, and the increased ease of access due to the explosion in streaming means that anime fandom is not primarily restricted to a small niche of nerds anymore.

    Also, while this is great, the Lions release video was better imo. More punch and some really savage barbs.

  4. As a Charger’s fan agree with Mike this is one of the best videos ever. Every detail is intentional. Some of the most subtle details are the D-140 = How much Devante Adams cost the Raiders, and Justin Herbert’s glove while riding the Dolphin is Tyreek Hill’s Peace Sign.
