This is a classic movie scene. And for anyone who has seen it, they knew that Bluto’s confusion of US history did not hurt the impact of his speech.
NFL reporter Jeff Darlington, a fan of the movie, uses this speech in reference on Twitter every now and then. However, some of his 68,000+ Twitter followers don’t get the pop culture reference.
He used it on Monday night when the Redskins attempted to come back from a 33-7 deficit.
In return, we get a lot of fans calling out Darlington for not knowing his history. Darlington retweeted some of the offended people.
Of course, in classic Darlington fashion, he will offer a free DVD copy of Animal House to any of the people he retweeted. It’s a history lesson in pop culture for those who don’t get it.
