The Flyers didn’t get enough wins during the regular season to qualify for playoffs, but their mascot Gritty has already won the off-season.
In anticipation of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday night, Gritty dropped a music video based on the viral meme which spawned from Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” song.
If you’re not a Derby Day person, we recommend watching this repeatedly instead.
The video starts off with the very normal pastoral scene of a giant orange charismatic monster walking miniature horses down an old town road. With a bodyguard.
Now, the Kids These Days have created memes-a-plenty through Tik Tok, focusing on the transition between the rap and country moods of the song. Here’s a sampling:
The Kids These Days got nothin’ on Gritty, who drops the beat harder than the Canes dropped the Isles.
Gritty’s Guards costarred and posted the video with the caption “The package likes horses.”
This song’s going to be in our heads all day and for the first time we’re really happy about that.
