It goes without saying that Lane Kiffin is not exactly Mr. Popular in Knoxville these days.
However, he does still have his pockets of supporters, as evidenced by the video that will follow.
Sung to the tune of a Soul Asylum– hit, “Runaway Lane” is a little ditty that embraces all that was good and righteous about the 14-month Kiffin Era with the Volunteers. At least I think it does. Either that or it drags his name even further into the mud. One of the two.
I will say one thing that I know for certain about this montage: the Photoshop job that accompanies the lines “had no chance against Urban and Saban…” and “ran away from Urban and Saban…” is something that will forever be burned into the far reaches of my mind, the very places I’m scared to go to in the first place.
Oh, and the kid-on-the-tricycle scene is exceptionally well done as well. I smell an Oscar for editing and/or cinematography.
(Writer’s note: Edited to give the proper credit to Soul Asylum. Apparently, I was not a big fan of that group. Or Tom Petty either.)
