Behind The Scenes ESPN-At-Night Video Lacks Production Quality

Waking up this morning, I was in a strange state of mind, which isn’t weird in and of itself, but as I rubbed the sleep out of my eyes and looked around the YMCA, my thoughts turned, as they often do, to the goings-on at ESPN. So I says to myself, I says, “You know what, Weed? Have you ever contemplated exactly what happens during late nights at ESPN HQ? You know, other than Alexander Ovechkin’s Russian spy antics and the super secret airings of Chris Berman’s extensive collection of snuff films. So I’ve heard*.

Well, lo and behold, on the exact day – the exact day, I says – what falls into my lap but a video from tWWL regarding the very thing I was contemplating as I fought with my bunk mate over a piece of government cheese? A damn video detailing how “ESPN never sleeps.” Spooky.

And let me tell you, while the people profiled seem quite nice and very capable individuals, the video lacked any semblance of acceptable production quality. I mean, the audio is not even synced up with the video. The entire time I was watching it I felt like I was watching a 1970s poorly dubbed martial arts film. Well, that, or that one dude from the Police Academy movies. Same thing.

* I’ve never heard such a thing
