College baseball team spoofs Major League Amex Card spoof

You gotta hand it to the Sul Ross University NCAA D-III baseball team. Now unless you've attended Sul Ross or know someone who's attended the university, then this is probably the first time you've heard of the institution. From what I've Googled, it's a small public university in Alpine, TX whose baseball team produced a tremendous video.

If you've seen the movie Major League, then you'll know of the American Express ad spoof that was shown that has various characters on the fictional Cleveland Indians pennant-winning team wearing tuxedos, touting the credit card with Willie Mays Hays (Wesley Snipes) sliding into home at the end.

The ad spoof has been recreated over the years, but the Sul Ross University baseball team may have done the best one by far. Going shot-for-shot, the team promoted its student ID's rather than the Amex card. The result is below, and it's infinitely better than another tiresome Harlem Shake video:

Very good and if the Sul Ross baseball team makes it to the Division III playoffs, let's hope they do a deodorant spoof for a sequel.
