Excited for the Super Bowl? Then Watch These Videos: Animalist

/ Feb 1, 2014



Animalist is owned and operated by Discovery Digital Networks, which is owned and operated by Discovery Communications, which owns Animal Planet, which owns the other “Big Game” during the Super Bowl — the Puppy Bowl. So you can see how an online video network completely devoted to content about animals and pets would figure into a football game.

With that in mind, as your mind is at least partially on football leading up to the Super Bowl, here are a few videos from Animalist made relatable to everyone’s favorite death-sport:

Football players are known to be strong and/or fast. And without playing into stereotypes, the level to which many have to memorize increasingly complicated playbooks, those guys can be pretty smart, too. So here’s “Animalist News” with a series of videos about the strongest, fastest, and (to-be-uploaded) the smartest animal athlete.



You feel like you need something that’s a little more Super Bowl-related? Well how about this video that sets out to decide who would win in a REAL battle between a Seahawk and a Bronco:

What’s that? You’re only interested in commercials? Fine, then. Here’s a video that breaks down if the new Budweiser Super Bowl ad that everyone is talking about — this one — could actually happen in real life (us softies at VideoInk would like to believe that it can).

Tay Zonday talking about horses? Tay Zonday talking about horses.

But who’s going to win, you ask. Why won’t you help us make our gambling choices, you whine, because you can’t make decisions for yourself. Alright then, here is Animal Planet, with an assist from a bunch of puppies and Hamilton the Hipster Cat, on who is likely to win.
