Browsing: Bored Marine Video

Marines weren’t going to be outdone by a bunch of moms and their preschoolers singing the hit theme to Disney’s “Frozen.” Theses Marines took to their barracks common area to belt out the lyrics to “Let It Go” with some real passion. And just to Marine-ize the rendition, they somewhat creepily cheer and yell some “Oorahs!” when the animated leading lady, Elsa, has a wardrobe change. [HTML1] The video has more than 116,000 shares since it was posted to Facebook on Tuesday. Their voices don’t quite reach Idina Menzel’s range, but they sang with enthusiasm. Whatever motivates you, Marines.

A group of combat cameras produced a skit showing how the Corps is adapting to the government shutdown and budget cuts through several key changes: replacing rifles with Nerf guns, feeding Marines cold food instead of hot and forcing married couples to live in the barracks alongside single Marines. [HTML1] It’s titled “Adapt and Overcome” and features a mustached first sergeant telling his Marines how the cutbacks were going to affect the service. The combat cameras have to swap their Nikon cameras for disposable Fujis, he tells them. And their laptops are replaced with Etch A Sketches. “Don’t be a ninny…

A viral video sensation has taken hold over the last few weeks in which people break it down to the “Harlem Shake,” a rowdy song by Baauer, an American producer and DJ. Not surprisingly, Marines jumped in on this quickly. A quick search this morning shows there are numerous Marine Corps-themed “Harlem Shake” videos, some of which can definitely get a person with a reasonable sense of humor laughing. I present the following without judgment, and with the disclaimer that there may be some suggestive dance moves in here. Still, they’ll definitely live on in Bored Marine Video lore: In…

Marines are always pretty quick to jump on the latest pop song craze, and “Gangnam Style” is no exception. Marine wife, Erin Giove, posted this video of the III MEF Rock Band taking the stage in their dress blues and Santa hats during a holiday show in Okinawa, Japan, to her Facebook page yesterday. In the video, the Marines bust out their moves to South Korean musician PSY’s pop hit to a cheering crowd. Giove’s video has already been shared about 6,000 times on Facebook and has about 1,800 Likes. The Weather Channel’s “Coast Guard Florida” TV show shared it…

Just about anyone with regular Internet access is well aware of the sensation that Carly Rae Jepson’s song “Call Me Maybe” has become. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of videos featuring people from all walks of life dancing to the summer hit. Marines have already joined the act, as my colleague Gina Harkins pointed out last month. The video she pointed out then has now been viewed more than 20,000 times. However, we at Marine Corps Times would be remiss if we didn’t point out another, more recent version of Marines performing the same song. It was posted online early…

Marines can’t let their commander in chief have all the “Call Me Maybe” fun. The video montage of President Obama singing Carly Rae Jepsen’s hit is making some big Internet waves. But it’s looking like a van-full of Marines were on the “Call Me Maybe” case first. In a YouTube video posted the day before Obama’s breakout rendition starting making the rounds, some Marines were caught on camera dancing to the girly pop tune. So in case Katy Perry just wasn’t enough — check out this new Marine favorite. It definitely inspired these devil dogs to bust out some pretty sweet choreography.…

Well, you can’t blame a brother for trying. A video has been circulating on the web in which Sgt. Scott Moore, a member of 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, out of Camp Lejeune, N.C., asks actress Mila Kunis to attend his unit’s Nov. 18 Marine Corps birthday ball in Greenville, N.C. He’s at a combat outpost in Musa Qala, Afghanistan, when he makes his plea. “Hey Mila,” he says. “It’s Sergeant Moore, but you can call me Scott. I just wanted to take a moment out of my day to invite you to the Marine Corps Ball on November 18th in…

It’s not every day that I learn a new word while searching for the latest and greatest Bored Marine Video. Today is one of those days. Below, Marines with Combat Camera in Afghanistan perform “Don’t Turn the Lights On.” This is no Britney Spears jam, though. This song is originally by Chromeo, an “electrofunk duo.” And thus, the word of the day: electrofunk. I have to say, this Bored Marine Video is a cut above the typical material. Well-produced? Check. Well lip-synced? Check. Psychedlic undertones? Absolutely. For the record, it appears these Marines are based at Camp Leatherneck, where they…

One week ago on Monday, a Marine corporal in Afghanistan posted a video of him and his buddies lip-syncing Britney Spears’ “Hold It Against Me.” It was amusing, well-edited and uplifting — and quickly became one of the most popular current YouTube videos in the world after Spears herself shared it on Twitter three days later. By now, you’ve probably seen the video. As I write this post, it has been viewed more than 2.6 million times in less than two weeks. YouTube statistics show it’s the third-most popular music video on the site this week. [HTML1] Not wanting to…

[HTML1] I’m not sure how we missed this one here on Battle Rattle, but thanks to USATODAY’s Lifeline Blog, we now know there are some motivated filmmakers in the Marine Corps. Posted earlier this week, the video already has 150,000 views. The video was made by Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 266 (Reinforced) and Marine Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 169 (HMLA-169). Britney herself has seen it and loves it. [blackbirdpie url=”https://twitter.com/#!/britneyspears/status/61227100706840576″]
