Allendale Robotics’ FIRST Parody Contest Entry

From the FIRST Website: “FIRST is looking for a brand new way to reach others outside of our community! Since parody is the sincerest form of flattery, we want you to re-create your favorite song — FIRST style! Make a video. Send us the link. Make it Loud!”

When the students at Allendale Robotics read this announcement from the FIRST website, they knew what they had to do – make a parody! Our students have been working for months now to organize their brand new parody called “Build a Robot” (to the tune of “Eye of the Tiger”). The parody embodies what it means to be on a FIRST robotics team, and our students had a lot of fun making it!

Everything you see and hear in the video is completely student made – they wrote the lyrics, recorded the vocals, and shot and edited the video. We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it!

*Update* The Allendale Robotics parody received an Honorable Mention when being judged in the competition by FIRST headquarters.
