https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10157385591916229&id=92774416228&d=null&vh=e - The NFL's Baltimore Ravens pulled out all the stops for their 2020 schedule release announcement video. ZOMG. (It is also Price is Right related as...... it's featured in this vid, alongside with many other game shows!)

Changing the title because of clickbait.

This is fantastic. Whoever did this deserves an award.

All right, fess up, who here secretly works in Ravens marketing?

That was phenomenal. I can't imagine how many hours of editing that took to make.

The nods to obscure shows and B&W classics were a nice touch. You can tell whoever edited that wasn't just putting it together for a job; they really wanted to do the genre right and scoured through hours of footage to find those clips.

Password looks like any idiot could have made it up, but we have 14 of our people working on that show. There is a great complexity behind the screen. It requires great work to keep it simple."

That was beautiful. The big presence TPiR had in it was great, but when Where in the World is Carman Sandiego and Legends of the Hidden Temple showed up, the nostagia hit me hard. :-)   

Is there some inside joke the Ravens would have for such an oddball reveal or is it really a case of a marketing team having way too much time on their hands. I'm a casual Giants fan, so I wouldn't know too much about it.

Quite a few sports marketing have really stepped up their social media game the last few years--just a case of getting passionate people who want to make content that stands out.

For other schedule reveals, Denver Broncos did a Full House parody, the 49ers recreated the intro to Westworld,, and the Titans got a former Disney animator to direct and animate an original cartoon.

That was too damn amazing. I am absolutely floored.

(Since the video is at times hard to pause at exact images, I took a look and the video is also on YouTube where it can be played back at up to 1/4 its normal speed, for an easier ability to pause. A link for your convenience.)  :-)

Also, could someone help in identifying these screenshots? I cannot place them at all. Thanks.

#2 looks more like Tom Bergeron's Hollywood Squares (sometime in the first two years) to me.

The Ravens have game show connections already...
longtime coach Brian Billick was a contestant on Match Game PM in 1977; and their current Defensive Coordinator is Don Martindale - who goes by Wink.

After reviewing the video, I just realized...there isn't a single recognizable clip of Barker Price anywhere in the montage. Sure there are clips with Drew but nothing for Bob. Wonder why that is?

They lost all credibility by including "The Wall"
