Just two hours before it debuted at today's spring spirit assembly, the new student-created "All About That Pride" video won the first-place award for music videos at the annual CTEC Video Festival, sponsored by the Chicagoland Television Educators Council.

A takeoff on Meghan Trainor’s “All about that Bass” video, the OPRF version is a mash-up of iconic videos recreated by students, all set to the tune of Trainor’s song but with Huskie-centric lyrics. The video is the brainchild of OPRF film students Samantha Phelan and Ellie VanderWell, who wrote the lyrics and co-produced the video, with coaching by OPRF film and TV teacher John Condne. 

“All About That Pride”
Lyrics by Ellie Vanderwell and Samantha Phelan

Because you know it’s all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Go, Huskies
It’s all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Go Huskies
It’s all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Go Huskies
It’s all about that pride
‘Bout that pride

Yeah, it’s pretty clear
That we’re the top school
We got the best athletes 
Like we’re supposed to do
And we got those dance moves that other schools crave
We’re washing Hinsdale out just like a tidal wave

I see the football team, they got that quick kick
We know they’re blockin’ plays - LT you smell like s*!t
If you got those paws, paws, you better raise ‘em up
‘Cause every inch of school is perfect
From the bottom to the top

Yeah, my counselor, she told me stay focused on all your grades
She says Bs are alright but you’re better off getting As
[Not failin’, failin’]
[Not failin’, failin’]

You know Oak Park don’t need nobody tellin’ us what to wear
Now tell me Fenwick, do uniforms go to your underwear

Because you know
It’s all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Go Huskies
It’s all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Go Huskies
It’s all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Go Huskies
It’s all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Hey!

I’m bringing Huskies back
Y’all go ahead and tell them Friars that
Naw, I’m just playing. I know y’all think you’re great
But I’m here to tell ya
Every inch of school is perfect from the bottom to the top

Mr. Braverman, I know you want us to wear IDs
But I warned that some will and others do as they please
Don’t even think about messin’ with my own Huskie crew
[They ugly, ugly]
[They ugly, ugly]
We’ll outshine all your colors by wearing our orange and blue

Because you know
It’s all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Go Huskies
It’s all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Go Huskies
It’s all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Go Huskies
It’s all about that pride
‘Bout that pride

Freshman picture lookin’ like a kid to me
This industry is endlessly
It’s breakin’ me
Look what OP did to me
Too basic
Information just racin’
Time for summer vacation
Needin’ a celebration

Freshman on the one hand
I stand where the others stand to the mother land

On the end graduation on the other hand make a man

I understand liberation, imitation
People in OP, they either yeet or they bop

‘Cause every inch of school is perfect
From the bottom to the top

You know my counselor, told me looks like the end of four years
She says does this mean that you done with the Huskie cheer
I say counselor take us out of school if you must
But you know you’ll never take the Huskie out of us

Because you know
I’m all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Ima Huskie
I’m all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Ima Huskie
I’m all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
Ima Huskie
I’m all about that pride
‘Bout that pride
‘Bout that pride, ‘bout that pride
Hey, Hey, ooh
You know you like this pride
