Maryland basketball parodied Adele’s “Hello” in a love letter to Melo Trimble, and it worked on just about every level.
MELO MONDAY! He may not have won any #GRAMMYs last night, but he IS in the running for the Naismith Trophy and Wooden Award! #StayMelo Melo Mixtape (Track One) performed by Jami Erin.Posted by Maryland Basketball on Monday, February 13, 2017
The video, with Trimble-inspired lyrics from a Maryland alumnae, walks fans perfectly through some of the junior’s most famous moments as a Terp.
Walk-on Andrew Terrell’s been the star of Maryland’s previous attempts at viral videos, and he nails the introduction.
The rest of the video hits the right balance between fun and heartfelt. Trimble’s meant a lot to the fans, coaches and teammates at Maryland, and whether he’s coming back for his senior year, this serves as another reminder that everyone should appreciate him while he’s still here.
They got a perfect shot of radio broadcaster Johnny Holiday saying “Melo from the outsiiiiiide,” and matched that up with his game-winning three against Wisconsin from last year.
“Tell them you’re sorry for the ankles you broke.”
“And we told you we love you for everything that you’ve done, but we’re not finished. Let’s go make another run.”
The Turgeonites popularized “Melo from the other side,” with this sign during Maryland’s 100-65 win over Ohio State last season.
Fans will certainly empathize with the Turgeonites’ wish for Trimble to stay as Maryland’s point guard “for eternity”. He’ll have to decide again this May whether or not he’ll leave for the NBA, and judging by this video, fans will be begging him to stay.
