10 greatest Army-Navy spirit videos

James Barber

Every year, Army cadets and Navy midshipmen spend hours or weeks making spirit videos to taunt the opponent during the week before the annual Army-Navy game.

Once the game is over, most of us never think about them again. This year, we decided to go back and resurface some of the finest spirit videos from the last decade. No matter which side you're on, these videos feature some sick burns.


1. Army: Lead From the Front (2017)

This is more like a short film than a spirit video. It's a heist movie with Bill the Goat substituted for a vault full of money.

2. Navy: Star Wars (2015)

Rescue fantasies seem to be a recurring theme in Navy videos. This time, midshipmen are sent on a mission to rescue Princess Leia from the West Point Death Star.

3. Army: Alexis (2018)

How do you get a squid to run? Computer hacking seems to be the key.

4. Navy: Mission Bond (2017)

Who knew there was a Midshipman James Bond? Bond rescues Navy Pride with the aid of the USNA Parachute Team.

5. Army: Sing Second (2017)

Who says a spirit video has to be funny? West Point cadets show their spirit with an inspiring musical performance.

6. Navy: We Give a Ship (2014)

Stuck for an idea? You can always fall back on your favorite joke from second grade: Ship sounds like another word that'll get you sent to the principal, so use it freely!

7. Army: Operation Calamari (2017)

West Point cadets break in at Annapolis and then demonstrate how easy it can be to pass as a sailor.

8. Navy: Game for the Real Players (2012)

Back when Navy was overwhelming Army every year, rapper Baasik's spirit video taunted cadets over their losing streak.

9. Army: Child's Play (2016)

Kids play soldier, not sailors. It's that simple.

10. Navy: Look at Me Now (2013)

The rhymes are savage. Does the fact that this middie needs closed captioning detract from his game?
