New Monsters University Viral Video Hits
Some sport-loving monsters get angry...

20 March 2013  |  Written by Ali Plumb  |  Source: Tumblr

March Madness is a singularly America phenomenon. Also known as NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship, it's a series of games that sees which of 68 college basketball teams are, you know, the best. Tying into 'The Big Dance' - as it's also also known - is this Monsters University clip, which pokes fun at the whole thing.

The text that accompanies the video reads thusly: "Monsters University student Davey Hork caught the MU basketball team’s reaction to being left off this year’s field. He’s got some other interesting things posted on his Grumblr."

The clip has arrived via Pixar's Tumblr page - hence the Grumblr gag - which is a treasure trove of Pixary goodness, with blooper reels, behind-the-scenes snaps and more. Some Instagram-style pics are also there, which we've assembled for you and placed below.

And as this is a prequel about Mike and Sulley's college years, why not have a go at Empire's Ultimate Younger Versions In Movies Picture Quiz here? Monsters University is out in the UK on July 12, 2013.

Funny as hell
As strange as it may sound, this has actually gotten me more excited for the movie. Let's hope it's this funny and well-animated. Well, there's pretty much no doubt about the latter, but I just hope it's really good. More
