'I Love You Denard' gets music video just ahead of Michigan-Alabama game

By Bob Needham

Pat Stansik, the rising comedian from Ann Arbor who's found considerable success online, has just released a music video for his song "I Love You Denard."

Stansik released the audio for the song, a tribute to University of Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson, on YouTube in February, but it's been missing a full-blown video—until now.

The well-produced video combines images of Stansik lip-synching the song with funny scenes expressing his bromantic crush on the star QB—all just in time for the season-opening game on Saturday against Alabama.

Watch the video below (and look for a cameo from U-M basketball star Zack Novak) , and here you can check out past coverage of Stansik's work—including his viral hit "Bros vs. Hipsters."

Great fun! I'm sure that all the Michigan alumni who no longer live here will get a kick out of the landmarks chosen for background to this humorous tribute to Denard Robinson. I'll certainly be forwarding the link to my Michigan grad daughter who lives in California. She grew up here and was even photographed atop The Rock by the Ann Arbor News once. She's always nostalgic for Ann Arbor (leaving me to deal with The Reality of Ann Arbor, LOL!). Whatever: Michigan Football and its long list of great personalities now includes Denard Robinson. Go Blue! Viva Michigan! Viva Ann Arbor!

This is wrong on so many levels--very funny -- but oh so wrong...

Funny song, only one line I gotta bring up. "No d coordinator seems to have an answer" Check the game film vs MSU, pretty sure Narduzzi and company have it figured out!

Late hits?

Does anybody else think UM fans are sort of socially awkward dorks?

I mean, who writes a love song to a football player? I write love songs to women.

No, UM fans are intellectual. The only time they're socially awkward is at tractor pulls and in Columbus.

Is that the same "ND guy" or did they just find someone who looked similar?
