Kansas State unleashes purple smoke monster on Kansas City before Saturday's Iowa State game

Kansas State apparently has the power to summon the smoke monster from Lost, and the Wildcats have unleashed it on Kansas City in anticipation of tomorrow morning's Farmageddon with Iowa State. This would be an impressive feat if K-State wasn't making the smoke monster's exit from the island look pitifully harmless.

The video (watch it after the jump) is the latest gawd-awful promotional work from the university with a fetish for trains, Ozzy Osbourne and Joe Satriani's guitar work (more on that after the jump, too).


And you were disappointed with the ending of Lost? But it's not like this is the worst video in K-State history. Oh, no.

What's up with this train fetish? I mean, two videos?


Just because you use Ozzy's "Crazy Train" doesn't mean you have to make crappy train animations. And there's still this bit of awful.


I thought this was a cheap knock-off of a Satriani song. Nope. It's just good ol' shitty Joe Satrani himself.

Those are just the ones you can embed from YouTube. There are equally embarrassing examples -- Willie the Wildcat chasing down an arsonist from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, Willie playing soldier and a homicidal Willie trying to run over Huskers with a mini combine -- that K-State doesn't want the rest of the nation seeing. Still, the videos aren't quite as embarrassing as having the distinction as one of the nation's 25 most desirable large public

universities taken away because the university misreported admission rates (98 percent of those who apply get in).
