Ashton Eaton, Galen Rupp part of Nike Oregon Animal House tribute (video)

1 Comment

Some of the University of Oregon’s greatest athletes gathered for a Nike ad that paid homage to “Animal House,” a music video of sorts to “Shout.”

The cast mostly included football players — such as Oregon quarterbacks Dan Fouts, Joey Harrington, Dennis Dixon and Marcus Mariota — but it wouldn’t be complete without track and field stars.

Olympic decathlon champion Ashton Eaton, Olympic 10,000m silver medalist Galen Rupp and U.S. 100m champion English Gardner were part of the toga party.

Eaton and Rupp are noted Oregon football fans. Eaton competed against the Oregon Ducks mascot in a hurdles race on College GameDay two years ago. Rupp has been known to tailgate for Oregon games with World Championships medalists.
