A Star Is Born – Kliff Kingsbury and Josh Rosen: A Cardinals parody
The love story told in the Oscar-nominated film “A Star Is Born” isn’t so unlike a love story yet to be written here in the desert.
OK, so maybe there’s not a lot of threads to connect Bradley Cooper’s movie with the Arizona Cardinals — not yet anyway.
But with the Oscars coming this Sunday and the film expected to take home some hardware after being nominated for a handful of honors, 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s Jarrett Carlen and Luke Lapinski decided to dazzle us with a rendition of the movie’s hit song, “Shallow.”
Playing Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen and coach Kliff Kingsbury, respectively, it’s likewise about a connection between two passionate humans and the discovery of talent.
From the first lyrics (“Tell me something, Josh. Are you unhappy after every loss?”) to the emotional climax (“When the games are played, using the Air Raid, no one can stop us now”), Cardinals fans will surely feel the emotion of this parody.
