Tween Spelling Bee Contestants Running to the Ultimate Warrior Theme

Via Deadspin

A tradition among kids who get selected as Scripps National Spelling Bee Semifinalists is that they run to the stage like they just heard their parents brought home a puppy. And why not? Placing well in THE spelling bee this country has to offer is on the same level as being a Heisman Trophy finalist is for college age students. An entrepreneurial soul, Tim Burke, to be exact, set a b-roll of those kids running to the stage to the Ultimate Warrior's theme song. The only thing missing is Jesse "the Body" Ventura remarking about how those kids are wasting their energy running to the stage, while the kids who calmly walk there won't get blown up during the bee.
