Rockville Children Write, Star In Ravens Super Bowl Video
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC)– A group of Montgomery County kids calling themselves the Rockville Raven Maniacs have created a 4-minute music video to showcase their support for the Super Bowl-bound team.
Sung to the tune of the 2009 Ke$ha hit “TiK ToK,” the song is titled “Ravens Tick Tock (Ravens Rock).” The friends behind the lyrics are 9-year-old Lexy Silverstein and 11-year-old Claire De Meo, who got inspired after the team beat the New England Patriots and secured a spot in the Super Bowl on Jan. 20.
They recorded a YouTube video to accompany the song with the help of some grown-ups and neighbors, hoping that Ray Lewis would see it and get hyped up for the Feb. 3 game.
“We love Ray Lewis,” the girls said in perfect unison Thursday.
“We want him to win the Super Bowl so he can have a memorable last year,” Claire said of the veteran Baltimore linebacker who announced that he will retire after this season.
Another goal, according to Claire: “We really want to go to the Super Bowl and we want to sing it with Beyonce and Ke$ha.” While Ke$ha isn’t scheduled to perform at the halftime show, they think she should be there since they used her song as a basis for their own.
The girls are enjoying an unintended result of the video release, as well, in the form of being asked for autographs from their classmates.
“Some people are asking if they can be in our next video,” Lexy said.
If the Ravens win, they say they’ll make a sequel.
