Watch Hook ‘Em nail the #UNameItChallenge before Texas vs. TCU

Posted November 25th, 2016


Your favorite dancing mascot is back.

Hook ‘Em posted a video of the #UNameItChallenge on Twitter right before Thanksgiving, showing the mascot dancing on the steps of Gregory Gym.

The #UNameItChallenge is a tale as old as time — kind of. Legendary gospel singer Shirley Caesar’s song “Hold My Mule” was remixed by DJ Suede The Remix God, focusing on the line when Caesar sings about “beans, greens, potatoes, tomatoes”  and other foods. It’s perfect for Thanksgiving week, so heat up some leftovers and check out Hook ‘Em’s moves.

It’s not the first time we’ve been treated to the mascot’s exceptional dance skills. Hook ‘Em also displayed his killer moves to “JuJu on Dat Beat” right before the Texas-OU rivalry game in October.
