There’s something missing in a video taken at a university’s recent basketball game. While the sounds of dribbling and squeaking sneakers are usually drowned out by the roar of the crowd, they’re all you hear in the first few minutes of this game. And no, nothing is wrong with your computer volume.
The video comes from Taylor University’s 17th annual “Silent Night” game, an event that takes place on the Friday before exams. Those in attendance remain silent until the 10th point is scored, when all of their pent-up sound can be released.
Watch the amazingly quiet fans erupt at the 10th point:
