Sportsfan - Great Alex Smith / 49ers video

Aug 6, 2012 at 9:48 PM--


A fantastic 49ers video has been making its way around the internet. Earlier, we shared it with fans on our Facebook page. For those of you that have not seen it yet, it is worth a watch.

The creator of the video, who is a student at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and used this video in an editing class, describes the video like this:

In 2010, 70,000 fans tried to boo Alex Smith off the field. His story matters, because most people have experienced a moment in life where it feels like the world is boo-ing them and wants to see them fail.

The video is over 26 minutes long, but is very well done and worth it if you are a 49ers fan and want to relive a great season or are a fan of Alex Smith.
