Arlington High sells you a yearbook, through a little intimidation

Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Remember the hit Liam Neeson movie Taken, and its recent sequel Taken 2? They became pretty big pop culture hits, especially with guys.

And also, it seems, with the yearbook staff from Arlington High School in Arlington, Neb., who created a parody of a famous scene from the movie Taken for their entry in Walsworth’s 2012 Video Contest.

Watch the video below, then vote for the “AHS Yearbook” video over at Walsworth’s Facebook page by giving it a Like. The video contest runs until Nov. 19, and winners will be selected by a committee of judges based on the following criteria: message and appropriateness to theme, creativity, entertainment value, viral nature as determined by the number of video Likes on Facebook and technical prowess.
