Here’s an instructional video from University of Alabama freshman Jack Blakenship teaching you how to do “The Face.”
Blakenship believes it’s important to share his five-step process in hopes that others will practice so that they too can deliver their own personalized version of “The Face.”
Blakenship has become a media sensation after he was photographed doing “The Face” while holding up an oversized cardboard cutout of his face during the Alabama vs. Florida basketball game last Tuesday. He held up “The Face” to distract the Gators.
It didn’t work. Florida won 61-52. But who cares, we’re all talking about “The Face.”
“I can’t really help it,” Blankenship told The Birmingham News. “It’s just a genetic strength I have.”
Blakenship said “The Face” isn’t a new creation. He’s been developing it since he was 13 years old.
He said that the first time he did “The Face” at a sporting event was when he was in the 10th grade. He was in Tampa Bay to see the Rays play the New York Yankees.
So now you know that “The Face” can be used at any sporting event — not just a college basketball game.
The possibilities are endless.
