This year the NFL Draft is being held in Chicago, rather than its usual home, New York, which means Draft watchers will likely miss out on a hallowed tradition: Jets fans booing the hell out of whatever player their team selects.

Credit where it's due: these guys do a pretty great job, both with the Noo Yawk accents and with the constantly miserable and disappointed behavior that defines a Jet fan on Draft Day. They also manage to get in some more upbeat moments, like when they ask some businessman-type what his favorite song is. "Benny and the ...," is the lead-in, and then everyone whoops and cheers at the mention of "Jets."
