The rally took place on Friday, January, 20th in the large gym. It started with the band playing “California Girls” as people entered to take their seats and quickly after that moved into the video of the rally rules. The main three rules being: seniors exit first, no talking, and no negative cheering or otherwise the rally would be shut down.
Up next came a video introducing the rally hosts as a “four man wolf pack” in reference to the movie, The Hangover. The four rally hosts were Chris Henrriquez, Henry Torres, Jamin Chalberg, and Noah Him. Then as the video ended, three of the four hosts were seen lying on the rally floor, waking up to realize that Noah was missing.
This led to ASB’s “green man group” dance, they had their faces entirely painted green, with green swim caps, and all black clothing, as they danced to a series of songs.
Afterwards it back to the rally hosts still looking for Noah, they had found some pictures, and decided to go to Caesar’s Palace to look for him.
Then the winter sports were introduced. They introduced girls/boys soccer, girls/ boys basketball, and boys/girls water polo.
Freshmen Jayson Baker spoke out, “they didn’t even introduce wrestling as a winter sport.”
However, later on the CMHS school loop page, ASB posted an announcement saying, “ASB says "I'm Sorry" to Coach Serio and the Wrestling Program! Please join us in the Spring Rally!”
Next, the winter sport captains got to participate in a game called “let’s make Cesar dressing.” They had to create a toga made out of toilet paper. The one with the most cheers won, which were the boys basketball captains, Jordan Walden and Saaeed Eli-Assadi.
Still, the hosts continued to look for Noah, and they decide to look for him at a dance club.
This introduced Costa Mesa High School’s dance club with their first performance at a rally. Then right afterwards Mesa’s cheerleaders performed.
Following cheer the hosts announced that someone had seen Noah and they said he had said something about sharks. So the hosts journeyed to Mandalay Bay and then they found his phone in the shark tank.
Transitioning into the second and final game, one captain from each team was picked to dunk their heads into water and grab the “phone” with their teeth (this was technically bobbing for apples with the phones as tennis balls).
Soon after, the rally came to an end. The senior exited as the band played them off with songs like “Viva Las Vegas” and “Pretty Fly for a White Guy”.
In regards to how much time ASB put into the rally, coordinator Ciara Rudas said, “about 20 hours!”
Senior Richard Carmody, thought “it was terrible, it takes the same amount of time as tutorial, but I’d rather be at tutorial because I can actually get stuff done.”
Pastor Daniel Orduña said “I thought the green people were awesome, and the videos were impressive."
