Zach Bryan Slides In Sample Of Viral Indy 500 Fan Into “Overtime” & It’s Incredible

One of the most subtle and potentially most hilarious samples of all.

Zach Bryan’s self-titled album has taken the nation by storm, and rightfully so; it is filled with some incredible tracks.

A song that fans have been loving off the album is “Overtime,” and while the track is serious, Zach Bryan sneakily puts in a sample from an old viral clip of a drunk attendee from the Indy 500.

The first introduction guitar riff is the first chords of the National Anthem, and faintly in the background, you can hear part of the clip where the man is yelling:

“They’re going real fast and real left, son. They’re goin’ fast and left. F*ck yeah!”

While the intro, including this bit, is hilarious and shows that Bryan enjoys the same viral clips we all do, it has nothing to do with the rest of the tune.

The lyrics address the hard-hitting topic of resistance and longing for connection and love. He tells the story of family struggles, trying to make something out of himself regardless of what others have said, and wanting a partner to share that journey with.

“No matter who you know, no matter what you do
I’ll become what I deserve when it’s all through
And you’ll be there asking yourself why
So hold on tight
‘Cause I’ll be working overtime
They told me that I couldn’t, and I shouldn’t even try
Ever since I was child, been workin’ for a while, overtime.”

If you have listened through the track and missed this sample, I highly recommend going back to give it a listen. It will give you a grin before the seriousness of the lyrics sets in:

@dillon.weldon REAL FAST. REAL LEFT. #zachbryan #funny #countrymusic #foryou #fyp ♬ Overtime – Zach Bryan

And while you’re here, give the whole track a listen.
