Mini-documentaries are all the rage these days, and for good reason. Whether they are about the insane 1989 Hershel Walker trade or a Massachusetts indie rock trio’s quest to make a rad-as-fook EP, they often give us a personal glimpse inside some much larger machinations at play.
We’ll assume you already know everything there is about the Minnesota Vikings ill-fated acquisition of the All-Pro running back.

And no draft picks were harmed in the making of this video. Preview it below EP below, and save a few minutes of your day to get to know Drab a little better.
