It’s hard not to get a little nostalgic when Kellz slips into “I Believe I Can Fly” inspirational mode, as he does on this track he made for the World Cup. We were all so innocent then, when he seemed more emotionally sincere as opposed to sincerely emo. But even though this video is basically just a travelogue of his trip to Johannesburg, enjoying his intercontinental rockstardom, “Sign of a Victory” hearkens back to his motivational speaker steez, and we would probably start weeping a little bit if we weren’t already sweating from every pore (face sweat is a kind of tear, anyway). Besides, after Saturday’s USA defeat, it’s just a little more bittersweet.
