Oklahoma State blog Pistols Firing unearthed a couple of videos of Dez Bryant racing Bullet‚ÄĒOklahoma State‚Äôs mascot horse‚ÄĒin Boone Pickens Stadium.

Though the videos are clearly from Bryant‚Äôs time at Oklahoma State, they were only uploaded to YouTube by Pistols Firing today. In August 2009‚ÄĒthe beginning of Bryant‚Äôs junior and final season‚ÄĒO‚ÄôColly.com wrote about a new pregame song commissioned from associate athletic director Dave Martin‚Äôs son, John Martin, called ‚ÄúCowboys Forever.‚ÄĚ O‚ÄôColly.com refers to Martin‚Äôs website, where he wrote (no longer available) about shooting video during Oklahoma State‚Äôs summer practices, and seeing Bryant race Bullet:

For the video, director Taylor Bolding and I were given full access to the players and their summer workout sessions. We wanted to get a ‚Äėbehind the scenes‚Äô perspective of the Cowboys in training as they prepared for the season. Working with the players was a lot of fun throughout the project, but the highlight for me was watching Dez Bryant race Bullet inside Boone Pickens Stadium!

But as we wrote about at the time, nobody liked ‚ÄúCowboys Forever,‚ÄĚ and it was quickly scrapped. The song isn‚Äôt currently featured on Martin‚Äôs website or YouTube account; I could only find this copy on YouTube, with a video that clearly isn‚Äôt from the footage Martin and Bolding shot:

It doesn‚Äôt seem like the music video for ‚ÄúCowboys Forever‚ÄĚ was ever completed, or if it was, it wasn‚Äôt shown publicly, which is really too bad. It means we don‚Äôt get to see higher quality footage of Dez Bryant racing a horse, and perhaps more importantly, we don‚Äôt get to see the surely campy music video that accompanies lyrics such as, ‚ÄúThe prairie wind touches our skin, another maverick morning begins.‚ÄĚ
