VIDEO: Pittsburgh Pirates' 'You Gotta Believe' Receives Update For 2012

With the Pirates entering the summer in contention for first place in the N.L. Central, "Bucco Fever" is once again beginning to take hold of Pittsburgh. One YouTube video that is sure to get any Pirates fan wound up is one based on the old theme song "You Gotta Believe". It can be viewed after the jump.

The video, created by Kurk Ginkgrich, takes an old highlight video of the 1990 Pirates (begins at about 4:40) and synchs it up with modern highlights of the 2012 squad. Ginkgrich made a version for the 2011 team during their run to the top of the division that was also a viral hit.

Cheers to Ginkgrich on another well-done video and, of course, the singer's ridiculously awesome mullet.
