We just received the video for Currier this year in which they said:
“Tired of self-promoting, self-conscious housing day videos, and especially housing day music videos? Check out one intrepid Currierite’s ultimate housing day video, featuring terrible editing, sparkles, muzak, retarded reporting and an ear-bleeding cover of Free Bird. Amidst all the terrible housing day videos being made comes a video that embraces the terrible.”
Was it everything you hoped for?
Note: This is not the “official” HoCo video, but rather one submitted on behalf of some Currier students to The Voice
The Immediate Gratification Players (IGP), an on-campus improv troupe, knock this one out of the park. The 2011 Harvard Foundation’s Cultural Rhythms Artist of the Year (better known as Shakira) gets a lotta love and a little lesson in psychosemantics.
Oh and yeah, we definitely saw you get that celebrity hug, Ben Smith ’12. Get it, get it.
The video below, entitled Pussy Breath, features a few of our Harvard friends in what some are calling a “nasty” rap video. It’s got nothing on Nelly’s Tip Drill, though quite a bit less sex-positive than H-Bomb.
Well there you have it. We’re almost speechless. While deep down we want to like this, we want to laugh, we want to get it. But… we also can’t help but fight the general nausea produced by watching this. Looks like we’re all going to avoid plain yogurt in the dining hall for a while.
Mad props to our hip New York Harvard gals for making it to video vixen status before graduation. See, this way it’s ironic. Ten years from now, maybe not.
