Does Wesleyan need its own YouTube musical?

Middlebury is the latest college to receive attention for having a video paying homage to it on YouTube.  “MIDD KID” is a legitimate looking music video produced by Middlebury kids rapping about themselves and their college.  Unlike the “Why I choose Yale” video, though, it’s not intended to attract pre-frosh.  The video was completely student initiated and had no relation to the Middlebury admissions office.  In fact, Middlebury neither gave the students permission or stopped them from producing the video, saying they would have no official comment.  Watching the video clearly shows why.  The lyrics go along the lines of:

I’m a Midd Kid
I roll my jeans up high
With my Teva strap tight and my flannel so fly.

If the comments on the video are any indication, they’re getting compliments from peers at other colleges too.  So any guess on how long until we have a new video lionizing Wesleyan and its noble aspects?  Not to say that we don’t already have a significant YouTube presence, though.

    you all are delusional. midd kid is amazing. i love party on fountain, but midd kid is hilarious. and has a wider audience than just people who go to middlebury (as opposed to party on fountain, which can really only be appreciated by wes students)

    @11: fuck “quality,” and who gives a crap about whether or not you think wes girls are “fine”

    Give me a fucking break, Party On Fountain is fucking awful and doesn’t even remotely compare in terms of production quality and catchiness to this mIddkid shit. Also the video sucks and the girl in it is busted, while there are some pretty fine girls in the middkid video. case closed.

    party on fountain is supposed to be wes specific. and it was made before any of these other music videos were made so you can give some credit to them.

    midd kidd is fantastic to college kids everywhere and party on fountain makes me so proud of being from wes

    are you serious? Party on fountain is a bland song and the video is terrible production quality compared to the Midd Kid video. You guys make Wesleyan look so bad if you are seriously claiming that party on fountain is better. Just look at the views on youtube…plus party on fountain is wesleyan specific…midd kid is universal to colleges. give credit where credit is due

    chorus sucks, but the video is well made and its good they can laugh at themselves. but seriously, party on fountain is so much better. if we really want a “youtube musical” then just hype that shit.
