“I think the setup is: ‘Laugh at Lioness While Lioness Frailly Tries to do This Physical Task'”
Trill Feinstein ’13 is bored (well, you can’t be a rap sensation 24/7), so he’s speed-editing outtakes from Wes Pacific (you know, that web series he created?) and popping them out like chickens. Think of it like Wes Pacific’s special features. These are the deleted scenes. And they’re about to make your Wessickness much, much worse.
In the first segment, Feinstein treks into Lionessrise, otherwise known as LoRise A5, and challenges challenges the burly, well-toned fitness freaks of Lioness to a chin-up contest. “We’re basically proving that we are all very unathletic, skinny people,” observes percussive demon John Snyder ’12, who went on to win seven Oscars for his performance. The clip features an introduction by Future Islands shortly before their April performance with Cloud Nothings; according to Feinstein, a full interview is forthcoming, which is pretty awesome news.
There’s also footage of Feinstein himself taking the herculean chin-up challenge. Skip ahead to 3:37 if that’s all you care about. Soundtrack by LA Gears (Sky Stallbaumer ’12), whose loop-based laptop music was unexpectedly featured in a video of President Roth interviewing Julia Louis-Dreyfus P ’14 last semester.
In the second segment, “10 Roses,” Zak Malik ’14 treks around campus on a beautiful day, handing out ten roses to “ten beautiful ladies,” including a student showing her aunt around WestCo, to whom Malik declares, “I don’t see why we’re not in bed right now.” (The student, not the aunt.) It’s pretty much what it sounds like. Soundtracked by that freaking awesome Le1f track that you definitely should have heard by now.
