Dear any fan of PSU, I challenge you to defend the following video in any way. This is right up there with the ND tailgate video from a few years ago...
I did not make this headline up
It should be used by the Pennsylvania Dept of Public Health as a PSA for prevention of STDs.
Not too sure about we are but I AM angry I watched that video. Good find, sad showing.
It won't be a party for them on the night of October 30th.
The revolution will be televised.
All I can do is shake my head.....
..shaking your head like, yeah?
What the hell is the deal with the confederate flag?!
The game was a "White Out"? Seriously, Penn State is the whitest college ever.
You didn't know that Pennsylvania was part of the confederacy.... oh wait.
I once took back roads from Cooperstown, NY cutting over the the I-90 split in Eastern NY. Whole side of a barn was painted to be the Confederate war flag. For half a second I thought my speedometer was wrong and that I had driven 1,000 miles in less than an hour.
As a resident and voter of the state of Pennsylvania (but student at Michigan), I am here to tell you that we have Pittsburgh on the west, Philly on the east, and the state of Alabama resides in the middle of the state. I'm looking for a good article where Carville says it but can't find a good source. If you just google Alabama in the Middle though, you should get a bunch of links.
...for Flight of the Conchords reference.
it's a Pennsylvanian Aristocratic wedding. You can clearly see the bride and groom dancing together to consummate their union for half the video (the groom is wearing a ceremonial backpack).
dancing to black music underneath a Confederate flag, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be noticing. (It IS a WHITE out, no?) Is the lyric out-of-their-minds scary, or? I note a guy with a Michigan shirt on the car, right? I think I need more clues.
I'm soooo glad I'm not the only one who considers Miley Cyrus's music to be 'black music'
How is Miley Cyrus "black music"?
because the Jay-Z song was on...I thought it made total sense.....
So we're vicariously listening to black music through Miley's unparalleled ballad-writing? Got it!
see below. Know much of anything about music?
But the Brittney song was on too...
I cannot help you. But white kids have been dancing to lifted black beats--starting before Elvis--for generations (not wearing Dolce and Gabbana hats, I will grant you).
I think this tune derives a lot of its flavor from dancehall ballads, since you can hear a million like it on any minibus on any island in the Caribbean. We go look we'll probably find some black songwriter sold it to Cyrus (like most of Madonna's tunes. . .)
I'm not saying these kids are racist, btw. In fact, I like the song and the tune--but I've always been one to defend a good pop tune.
At least you helped me understand why the poster thinks it's lame. If I were a college kid I'm sure I'd deride Miley Cyrus, too.
Used to sell WalMart clothes--yikes:
They weren't "used" for anything, they wrote the songs and got paid for them. Dr. Luke in particular has a nice laundry list of awful pop songs to his name as writer or producer. From his Wikipedia article:
He has collaborated with songwriter/producer Max Martin and has co-written and produced/co-produced the No. 1 singles "Since U Been Gone" and "My Life Would Suck Without You" by Kelly Clarkson, "Girlfriend" by Avril Lavigne, "I Kissed a Girl" by Katy Perry, "Right Round" by Flo Rida, and "Tik Tok" by Ke$ha.
Nobody forced him to work on those songs.
Wait, wait, wait...Miley Cyrus doesn't write her own music? And you're telling me she SELLS WALMART CLOTHES WITH HER SONGS?!
See, because I thought she was a bastion of lyricism and anti-corporate scruples.
penned the song.
That's what I get for trying too hard to be witty.
on the Elvis rather than the Pat Boone side of things.
Drunk people + song everyone has heard a million times = drunk people singing that song.
I don't think it's a huge deal. If it would have been NSYNC or something, I think it would have been funny.
Although, I will say this. Why that song was played in the first place is the question. Not nearly a good enough girl:guy ratio to justify even playing that song.
They were desperately clinging to the few remaining females. Surprisingly, said females were not wooed by these studs' awesome dance moves. So they went for the "I will pretend to like effeminate things" angle. Chicks dig that stuff.
The best part is the guy with the
Iowa shirt. Iowa took their place in a BCS game with that domination.
I had to stop it once they started jumping and singing it. That is too much for someone to take on a Saturday.
... i have never liked PSU, mostly because everyone who comes out sucks in the NFL, and the bears have had the pleasure of drafting 3 PSU players in the first round in the last 10-15 years.
It just looks like a bunch of kids having fun with shitty music to me.
Yeah, as some other people have already said, I don't really get what the OP is getting at. The same type of thing happens on State Street every football Saturday, and I'm willing to bet it's happened with the same exact song even. Now, if he was talking about the confederate flag, yeah, I don't really get that...
I have to disagree. That was pretty damned fruity. Especially that dude in the front of the camera..
This happens in Ann Arbor all the time, sometimes with even more embarrassing songs.
Although I'd like to think we're better dancers than they are, and we don't have confederate flags.
We definitely have confederate flags. Not many, but we do have them
i dont get it...looks like rick's to me (sans confederate flag)
It looks kind of ridiculous but the only real problem with that scene is the confederate flag. Hard to get by that one.
IT'S FUNNY BC IT'S IRONIC! MILEY CYRUS AT A FOOTBALL GAME! LULZ
That's all I can say.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but if you walked by a fratty pregame at Michigan this season you probably heard Miley at least 1-5 times, and most likely being danced to much more enthusiastically I might add.
"I'm looking for a good article where Carville says it but can't find a good source. If you just google Alabama in the Middle though, you should get a bunch of links."
Put "Hillary" and "primary" in your search and it will help. I remember hearing Ed Rendell use the line on Chris Matthews show during the primaries.
Regarding the video, I can't dance. I've never been SO drunk that I have forgotten this.
Miley Cyrus is hot.
Yup sorry, replace Miley with Kelly Clarkson and you've got about 75% of the tailgates I've been at.
