Vanderbilt Football created a hilarious parody sorority recruiting video. Very well done, imhe.
Vanderbilt Football Parody Sorority Recruiting Video
I'm far removed from my youth, but is this a common marketing tool used by the greek system these days?
but having seen it, now that Vandy video is much funnier. I had no idea sororities made cheezy recruiting videos like that
Welp, happy trails Tyler Shuck
But looking for a nanny
Can your wife recommend one of sisters?
The worst thing I have ever seen. Or maybe the best. Can't decide
It can be both
dress, or wearing the Big Al jersey?
... this is helpful. Can't tell which one is the original and which is the spoof now.
Was she in this one? Somehow, I don't quite remember the girls in sororities at Michigan being quite the same, but that's been a long time ago.
My son has been dating a cheerleader at his high school who is planning on Alabama. And having seen many of her pictures, and pics of her friends, there's a lot of this stuff going on. Of course, that's a small sample set. I don't really know how many girls are into blowing air kisses and taking pics with their friends while laying on the grass and taking pics in bikinis jumping off of piers, etc. But yeah, I've seen a lot of that. Which makes the Vanderbilt video all the funnier.
The all white clothes, combined with almost all blondes, really drives it home.
It doesn't look very diverse in many ways . . . weight and size, style of dress, etc.
However, this cuts different ways. There are nine historically black fraternities and sororities. Certainly, they were undoubtedly founded as social organizations, at historically black colleges, because establishment of chapters of other fraternities and sororities on those campuses would never have happened in a million years. Racism, pure and simple.
There are challenges. When do individuals personally desire to be with others who are like them? When are individuals excluded, in both subtle and overt ways, because they don't match the parameters of another group?
I am sure that there are many individuals who would look at a sorority like this, and despise it. Never in a million years would they want to be part of it. Others would very much want to join, but would be excluded.
Sometimes, it is hard to know how much a group looks the way it looks not because of overt discrimination, but because it isn't an attractive group to those who don't fit into the majority. For instance, I have read recently that Michigan is still struggling, as a university, to increase diversity. At least on paper, this isn't what Michigan wants. They want more diversity, and are failing to achieve it.
They accept both kinds of people, white and suntanned.
....not true, plenty women of color in the video - brunettes.
That really seemed more like a remake of Best Little Whorehouse in Texas ad, except, you know, in Alabama.
but I'm probably not the target market.
Wait, now I'm confused, which video was the parody again?
So that's where the white women at...
A video full of nothing but hot college girls . . . and I could not stand to watch it for even a full minute.
The football stereotypes video was great, too.
I live in Nashville, but have yet to go to a game there, I think that needs to change this year.
The parody was good, for about a minute, but the whole thing was, IMO, too long.
The sorority "revenge" spoof of college football recruiting should be good, if they can keep it short and simple.
Excellent parody, they have the format nailed. And I applaud the willigness to make themselves the butts (heh) of the joke as well.
Well done. There is now one SEC team I wont actively wish a pox upon. For now
They are clearly the black sheep of the SEC family with thier academic standards and all.
as an alumnus, I salute their good humor.
I was hoping they would also wear their man-kinis.
They obviously had a blast making the video!
