Notre Dame, we have a problem!
Why can't I stop watching this video?
Take away the bad lyrics, pathetic dancing and the poor attempt of passing off a nobody singer/rapper/douchebag it's actually a great video.
The first time I watched the video today I thought it was going to be a parody of some kind. Then I realized this was legit. It says it right there in the video caption: "Faculty-student video produced by FTT faculty member Ted Mandell and Notre Dame students. Award-winning musician Freekbass brings the funk to Notre Dame. Come on, let's hear it, Irish fans!"
So I called a co-worker into my office and he noticed that it's easily the "whitest" pseudo hip-hop/rap video either of us had ever watched. Someone really needs to work on the diversity training (I have a few Gannett friends who can help).
I won't even get into the challenges presented by the lyrics (so how many times can we say "We are ND or We are Notre Dame?").
At a time when Notre Dame fans, and even first-year coach Brian Kelly, claim the Fighting Irish are above joining a conference, why does such a prestigious university have to stoop to such a low in the name of school spirit?
Notre Dame should be better than this. I guess now joining the Big Ten won't be the worst thing ND does this year.
