Prangstgrup Makes Columbia Proud

Written by

prankedWhile Columbia has not gotten the best press in the New York Post lately, The Chronicle of Higher Education has nothing but good things to say about our school, or at least its pranks.  The Chronicle’s article on “The College Prank as Viral Video” includes not one but two pranks by Prangstgrüp, the latter of which it calls “arguably the best college prank on YouTube.”

Disappointingly, nobody around Columbia came up with anything big for April Fool’s Day (did they?),  although on Thursday KCST some kids from Jester, Fed, and other groups did trick 30-some people into watching people eat dinner before putting on legitimate shows the next two days and trick KCST into promoting it.

    Prangstgrup pranks aren't pranks. They are performances. There is no deception or foolery, it's just a public spectacle.

    would one even begin to survey the whole range of college pranks on youtube? and what makes "college pranks" particularly different from other generally goofy videos on youtube?

    The CUSJ needs to be wiped out. Creepy cult.

    to be fair, KCST was marginally involved in Ow Ow, since they let them use their reserved space in the Black Box
