    @Anonymous Its 5AM, I’m still working on this paper, but watching this video made me smile in a stupendous way and my spirit lift a few inches off the ground. Amazing work. THANK YOU Pat Blute and everyone involved for making this week all the more tolerable. From Kasia’s lovely singing to Aki’s split screen charm to Dean Shollenberger’s impeccable delivery, this was just excellent.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous I realize this was posted a couple days ago, but I didn’t think it worthwhile to watch it until I got to this point trying to completely reorganize a 10-page paper when I should be studying for the two back-to-back information-heavy exams I have tomorrow, and I have to say it seriously made me feel a lot better and put a little Columbia pride into this direst of finals weeks. Thanks guys!

    1. Anonymous says:

      @Anonymous Exactly how I feel. I’m writing a 12-er right now and I have two finals tomorrow I haven’t studied for (oops). But this made me smile and made me happy to be at Columbia. We need more school spirit like this!

  • Amirah Sequeira is a goddess! says:

    @Amirah Sequeira is a goddess! Lyrics + 3:10-3:11 = ‘nough said.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous I have two finals today and I woke up with this song stuck in my head. However, instead of making me want to rip my own ears off in a fit of rage, it just keeps making me happy and optimistic about my finals. So thanks.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous This was an awesome video. References were right on.

    But there were definitely some issues with the vocals… I’ve heard Uptown Vocal before and they sound good, so this is no insult to them. But maybe it would’ve helped to do another take or something… especially on the choruses with the male vocalists.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Anonymous KE$HO!

    @Dude... I’d see KeSho over Seacrest any day.
