@Anonymous welcome back, bois
@yes another #winning
@Wow This is really, really racist.
@you check your privilege. lol.
@tbh I don’t think it’s racist at all, I was just trolling to see if I could get people to agree with me but no one took the bait. After a while I felt bad about accusing the people who made this of being racist and the idea that they might think I was being serious. The video is actually pretty funny. Sorry!
@just wait until some stupid feminist states that they are objectifying women…
@Anonymous Other than the lyrics and the singing being absolutely TERRIBLE, this video is kind of okay, I guess.
@WHITE. PEOPLE. and other collaborationists
@Anonymous you know what I take it back, this is funny
@Anonymous No mean blog comments until after Yom Kippur. Okay. Please, God, let there be no frat scandals until then.
@LGBT-identified BC student wait this is amazing
@Identity Politician Glad to hear that it’s LGBTQ-approved.
@anon Those turban terrorists shouldnt have a video on this website
@And also spec sucks!!
@gross word choice ‘exotic’
@20 rupees is like 30 cents. it’s not racist, but it’s in bad taste.
@lol these guys always make videos like 2 months too late
@Anonamoose Thrift Shop? This is like a year too late.
@Whatever These guys need to stop and get over themselves. It’s not good or timely guys.
@Are you jealous? There videos are absolutely entertaining and brilliant. Stop being jealous and get a life.
@ehhhhh, I don’t think anybody is jealous of these guys…
@Anonymous …cultural appropriation.
There, I said it. *flees comment section*
@Actually... Chris and Angad do very good and important work in Punjab — something related to development and education and trying to make it a better place.
Not sure how people think the video is “racist” or “too late.” They released it to the Columbia audience because they go to Columbia, but (according to Chris) the real purpose was to inspire Punjabi youth (and to have some fun during their long, hot summer doing difficult work in the towns of Punjab).
And my favorite part? Both Punjabis in India and Punjabi-Americans are eating it up. Haters gonna hate, but Punjabis gonna love.
@And further... I heard they might be editing a feature length film about the sustainability issues of the region.
Most exhausting walk on campus?
