Can I be speechless, amused, horrified and captivated all at the same time?
It is Yale’s latest admissions video, and the answer is yes.
One blog reaction is here.
The [Yale Daily News] says that of 60 students attending a premiere Thursday night, 13 had “overwhelmingly positive responses.”
I assume the other 47 were unavailable for comment, having strangled themselves with a belt, slit their wrist with the broken shards of an iPod Touch, or otherwise acted out the first scene from “The Happening.”
I actually like camp. And the video, if nothing else, accurately captures a certain earnestness.
Thank goodness I wasn’t asked to sing and dance…
