This past weekend, the new dance meme trend known as the Harlem Shake hit Tufts. A group of students gathered Friday afternoon on the Rez Quad to film their own version of the video which has already garnered over 4,000 views on YouTube. To find out more, see this week’s episode of The Jumbo Report where the Daily goes further behind the scenes with event organizer Ali Jutha.
Youtube star and all around funny-man Bo Burnham was the lead comedian this weekend at Tufts Entertainment and Lecture Board’s fall comedy show. The Daily was lucky enough to sit down with Bo for an interview to hear about his creative process, favorite comedians, and – of course Halloween plans. Listen to our exclusive interview with Burnham and check out these photos from his kooky opening routine!’
The Daily talked with gospel choir director David Coleman after the choir’s spring concert “For You,” which capped off a successful semester that included a spring break service trip to New Orleans. This video is part of a faculty profile series that aims to engage professors outside of the classroom.
Wiz Khalifa may be busy topping the Billboard charts with “Black and Yellow,” but students here at Tufts have been busy making an appropriately Tufts-ish remix of the song: “Drinking Halo.” Check out the video:
“Call of Duty” may have taken the crown from “Halo” overall, but these guys go to Tufts and are clearly proud of their nerdiness. This is much truer to the college experience here than Asher Roth’s insipid “I Love College” (2009).
The production on the song is tight, the lyrics are pretty hilarious, and the dance moves are pretty great. At the very least it’s better than previous Tufts-centric rap, “Dewick Rap.”
Xbox and Busch Light better send these guys some free stuff. It may be a Tuesday afternoon, but I wouldn’t mind a cold one and a quick game of team slayer.
