Harvard isn’t all about studying. You can also come up with an idea while studying and become a social media mogul. Or, you can pass the time between tests with some sports. Not just basketball and try to become the next Jeremy Lin. Baseball, and having fun while in the van, touring, is an option as well.
But I guess when people got Harvard, even with their new financial aid system which makes it easier for young people coming from poorer backgrounds to get in to the university, not too many people are dreaming of becoming the next Frank Herrman, currently pitching for the Cleveland Indians in their Minor league system.
So, what is there to do and gain national prominence, or at least an internetian prominence? Do a funny youtube clip. The guys thought of something that’s not exactly original, but their execution made it cool and worthy of the share. Mimicking and lip syncing in their van while the terrible ‘Call me maybe’ by Carly Rae Jepsen is playing.
Despite the performance being very good, the guy sleeping (or just acting like he is) through the whole ride stole the show from the amateur performers.
