Rappers allege “Errbody’s good lookin”


 

School pride at the University of Western Ontario has migrated from the backside of sweatpants and your boyfriend’s football jersey to video quickly gaining popularity on YouTube.

The video, called “White & Purple,” has been dubbed UWO’s “newest anthem” by producer Eddie Manuel and is making the rounds on students’ Facebook walls and emails circulated with the subject line “ZOMG.”

Starring Shayan, Nava40 and Dee Minaj, the video purports that the University of Western Ontario is superior to other institutions of higher education.  Supposedly “reppin’ the school where errbody’s good lookin,’” the performers make a series of allegations which include the fact that its “Ladies [are] blinged out with precious metals,” and “In class errbody’s wearin’ ripped jeans.” At several points throughout the video, students yell “F**k Queen’s” whilst flipping the bird to the camera. Ah, school spirit…

The best rhyme of the piece has to go to one young gentleman whose T-shirt suggests he has been “Fly Since 1985.” Surrounded by comrades on the Mustangs’ football field, he says “Booster Juice got more peeps than the bar / Glitch on WebCT—bonus marks!” Never before has academic misconduct been so fly.

In all seriousness though, great production value and annoyingly catchy. I hope and can’t wait for a Queen’s rebuttal.

  1. Westernnnn!!! So proud, AMAZING video guys! Makes me miss the alma mater! Keep living the dream young mustangs!

  2. black and yelloe, black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow

  3. black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow

  4. Amazing video! Looks like it’s true, Everyone is good-looking!

  5. Western was one of my top two choices for universities next year. I’m gonna have to reconsider since the majority of people in the video seem to act like total douchebags, especially at 0:31 with that fat Asian dude, and for the rest of their song when they yell “fuck Queen’s!”. Like, really? I thought that usually by the age of 20 or 21 as adults, people would get over using the middle finger too, guess I was wrong. Great school spirit though and catchy song, but learn to act your age. And btw, Queen’s is also in my top two, get at me.

  6. Agreed, Queen’s is awesome!
    “Western: Accepting Queen’s Rejects since 1878”
    Not only was this quote printed on t shirts, it’s funny and true to this very hour.

  7. I’m from UWO at Kings. I can say that the university colleges of King’s and Huron are good at UWO, but the main campus has too many pissed-off conservatives. I entered UWO optimistic, hoping to pursue a career with politics, in my first year there was a very good federal election candidate for the NDP, since I am just tired of London. If you are not going for BMOS, health care, take journalism or something in the arts to stay sane in London and meet liberal-minded, good people. Taking politics courses here has cost me my health.
