Ohhh, college. If you don't think this video is funny, it can only be because you're not watching it.
It's from three years ago, in our old college newsroom. Because I had not yet ascended to the ranks of the cool (read: editors), I don't appear in this video (it's a budget meeting - woo!), though one of my best friends, another lowly reporter, does - she's the girl at the end in the striped sweater putting the banana on his shoulder. She brings on the best part of Ben's banana-crazed reaction, anyway.
And yes, he means it - the kid hates bananas. Lots.
Sure, the song is annoying & the videography is blurry, but darn, it's fun - so fun, in fact, that back in the day, a local alt paper wrote about it. I've been a wee bit cranky for the past few days, & I got a little emo last night reading through a bunch of my old Xanga & Myspace posts (don't judge, everyone's gotta start someplace) - but amongst my old posts, I found this amazing piece of Daily Kent Stater history, & I couldn't resist reviving it to share with anyone who's interested in a little bizarro fruit comedy. It made my day & induced the elusive actual LOL.
Also, this just in: Would you judge me if I admitted that I miss college? A lot?
