Real Men of Vanderbilt

I’m a little late on this — Joel [del 8/29/05] says the links have been spreading like the clap at Tri-Delt — but Vandy people might enjoy these ad parodies by the Dodecs. These are take offs of the Bud Light Real American Heroes commercials, dedicated to the real men of Vanderbilt: Mr. Flip-flop Wearin’, Popped Collar Frat Guy and Mr. Obsessive-Compulsive Facebook Checker. Perhaps the next one will be for Mr. Aerobie Tossin’ Latte Drinker, but I doubt it. Joel has the MP3s here.

While we’re on the subject of parodies, here’s a great send up of “Candid Camera” called “Kicked in the Nuts”. Extremely juvenile, but I enjoyed it. Credit goes to Justin Logan for pointing out this little gem.


  1. Mike M (aka the straw, still not sure what the hell that means) says:

    I have to give the Dodecs credit – those parodies are classic. Maybe we should try and recruit some of them for the Slant. Oh well, back to damning Christianity :-P

  2. Jacob says:

    Mike, it was over an hour after reading this before I had any idea what the hell you’re talking about. I think Tom meant “straw” as in the straw that broke the camel’s back. So not only are you a condemner of Christianity, but you’re abusive to animals as well.

    If anyone else wants to be filled in, check the end of this comments section.

  3. Tom says:

    Mike M. –Looks like I’ve caused unintended offense. I’m sure you’re not abusive to animals :) What I meant to say is that your comment was certainly not the main impetus to my post, only the last (and made a good title). Certainly your comment didn’t merit such a tirade. I wasn’t going to post the link. It looks as if I shouldn’t have. But since I was responding in part to you and I did rip off your expression, I thought I would let you know. I wasn’t being facetious about the civil part.

  4. Mike M says:

    Oh, that straw. I get it now. As I love breaking camels’ backs, I’ll take it as a compliment :-P Seriously, no offense was taken, in fact I was actually amused that the remark got a response at all. I doubt you were ripping me off (I believe I was actually ripping off a “Boondocks” comic myself) but if so, maybe I should copyright the phrase.
