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. 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 😛

  2. 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. 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. Oh, that straw. I get it now. As I love breaking camels’ backs, I’ll take it as a compliment 😛 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.
