This is the third in a series of articles detailing the infinite ways in which Harvard sucks. Evidently, this series will never end.
Just yesterday, “On Harvard Time” released their second video before the annual Harvard-Yale game. While last year’s video focused on bringing fake tours of Yale to unaware tourists, this year the Cantabs gained the courage to interview actual Yale students. While they went to such lengths as to don full Yale regalia, their presence was quickly made known on Overheard at Yale, after which a man hunt ensued. With so many students actively looking to ruin their video, it must have been extremely difficult to find actual footage that they could use. That probably explains why most of the video only shows the perpetrators talking.
Of course if you are rude, people won’t want to talk to you anyway. “They filmed people creepily without asking,” Leah Motzkin ’16 said. “They asked me and my friends if they could film us and we said no and we are still in it!” Daniel Keller ’18 said that he also did not want to be in the video, adding that the fact that they still filmed him is illegal. This hasn’t been the first time Harvard students have broken the law. If you recall, in 2013 a Harvard student called in a bomb threat so that he wouldn’t have to take his final.
As to the fact that they were here on a Tuesday, it leaves you wondering how they found the time to travel all the way from Boston down to New Haven. I guess classes aren’t a thing at Harvard. That or they ultimately deemed it more important to dress up as Yale students and protest the Yale football team. Either way, it seems they have their priorities figured out.
But I mean, you got to do what you got to do. Clearly they do not think their team will be winning the game this year. For them, the next logical step to take turned out to be protesting the Yale Football team so that the game never happens. If there is no Yale Football team, then Harvard will never have to lose the game. Genius, right? Well, from the video there appears to be a grand total of 8 Yale students who signed the “petition.” I am pretty sure you need a bit more than that. Better luck next time.
Many of the people interviewed were asked who had won the Harvard-Yale games in recent years. Really? You need to travel all the way down to New Haven to ask that question when Google is at your fingertips? Well, at least they found their answer. Then again, if they knew the answer, that means they drove over two hours so that they could actually feel good about themselves for a change. There is a name for that, it’s called an inferiority complex. I suppose since they never attended class though they wouldn’t know the meaning of the phrase.
Of course, the video ends on a satisfying note. As Noah Steven-Steins ’18 pointed out, Sam Clark of “On Harvard Time” falls on his face
