A lecutre musical (QT video) by Columbia University spontaneous performance artists PRANGSTGRÜP (warning: flash site). Lots of great stuff in their videos section.

I saw the best minds of my generation...

Seriously, though, this is great stuff!

I think we're at the saturation point on pranks now. It's like I can't walk to the store without somebody pulling a joke on me and filming it for a cable reality show. I'm probably being watched right now. You're setting me up for some internet "Jackass" type stunt, aren't you? Damn! Tricked again!

Quel est une lecutre?

I'm morally opposed to spell checking and lecurte has 5 Google results. So there.

Lecurte does have 5 google results. But lecutre has 5,980.

There was a pretty funny one where they went on an NYU campus tour and trolled it. (NYU definitely deserves trolled.) NYU made them "take it down," but in reality it is still up. (The more amusing part is that it is still up after a reorganization of their webspace that occured after the link was taken down.)

Exactly. They both have the number 5 in common so there isn't that much difference.

Fantastic.
How the hell can you do that with a straight face? The kid's incredible.

Awesome. I spent many a boring lecture in Havemeyer wishing someone would interrupt it with something entertaining...

The guy has an amazing range and voice -- anything less than the talent he has would have made this fall short. Kudos to the prankster.

So... were the extra students that joined in part of it? They didn't seem to know the words, so perhaps they just decided to join in spontaneously. It would have been great if more than the three of them had staged it together for some nice harmony from different areas of the class.

Not...that it isn't... awesome already...
