Cedar Fest 2008: The Video

Saw the video below on MGoBlog regarding the little "gathering" called Cedar Fest our Spartan brethren had over the weekend.

You know, for the first half of the clip -- the beer, the chants, the girls kissing (yes, the girls kissing) -- I saw simply the drunken (although crude) shenanigans of college students everywhere.

The second half of the clip made me realize, Oh yeah, this is a riot.

For another clip of drunken idiots amongst the tear gas haze screaming "Woo hoo!," "Fuck the police!" and "They ran over the bricks!" followed by head-scratching laughter usually associated with those who think Carlos Mencia is funny, click HERE.

Click hear for another vid and a question about something I don't understand: So this one more or less starts the pre-tear gas mob chanting in the middle of Cedar Village. Two girls are (I assume) on the shoulders of their boyfriends (?) when the (surprise, surprise) "Show your tits!" chant starts. While they don't oblige there, they do start kissing sending the crowd into a frenzy (and quick lunges for their cellphone cameras and video cameras that borders on parody).

As the two girls kiss, a third girl is hoisted up on somebody's shoulders. Then a fourth. And they all start kissing. But my question is this, and it's a mult-parter: A) What boyfriend, seeing the chaos all around and hearing the chants of "Show your tits!" thinks to himself, "Damn, I want my girlfriend to be in the epicenter of a beer and hormone fueled mob! This is a fantastic idea! C'mon, honey, get on my shoulders!" and B) What woman thinks to herself, "Shit, I'm going to miss my opportunity to either show my tits or kiss a girl in front of three thousand drunk people -- and really the world when this ends up on YouTube! Hurry, Brad! Hoist me up on your shoulders!"

Look, I'm not usually one to complain about two college girls kissing. But I am a little baffled by the thought process that got us here.

Video much better without god awful loud annoying music. Looks no different than any other huge drunken college party.
Or Mardis Gras for that matter.

I hear that music and somehow I think of 5 receivers and the dude from Dawson's Creek...

Jennifer said...

well, it did look like a fun party..

"But I am a little baffled by the thought process that got us here." Yost, no need to be baffled. It's simple. MSU students don't have thought processes.

Andrew said...

Clever, phil. You come up with that one on your own?

Now I understand why MSU has a criminal justice major... one doesn't have to go far for their case studies.

Remember, all these guys got into Yale and Michigan, but they chose to go to State.

The police were pretty well composed. Also, why in God's name are they playing "Shipping up to Boston"? Is it the filmmakers' way of saying that they can't wait to get the hell out of Lansing?

Reed said...

I can't concur with the assumption about the women on the shoulders being girlfriends. It's college. There are lots of guys and girls who are friends or friendly or hoping to be more than friends that hang out with one another.

As far as thought process goes... I agree with Phil.

whetstonebuck said...

All of this is so confusing. The only thing I get out of it is Carlos Mencia is funny.

Jess said...

phil, you are wrong, we have thought processes such as 'in what new fun way can we drink this beer?' and 'police are bad'

Also I heard Hash Bash was pretty lame but I think if you were to throw a bunch of drunken state kids there it could have been an alright time.

Mikoyan said...

Hash Bash is a shell of what it once was. If I remember correctly Ann Arbor raised the pot fine not too long ago....
