Richard, no offense, but the college crowdof "WASPS","preppies" however you want tocall them, caught on to this ,3 years agowhen it first played on youtube.Been there,Done that. Seen it.The novelty wore off.Although a funthing to reminisce about occasionally.
Yes, entertaining.Thanks for bringing it to my attention.Sadly, I'd guess the girls are virgins.
I remember when this came out. It really made me laugh! Please let's not over-criticize today's post.
Yep, this buzzed a lot around Harvard Yard when it first came out in 2006. There was a corresponding website that was really funny to navigate through as well. Still fun to watch :)
I have it on my favorites on youtube.
The parallel fifths are so un-waspy though...gotta get some voice-leading.
Ha - yea, this is one of my favorites for sure. Bookmarked whenever I need a good laugh. I still think it's funny they even mention the mainline. Maybe a topic for future discussion could be the finer distinctions between Ivy Style, WASP and prep. I see some crossover, but think they're still unique categories.
Ryan brings up a good point, regarding possible future discussions of Ivy League, Prep and WASP similarities and/or differences. For instance, all WASPs are Preppies, however, not all Preppies are WASPS, and not all WASPs attend Ivy League schools...especially if they are well-set and do not need to achieve, and go to work. Some are graduates of the University of Minnesota (a Berwind family member, Mainline WASP comes to mind on this).
"P-Unit Fo Evahhhh!"This video contains more hints of New England WASP than the brain can register during the first viewing, so watch it again and again and I guarantee it gets funnier every time. Last time I checked, you could pickup those Whale Pants at Andover Shop.
re: ...and not all WASPs attend Ivy League schools...especially if they are well-set and do not need to achieve, and go to work. Some are graduates of the University of Minnesota (a Berwind family member, Mainline WASP comes to mind on this).The Midwest and South are full of provincial WASP clusters that have little to nothing to do with New England. Much like most of the Midwest, the culture is not nearly as pretentious and the WASP's tend to be assimilated with other upper middle class / upper class groups.In the Midwest, WASP's attend larger preppy schools like Miami, IU-Bloomington, or many of the smaller liberal arts schools like Dennison, Otterbein, Oberlin, Beloit, Hillsale. There are more of these schools in Ohio than I have time to mention. But most of these schools were founded by 1800's Pioneer WASP's from Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Virginia so they're like a carbon copy of what exists out east. (many of Cleveland's far eastern suburbs look like they're straight out of Connecticut because they were settled by people from CT. ditto for some of Cincinnati's suburbs, but in Cincinnati they look like they're straight out of Virginia)Location aside, they tend to do the same things as the East Coast WASPs. Instead of summering in Maine, they summer on the Great Lakes. WASP suburbs of Cleveland and Detroit have their HS squash and sailing teams. If they're landlocked in cities like Columbus or Indy, life more or less revolves around the club.
There's some awesome sweater-tucking going on here, as well as layered polos.
