I don’t think I’ve ever seen a promo spot for a college that didn’t want to make me claw my own eyes out, but Appalachian State University’s promotional clip is like an exercise in PowerPoint torture soundtracked by the world’s least soulful Glee Club. 

The signifigance of the image is that it’s my favorite part of the clip.  Toward the end of the clip there’s some gospel-ly singing going on, and right as it starts they show this guy.  Classy.

    I’m so glad they have the lyrics at the bottom so that I can memorize the song and sing it to others.

    The only time I was ever on the campus of ASU, there was a foot of snow on the ground and it was about 15 degrees. ASU ain’t hot all the time.

    My god man, were you not listening?!  Even when the weather is cold, cold, cold, ASU is HOT, HOT, HOT!

    I…have re-dedicated my life to the complete and utter destruction of this so-called “university.”

    Just an FYI – this is not an official promotional video. This was used at a handful of events back in 2004 that were geared toward older alumni and donors. For some reason iFilm promotes it as an official video when it is not. I admit when viewed out of context, it’s pretty sad, but again, it was never a promotional video, just a rah-rah song for older alunmi.

    The mistake was putting it on the web. Never should have done that. Now it’s all over the place and labeled something it never was.

    So, exactly how successful was this video in convincing alumni to make donations?

    Jefferton Alive! This looks like something that would go on Tom Goes to the Mayor.
