Ohmygod, Food

How do you know when a viral video is done, done done? When a Yale student group spoofs it. First their Senior Class Gift fund brought us “Senior Gift in a Box.” Now their women’s crew team has applied the winning formula to comedian Liam Sullivan‘s ubiquitous “Shoes” video.

The original “Shoes” (2006) tells the story of Kelly, a blonde ingenue who, stifled by the tedium of family life, sets out to “get what I want.” Namely, shoes. She embarks on a journey that takes her from store to store, where she offers pointed, often devastating, critiques of various types of shoes. It eventually devolves into a decadent Boschian fantasy with flaming hula hoops and big stuffed purple dragons. If you haven’t seen it, you’re either dead or you’re J.D. Salinger. (Don’t play, Jerry, you know you read us.) In either case, watch it here.

The YWC’s homage borrows the original’s structure and spirit, but adds a thematic twist. Rather than combing the town for shoes, the crew team roams Yale’s campus in search of food. The result, while unappealing in most every way, is impressive as a shot-for-shot remake a la Gus Van Sant. We’ll leave the criticism at that, seeing as any one of those mustachioed women could absolutely manhandle us. If you find yourself getting the point, fast forward to the end: you’ll see one girl bench-pressing another.
