A Series of Unfortunate Yale Videos: Senior Class Gift Edition

Those uppity Yale videographers just won’t quit. First there was the Christopher Buckley-angering admissions musical, “That’s Why I Chose Yale” (which earned IvyGate a New Yorker shoutout, NBD). Next came the equally calamitous Pi Phi and Theta rush videos, which sent Gawker-commenters into even more intense misogyny-bouts than usual. After those resounding successes, we know you were left clamoring for more.

In that spirit, on this fine February evening, IvyGate is pleased to bring you the latest in Yalie propaganda, this time straight from the administration itself. It’s a promotional video for Yale’s Senior Class Gift campaign, and it involves creepy piano music (from the composer of the admissions video), melodrama, shattered friendships, high-pitched screaming, a crying baby, and yes… a dream sequence. Feast your eyes:

The message? Donate, or get lynched. Subtle…

    While kinda lame, this is infinitely better than the admissions video. Professor Gitlin is in it, along with an attractive, non-fairy cast. We’re improving.

    The most unrealistic part of the video is at :07, where a faculty member is shown speaking with a student.
