Time-waster of the day: September 29, 2011

Before sketch comedy group Out of Bounds forever etched the line “concrete building that’s made of concrete” into the Brown collective consciousness, there was “What a Brown Man.”

The music video has its problems — production values were lower, hipster jokes have been played out by now and there’s some kind of extended intro thing that this link will skip you over — but it is also terribly catchy. (No lies, this song was definitely my friend’s ringtone for the majority of freshman year. )

The video is also so recent/old  that you may semi-recognize a few of the pictured “mighty Brown men.” Or maybe you’re related to one of them. Awkward. Favorite line: “He loves Ruth Simmons in a reverent way / cause he’s probably gay.”
