Columbia Professor Dance Party

December 15th, 2012

This video is pretty hilarious:

Congrats to Breslow, Nakanishi, and Sames for having good senses of humor. The holiday skits at Harvard were canceled a long time ago because a few people there took themselves a little too seriously.

Also, thanks to the three tipsters who e-mailed me different versions of this link. (And, of course, now that I’ve gone back and checked, this video has already made the rounds on Twitter. I will now go back under my rock. Bye.)

    Good one, Breslow is hilarious! Although I like the one from MIT better since the Korean guy in it actually knows the lyrics and mouths them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJtHNEDnrnY

    Who’d have thought MIT would have better dancers than Columbia. These are fun to watch. I was worried Breslow might tip over when he was dancing.

    Columbia Winter Shows are legendary. As one professor who gave the weekly seminar once said, if the quality of a chemistry department is determined by their Christmas party, Columbia is number one.

    Ron Breslow is awesome. Super sense of a humor and pretty nice moves.

    Sames is still their. And you’re no professor (me neither). Look at his current research plan. Could you do it any broader(ly) ?

    adverb or not plays not a significant role heir, i think
