Is this the worst YouTube video ever? According to many around the internet who’ve commented on the video, yes, yes it is.
The music video stars and was created by the Loughborough University Student Union to help promote Union activities and up their membership numbers. Simply titled “Exec Song 2013,” the hapless participants sing to rapper Naughy Boy’s “La La La.” It is unclear at this time whether the lyrics and dance were premeditated or done in a moment of unbridled white people-ness.
Loughborough University has publicly sworn that they had “no involvement in the production of the video,” so police are currently investigating whether there were other perpetrators that may have been involved behind the scenes in orchestrating the music video atrocity.
Union President Josh Hurrell, while on the lam, released a statement to the university’s paper The Epinal that read:
“It is meant to be taken as a joke however I fear people think we are being serious.
We use it for a memory game during the fresher presentations and it was well received during the presentations and at the international induction events that we played it at.
Out of context it doesn’t seem to have the same effect.”
As usual, Redditors were the ones that tipped off the internet community and eventually the authorities that a terrorist act had been committed on YouTube. The Reddit threads drew tens of thousands of hits to the video, which has still yet to be taken down by YouTube in an act of open defiance that is characteristic of their parent company Google’s public intentions to destroy the republic and take over the world. Authorities at this time are not releasing any more information, but have so far disabled comments on the video because of the prejudice-inciting comments against the general Loughborough University student body, who have been advised to stay bunkered down in their dorms while the nation is on red alert.
