Boy, this is a tough one to criticize... even though it deserves criticism. Pless will love it....being from Alabama :)

On one hand, it's pretty spectacular eye candy for any man with a pulse....

...on the other hand, I can see why some women would be highly offended. The video fails to show a single black woman, a single overweight woman, or a single woman who would not be described, at the very least, pretty, if not freakin' gorgeous. It makes the sorority look as if its entire purpose was to serve as party central for hot coeds (and that may indeed be its only function). Talk about objectifying women!

Anyhow, it's in the eye of the beholder.... but guys, don't wear out the electrons in your computer looking at it over and over and over.... :):)

It's the casting call for the Chanels on "Scream Queens".

How about U of Oregon out here on the liberal progressive dope smokin' West Coast.

Is it really a recruitment video? That is, I don't quite understand how a tool to recruit young women would really look like that. The primary characteristic seems to be outrageous (if pretty conventional) good looks, a huge talent for smiling/waving, and advanced skills with hair products. These are all beauty contest contenders, without the awkward interview question scenes.

I can see why the recruitment vid would work for young men. Maybe for sorority funders too. But I truly can't see why a young woman would be pulled in by it.

All I could think of as I watched was some kind of weight loss place.

Last time I saw that much white in one place, I was drunk in Branson MO and stumbled into a Pat Boone show.

I went googling in hope of finding this was a hoax but it's real. Went wildly viral and then was pulled last August.

So? ANY WOMEN WHO ARE OFFENDED SHOULD JOIN A DIFFERENT SORORITY. How hard was that? It's a free country, and women who want to behave like tasteless tarts should be free to do so. Did I say "tasteless? Possibly I spoke in error.

We are truly a shallow draft, centerboard culture...

BTW, I though it was very progressive of them to take in those brunettes.

I watched 30 seconds of it and felt nothing but contempt. Money and beauty buys you a free pass to be a douche bag. Greek orgs have become, generally, the poorest example of humanity rather than the humanitarian points of light they advertise themselves as. After watching the beginning of the video, it seems to me that they don't even try to pass themselves as a charitable organizations anymore, just high a high classed whore-house, reminded me of the beginning of a porn flick. When I was in college, 20 years ago, frats were nothing more than a place I paid $5.00 at the door to drink all I wanted. A friend of mine rushed when he was a freshman but drew the line at having a stick shoved up his rectum.
