Chinese new year cheese

Remember the campy Yale musical/admissions video? Well this new Princeton video might just match it in levels of cheese.

The Chinese just celebrated their New Year, and from Feb. 14, 2010 to Feb 11, 2011, we’re looking at the Year of the Tiger. Trust the University to capitalize on the obscure connection to flaunt some Tiger spirit, a couple programs and facilities, and of course, heaps of cultural awareness.

It’s a pretty funny video on the whole. Highlights include footage of sporting events with empty stadiums/sports venues and subtitles for the locomotive chant (“Rah! Rah! Rah! Sis! Sis!”).

Here’s to the year of the Tiger, or, the year of underwhelming Princeton promotional tactics.
