Purdue Fans Post Rap Vid, Change Minds
For a time on Tuesday, a host of Purdue fans had joined their SEC brethren in bad theme song infamy. But after a host of internet outlets panned “You Oughta Be Proud,” whoever initially posted the video to YouTube make it private.
Thankfully, enough people wrote about it to preserve the music video’s awesome awfulness, which includes the screenshot below as well as the following lyrics:
- “You know Purdue is the one, you know it’s been fun / Get up everyone and let’s all Boiler up.”
- “And if you live in a house, an apartment or dorm / You can always here the whistle, Boiler Special’s bringing the storm.”
By some small miracle, the fans behind the video got Boilermakers men’s basketball coach Matt Painter to make a cameo. He’s probably counting his blessings that it’s no longer viewable on YouTube.
