There’s nothing quite like ringing in the buildup to a rivalry game than with a mascot dance-off set to a worldwide dance hit.
That’s exactly what those in attendance at the Beavers vs. Ducks Pep Rally in Portland last Wednesday were treated to. As part of the 2.5 hours’ worth of festivities, Oregon’s Puddles the Duck and Oregon State’s Benny the Beaver participated in a “Gangnam Style” dance-off.
The clear winner of the competition was Puddles, although Benny had his fair share of smooth moves as well. Plus, Puddles has the built-in advantage of both a more “elastic” costume and the experience of having previously starred in his own “Gangnam Style” parody video.
