100 Things Cyclone Fans Need to Forget Before They Die: Hooray! For Ames

Who wouldn’t want to go to Ames after seeing this video?

I have a confession to make.

Before typing up this piece, I had heard of this legendary attempt by Iowa State to recruit new faculty to Ames, but had never actually seen it. After watching this for the first time, I’m convinced this is the best worst video of all time. So much so, that the video was removed from YouTube. Luckily, I was able to find it on another site. Enjoy.

Let’s break this bad boy down.

  1. This song was made by a “band” named Smiling Stone Soup.
  2. Terrible harmonizing throughout.
  3. Can anybody identify what vehicle they appear to be driving around in?
  4. Malika appears to be a bit dubious.

5. Why are these two so close to each other?

6. DOG!

7. Ames tap water being mentioned as a primary selling point.

8. These two again. I guess that explains why they were standing so close.

9. Starting to think this guy’s been kidnapped.

10. Ah yes, the time-honored tradition of skiing at Lagomarcino Hall.


12. Is anybody even driving this thing anymore?
