Adorable pre-frosh Roderick Cook made this video thanking the Penn Class of 2016 online community for its support and strong sense of camaraderie and etc. etc. etc. as he and the rest of the newest crop of bestest and brightestest move into West Philly. They’re a bunch of good friends already, ya hear? But seeing as the 2012-13 academic year is the Year of Proof, we’d like to PROVE to you, RoCo, that we’re your strongest candidates for BFF-hood at Penn.
Roderick: “…It was a really great experience to be able to make friends and have a good time with people without even meeting them.” (1:23)
UTB: We hate meeting people too! All those awkward “Hi, how are you?”s, “What’s your name?”s and “Damn, that’s a helluva gaptooth!”s we always get? WE DON’T NEED ‘EM EITHER!
Roderick: You have a dog named Honey and cat named Sunny.
UTB: Our spirit guide is a catdog named Shunney (pronunciation: RAH-dur-ick).
Roderick: You used a pleasing medley of showtunes and Disney classics as background music.
UTB: BECAUSE WHY NOT?
Roderick: Your name was Roderick Cook.
UTB: Your new name is RoCo. #RoCoRocksOurSocks2k12
In conclusion, come meet us at the SAC Activity Fair on Monday, September 3rd, from 11-2 p.m. on Locust Walk. We’ll be the big button with the silly crack down the center holding the yellow balloon. See you then! And say “Hi” to your mother for us, okay?
