Any old group of frat boys from a state university or lesser can spit out a video of themselves running around shirtless to a Katy Perry song, but it takes an Ivy League diving team -- in this case Princeton's, using 'Teenage Dream' -- to get to the goods with which true viral video stardom is made: A bunch of almost-naked 19-year-olds in the shower together. That comes around the 2:50 mark, but there's plenty to look at before then. Nevertheless we would like this internet meme to end and for someone to do something original again please.

First there was the Party in the FIP video, where those Fire Island gays did their own Miley tribute, and Miley gave them her blessing. Then those Lutheran boys from Midland University in Nebraska copied them, because they wanted to be cool too. Then you have Ryan and the gang doing "California Girls," and "Peacock." And now these frat bros from the University of Arkansas have gotten in on the act, frolicking in the snow like frat boys do. The commenters on Towleroad of course take note of the Chick Fil-A cup in one shot, and one especially bitchy fellow notes, "I'm sort of shocked by how entirely out of shape younger generations have become, if this is just a random sampling."
