On Tuesday, Jim Ryan announced the release of UVA’s 2019 holiday video, which is a whopping sixty minutes long and seems to feature every famous UVA person you could possibly think of.
So, of course, I had to watch it.
Long story short, here is every thought I had while watching this absolutely mind-boggling journey through the UVA-themed, hot-cocoa-fueled fever dream that is this video.
- @jimryan I have questions about your mug drinking style
- He left his full mug of cocoa just sitting on the shelf????
- Just noticed this now but why would the chair not face the fire??
- Ah now a trick golfer is here, nothing more holiday than that
- ITS BRYCE TIME BOYS AND GIRLS
- He’s literally just holding the Commonwealth Cup, and tbh, I’m not mad
- Fancy roomba is here. He’s got a little hat. Festive.
- CAT AGAIN
- Hoooooo boi here comes the frat guys of a capella (you know who I’m talking about)
- EXCUSE YOU THIS IS NOT A CAMPGROUND YOU CANNOT MAKE SMORES IN HERE
- ANALYSIS: So far, only two people have acknowledged the camera, implying that we as an audience are meant to be seen but only by those most enlightened (jim ryan and one of the backpackers, for reference)
- ITS DEAN GROVES EVERYBODY CALM DOWN
- Awwww he’s reading jim’s book how cute it implies they support each other
- He read one page and then left, implying he doesn’t like it enough to read more. Official review coming later.
- Two guys just took the furniture????????? I have many questions
- WHAT THE HECK THEY JUST BROUGHT IN A WHOLE TREE TO SAW
- Wait why was there no saw dust? How is that possible? Am I losing my mind???
- Larry Sabato is here to clean off the rug don’t worry everybody
- “This is the hardest larry sabato has had to work in his life”
- This has turned into a commercial for Larry Sabato’s book. (You can purchase it on amazon here)
- LOL classic joke jay huff is so tall everybody look at how tall jay huff is
- HE DROPPED THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY
- I’m so uncomfy all of a sudden what is this hellscape
- Yikes its elzinga
- Alternative title for this video: “Old white men read a book in silence”
- Someone really took the time to paint cavman in front of a fire and now that painting exists (Unrelated how do I purchase a painting)
- Do other colleges go this hard on holiday videos or is it just us?
- Okay now a lacrosse boy is here to show off his trophy (rip to soccer forever in our hearts)
- There’s a whole dance crew here but no music so they are dancing in silence – truly the most uncomfortable thing I’ve seen so far
- “I love how uva just shoved in my face everything I’m not good at”
- JIM RYAN IS BACK
- HE GOT THE MUG OF COCOA BACK WOOHOO
Final Consensus: 10/10 would recommend, probably better than Cats
