Harvard comedy troupe pranks Yale football supporters before rivalry game
These Ivy League kids have too much time on their hands.
Harvard comedy troupe On Harvard Time has a history of trolling the college’s IvyLeague rivals at Yale. Last year, the comedians took prospective students and parents on a revealing tour of the “Harvard safety school’s” not-so-safe campus. This year, they convinced Yale students to join them in boycotting the Yale Bulldogs football program, at least as long as it the team kept losing to Harvard in the yearly rivalry game.
On Harvard Time members donned their Yalie costumes—which were really just striped scarves—and took to the New Haven campus to protest Yale football, posing as members of the fictional “Yale Society of Undergraduate College Kids Standing Against Sports Spending” and encouraging real Yale student to sign a petition to defund the football team. The imposters from Cambridge were so convincing that some Yale students even joined the protests, agreeing to hold signs with slogans like “Yale Football is the 1%” and “Occupy Football.”
The chief argument the “protesters” made for defunding the team was that Yale had lost to Harvard in 12 out of the last 13 matchups, including the current seven-year losing streak. Yikes, Yale.
The Harvard comedians maintained the charade for a while, until a few suspicious Yalies pulled up video of the previous year’s prank and recognized On Harvard Time member Sam Clark.
“There is a stark resemblance to you,” one student accused.
“I’ve gotten that from a lot of people,” Clark responds.
Yale hopes to avenge this insult—and the past seven years of losing to Harvard—this Saturday, at the 131st installment of The Game between the two Ivy League universities.
