University denizens have been having a giggle today as a humorous ditty was released on Youtube poking fun at the Students’ Union.
The video – entitled “The Students’ Union shall not budge” – criticises a number of events and people within the Union, as well as wider issues such as houses of multiple occupancy and rising student fees. It has achieved over 100 hits in less than 24 hours as students reminisce about the good old days listening to OPM’s ‘Heaven is a Half Pipe’.
With the comedic tune heard by most of the Exec, Democracy and Communications Officer Dave Hind preferred to look on the bright side, stating that he was “glad to see that students are getting involved in the Students’ Union. I hope the people who made the video are considering running for a position in the elections”.
Hind did, however, note that the video may raise some eyebrows in the SU: “Many of the issues highlighted are real”, he said, “but I think that maybe some of the content in the video might be inappropriate.”
The identity of the creator remains a mystery.
