Duke Beats Carolina On Court, On Campus With Prank
Sure, the outmanned Duke Blue Devils won Wednesday night’s game in shocking fashion against North Carolina at Chapel Hill, but they also won in the Shenanigans Tournament.
”Duke's Cameron Crazies are well-known as the best basketball fans in the world. Wanting to know if their rivals down Tobacco Road were on their level, DSB did some investigative journalism, disguising themselves as Carolina students to see which UNC fans could see through the prank…” Duke Student Broadcasting
One of Duke’s broadcast students donned a Tar Heels hoodie and made his way over to the UNC campus Tuesday to ask Tar Heels fans some questions about Wednesday’s big ACC showdown between the two top-20 teams.
In wearing the UNC sweatshirt, North Carolina students assumed this was a UNC film crew, making it look like most of the questions were going to be pro-Tar Heels. Really, though, it’s quite obvious early on that these students had no clue about either team, and they just wanted to get on camera.
I do wonder if the UNC students represented here are a very small fraction of the ones interviewed, and that the other ones happened to be knowledgeable. But the smart ones got edited out. Smart tactic, either way. And really, if the smart students figured out what was going on, wouldn’t they have outed the film crew to everyone on campus? Maybe not, but they should have!
In the end, these Tar Heels fans were right -- the Duke players really are good!
Finally, I would like to point out that the Duke Student Broadcasting team did spell “Things” incorrectly in the opening sequence. At first, I thought it was a cute play on words, but then saw that they spelled it correctly in the video’s title on YouTube.
Ahhh, well, you can’t win them all, Cameron Crazies.
