Who knew the professors in the Harvard Economics Department had so much swag?
Ok, they actually don't have swag, but they do have the courage for making their own cover of Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen.
A while back, we posted another cover of this song from senior citizens in a nursing home in Canada. The ridiculous nature of that video is the same thing that makes this Harvard Economics Department cover so great. Who expects to see a bunch of Ivy League professors jumping around their offices lip syncing to a popular song?
Imagine being an undergraduate and walking down the hallway while the professors were taping this? It would be such a hilarious sight. Although not all of them seem to know every word, you've got to give them points for effort.
