Performance by fraternity Pi Kappa Alpha for the 2009 Anchorsplash charity talent show at Virginia Tech.
can any one tell me why that was exciting?
Probably because everyone was drunk and taking pills.
And listening to some classic Prodigy!
that wasnt prodigy it was daft punk
It’s Prodigy first, then mixed into what you know as Daft Punk.
its a mix of prodigy and daft punk
it was prodigy
no, that is prodigy. nice try though.
eh its pretty clear that it was daft punk mixed into prodigy.
It is, in fact, Prodigy AND Daft Punk, two classic revolutionary techno/dance/industrial artists in what’s known in the techno/dance/industrial genre as a “MASH UP.” In this mash up, there is also a “SAMPLE” of Afrika Bambaataa’s “Planet Rock,” which you might also know as Common’s “Universal Mind Control,” due to the fact that the original was “SAMPLED” by Common. Know your music before you start ripping people. It’s disrespectful.
P.S. On a lighter note, this mash up is pretty sweet. If anyone knows where I can download it, post a link please, that’d be great.
Why are you arguing about this?? It’s not important.. it was a charity!!
uhhh no. because that was pretty much crazy amazing, and you’re too blind to see the intense creativity of this performance
It was creative when a couple of japanese guys did it with a black curtain and a pinpong table. This is just the same deal with irradiated overalls.
It’s not creative if someone did something like it before? Maybe life would be more fun for you if you weren’t such a downer.
creativity??? pretty much amazing??? …..hahahahahaha I don’t think so
really? because i’ve seen a ton just like it and i just saw this for the first time. pretty weak to tell you the truth. much less unoriginal.
it was at a charity talent show…..
I guess ur saying the shows kinda bad huh? lol..
If you were there in the dark it would be great to see and enjoy the music
Because the basics were awesome! There just lacked some creativity in the actual dance…
This is lady gaga!!!
because it was a bunch of college students who got glow in the dark jumpsuits and put on a fairly spectacular show.
black light actually
whether it is college students or not,give the aud things that glow in dark will let them think they have done a great job on the show. if the glow things were taken off, plp wont like this show as much.
Interesting medium if it were implemented by people with more talent than my high school drama class.
there hands control their legs!!!!! duh!!!….yeah… that wasn’t very good. Americans find the simplest things amusing.
Actually their hands don’t control their legs, there are people in blackout suits that are picking the people up.
Get off your high horse, please
I don’t like it…it’s a really bad video
you’re all wrong, they’re all sitting on stools
Nay sire… You are wrong. There are people in blackout suits as chief said. It’s an art form invented by the Japanese. You couldn’t do all that just by sitting on stools.
its true. Their legs are fake. You can see it.
Americans also use grammar.
Hahahahahahaha, like soccer?
Someone knows the meaning of grammar…. Its the structure of language not language itself. And it should be called football, it was made into a standard sport (given rules, etc.) in London.. that England. You dumb American’s just call it soccer, because you already had a “Football”
“You dumb Americanâ€™s”… oh the irony
Sure football is it’s true name. Language is adjusted for clarity and culture. In America we use a different English than you Brits (etc.) do, same goes for Mexico vs. Spain vs. Chile vs. all the other Spanish speaking countries. So please, don’t call us dumb, especially when that’s not even the proper use of that word.
whatever you say govnah! cheerio!
its not some insanely choreographed dance routine, it was a charity performance, it was a cool idea though and undeniably visually appealing.
Yeah, Americans are so simple-minded. Definitely. Or we don’t feel the need to wildly over-analyze things that look like fun.
I believe that they were supported on black pedestals, actually. Look through it again, you can see them siting or kneeling on the pedestals while they’re “floating”.
If you really think you’re that much better I feel sorry for you.
It amazes me how one can make such bold (and inaccurate) comments from one little video.
dude, don’t make it this an argument about different cultures. i would like to see you coordinate something like that. get off your high horse, bro.
Your ignorance is amusing
Ans people like you need to learn how to enjoy even the simplest things in life. “Americans find the simplest things amusing.” What are you trying to say huh? People like you always saying things like that to make the world’s social life full of crap.
Agreed, they like glow stuffs
Let’s see you do it.
‘ummm’ i agree
Dude it’s a concert, people scream for no real reason sometimes.
Shame about the crappy advertising; as if anyone really could win this!
CAUSE IT WAS AWESOME!
It was exciting because it was original. Unlike half the ballet recitals one finds at a highschool.
Original? You mean like the Japanese pingpong video? Yes, very original how they swiped something off YouTube and didn’t give credit.
How do you know they didn’t give them credit? Did you see the program for the event? Did you hear the pre or post MC comments? No. So relax, why accuse when you have no proof?
yea… people have been using blacksuits for a similar effect for a while, not just on YT. maybe you should get out of your moms basement sometime.
That art form you’re talking about is a MEDIA not a painting.
i go to VT. and i just have to say, interesting idea, crappy execution. im sorry but im dumbfounded as how such a mediocre skit could garner such a feedback from the crowd…oh, sororities and frats…nvm
at 6:10, from UT Austin. done way better too.
so jules took a look at the link let me tell you… it was worse than the Pi Kappa Alpha. The girl to the left of the screen is way off beat through a lot of the song. Also, they use a different media altogether I don’t know where in your mind you thought black light and strobe were the same but they are not.
so wheres your citation? are you going to give credit to those that already said it was ripped off by Japanese ping pong?
hey, that was sweet..
All those scream really ruin the show, actually. As the first dude said.. it’s not THAT exciting.
Meh! The Japs do it far, far better……..
the term “Japs” is derogatory…I wish more people knew that Please say Japanese, it’s nicer
Maybe its not the best or that great, but its the point that they thought of it and fairly well-executed, for college kids. Its not like they do that sort of thing for a living, or you see that sort of thing everyday at school.
I didn’t like it
I want to see you doing it
I think that if you are planning to make a show like this you should do it right, not like this
I liked it, it’s really hard to dance all at the same time, you need to practice a lot. You guys really need to stop complaining about everything…
their hands didn’t control their legs. the japanese have been doing this kinda stuff in plain sight on television for years. there were three other dancers there dressed entirely in black that the glow-in-the-dark guys were strapped to.
this is pretty awesome, stop hating on it.
That was sweet. How could anyone not be entertained by that?
i thought it was awesome!
Something they put a little effort into for free. Pretty cool. Neat idea. 10 times better than a bunch of frat boys getting up there in drag.
that wasn’t original. they bit all this from the Japanese ping pong video.
It’s people doing something for charity. Not your typical “animal house” stereotype huh? And no it is not original but neither is it by any means easy to pull off by amateurs. Why can’t you just chill.
Correction, it is original. Not an original media, but an original performance. They still had to think to do this, originality has nothing to do with what the media is and everything to do with the use of the media.
go to six minutes ten seconds. the crowd is so entranced theyre silent.
they are really bad.. more specifically the girls do.. and also there is no music smart one..
Whats amazing is how a bunch of now talent LOSERS making comments on the internet will always talk trash about people who are better than they are.
it was a fraternity (pi kappa alpha) performing at a sorority philanthropy event (delta gamma’s anchor splash) people always go crazy if its even the least bit amusing and creative and this went way beyond anything ive ever seen. so yes, its fairly impressive.
IM GLAD YOU GUYS CAN READ
learn to respect…
I think this was great!!!!
there are people holding the things in the air.
Ever tried working in a team? No? Well that’s what this is, now stop being ignorant.
THEY STILL HAD TO MAKE UP A ROUTINE, BUY COSTUMES,SO YEA!!
Nooooo really? I thought they were using magic!
that was insane whoever did that props bro that was the coolest thing that i seen in a while keep doin it!
I totally enjoyed it.
someone already said it but people judged that as a professional performance. it was a bunch of college kids that did something that was cool so get off their back because it wasn’t to your expectations or similar to avatar. those guys are great!
People picking them up? No, these dudes totally have stools behind them. They look like they’re floating when they sit on them.
no its obvious there being held cause every so often the glow in the dark gets blocked by someone’s hand when there in the air
if you don’t like it, don’t watch it! personally i think it’s great. i can’t do anything like that!
wow that’s cool..
way to copy the marionette show by expression crew.
Angry because they copied it or because you didn’t. People know it is not their original work but its just for fun and charity. Why have such harsh words man just chill.
To be honest, I was fairly impressed. I know a bit about what it takes, bare minimum, for any sort of theatrical performance. The guys doing that show obviously put some effort in to make sure they were moving the bodysuits in a semblance of human motion. Considering how much work and practice it takes for even professionals to get a group of people all moving together in a semblance of order, I’m pretty impressed with the time and effort they put in for a charity show. Very well done.
That was awesome. Stop hating. I’m sure they probably raised a bunch of money at that event for some charity. What have you done today?…That’s right, you anonymously talked shot about some people that you don’t know from behind your computer. Pathetic.
Good idea. It’s too bad they didn’t make it last way too long.
Delta Gamma were the greek letters flashed at the end. not Pi Kappa Alpha
because Delta Gamma is the sorority who hosted the charity event. Pi Kappa Alpha is the fraternity performing. Most of these talent shows hosted by sororities or fraternities are contests, and flashing the hosting sorority’s letters at the end probably earned them points. Personally this is one of the most planned-out and intricate skits I have seen at one of these events. I think its pretty cool.
Performance, choreography, music, crowd… Torture for eyes and ears.
Then explain why you watched the entire thing and decided to leave a negative comment if it was such torture. Unless your into that sort of pain loving thing. Hey whatever floats your boat but just think about what you say. Chill
great!!! They had to practice a lot…I liked it!
hmmm some people just dont know how to appreciate the amount of work put into preforming and arts. first of all these are college students, not only do they go to class but they are putting together a charity show to raise money. also i dont know about u but i am a college student right now and i dont have very much money so i am sure they didnt have the biggest budget for a set, so if u want to compare them to the professional korean dance crew who make a living from dancing professionally and have a larger budget for set design and choreography then u should also compare that the expression crew didnt do it for charity. so i would like to say good job to the frat who put this show on!!!!
I agree! Most of these people haven’t even attended college. Their miserable lives are validated by posting negative feedback on message boards.
THAT WAS AMAZING. BRAVO!
Hey, I thought it was pretty cool. The members of PKA Fraternity did a spectacular job. I was a member of a different fraternity many years ago, and I can tell you that when one fraternity can draw the cheers of its rivals during a competition. . . well that SAYS something!
This Sig Ep’ says, “Well done, PIKE!”
And yes, Pessimist, Delta Gamma was indeed flashed at the end. Anchor Splash is an event sponsored by the Delta Gamma sorority, and participating fraternities do well to show them some respect for the work they put into their fundraisers.
I dont think its supposed to be the level of difficulty that makes it impressive, its just really clever and creative and straight up entertaining….
Good idea, good execution, sure it’s not professional, but I don’t think that’s the point. So stop hating and clap your hands!
…..It was a charity, guys. I don’t see why there has to be a big fuss.
I wonder if all of you Negative Nancies have ever done anything of this nature? You are so great at sitting at the computer typing messages, but I doubt you have done anything of this magnitude. Get out of your mum’s basements and put on a better show, if you can.
Pfft! “magnitude”? LOL
‘Pfft! “magnitude”? LOL’ What a good come back…
i think this is creative & i would of gone to see it..good job guys!
Pretty dumb. I guess the audince were all drunk and or stoned?
I love the hit-backs of the positive comments overruling the negatives. It was a pretty good performance in my opinion, especially since it was done by amateurs.
this is some mighty fine trolling
Some very dumb people taking flash photographs.
HEY LOOK GUYS I AM BEING EDGY ON THE INTERWEBS:
lol this is bad
CAN I SIT AT THE COOL KIDS LUNCH TABLE NOW?
LOL this comment is better than the video!
no, you forgot to curse at how sucky they are and then you can sit. xD
this is a comment that i made because i saw something on the internet and other people said things about it. my comment may relate to what i’m commenting on, but not necessarily. this comment should insult some while praising others depending on which side of my comment’s viewpoint you find yourself on. in closing, i call upon the power of Godwin’s Law to bring about the end of this commenting session.
According to the rules of the internet, commenting is now completely irrelevant and should end immediately.
It was nice to see some positivity in the end after reading much immature bickering over who’s more dumb.
Perhaps they weren’t the best but they were good enough and they were entertaining. Perhaps those of you who claim it’s dumb and that other people can do better should try it for yourselves. Or don’t make negative comments about it when you don’t know how much hard work and effort it truly takes.
I thought it was pretty great- everything is more exciting in real life, expecially if what they did was COMPLETELY different from what everyone else was doing (which I suspect it was), and if they were all drinking (which I’m sure they were). I watched the whole video, and it made me smile Quit hating, and enough with the dumb American comments! Every country has its members that they aren’t proud of. America is no different.
not that great. all the annoying children screaming ruined it for me.
America is obviously still the greatest country ever founded… it’s science. Also, the legs and upper body were controlled by two seperate people. Pretty common method in this type of performance.
HOW DARE YOU TELL ME I’M POSTING COMMENTS TOO QUICKLY? I WILL NOT SLOW DOWN FOR YOU PATHETIC ROBOTS
they actually got asked to perform at a party after the espys. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LR9d_cem2PE&feature=related guess they were better
crowd goes wayyy too crazy on some parts, they cheer at the most useless things.
it wasn’t that good, it was pretty boring. i mean the effect was cool, but they should of used it to their advantage more.
LMAO!!! Its funny to see how dumb the West is for fighting over how they differ in speaking. You think if you criticize each other you will get better in life? Come on now, grow up.
very well done!!!!

I liked it.
JADED AT 20 YEARS OLD…
That was sweet. Everyone who says it was lame is just a debbie downer.
i dont get it! how did they do it??
i do, by copying a routine done by a group three years before them…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyS61OT086c
That’s some pretty crappy dancing right there. Blacklight stuff can be awesome when it’s done properly, but this is so elementary school talent-show. Stop wasting bandwidth…
Ah omg I love DG’s anchorsplash! so much funn. Laughing out loud at all the haters out there.. VT’s greek community is awesome!
did anyone read that this was for a talent show before they opened their fat mouths ? im impressed
I really didn’t feel like reading through all the comments to see if somebody had brought this up already, but, I must ask, why in the world would you use a flash on your camera to take a picture of that? I hate, hate, hate when people go to things like this and leave common sense at home. Aren’t you supposed to be in college, for God’s sake?
