Update on The Rude Youtube Video

10 Nov

sorry regret retraction

A week ago I posted a video here: https://yeshivaforum.wordpress.com/2011/11/02/its-not-rude-if-its-for-youtube/ with an accompanying angry rant. Frumsatire just posted the video and one commenter wrote:

It is satirical. Like I said, it was a video made for purim. It was a joke. The joke was that JTS students are so broke and desperate for internships that singing on the subway for change counts as an internship.

Had I known that, I wouldn’t have been so harsh. Someone at JTS should use some sechel and not post all their inside jokes on youtube with no explanation, but other than that, I have no tainos on them. “Gella” says it was a joke, and I actually believe her. It’s exactly the kind of toothless, played-out, yoitzeh zein “purim humor” you get out of most institutions.

Sorry for pouring that steaming cup of hateorade out on you, Ms. Jewish cantor. I didn’t realize you were getting screwed too.
