Lip Sync & Toons by Mitra L. '07

Real singers and fake singers ...sort of like Jessica and Ashleey Simpson. (~17 pictures)

Last night, I attended a concert by the MIT/Wellesley Toons, one of MIT’s a cappella groups.

Towwards the end of the concert, Lee-Kai ’07 divided the lecture hall in half and told us it was time for audience participation. My half made saxaphone noises, and the right half made some pretty great trumpet noises. Can anyone guess what song we were accompanying?

RUBIX CUBE COMPETITION! The emcees asked the audience for “rubix cube people” to unscramble a 3×3 cube, and at least 8 people volunteered. It was awesome.

Sarah ’06, who is an MIT-EMT (Emergency Medical Technician, I think?), gives one of her fellow EMTs a heart attack. (Although it certainly doesn’t look like it’s against his will.)

So they call even more EMTs to revive him.

Does anyone remember the Fatboy Slim video for “Praise You” ?

The sisters of AXO certainly do:
