Elements of Style Rap



What a fascinating cornucopia of interestingness is the internet!

Recently I discovered the video below by two Columbia University grad students, Jake Heller and Ben Teitelbaum on a site called Brain Pickings. It’s a rap that pays homage to the iconic Strunk and White book, The Elements of Style.

Yup. A rap. It’s not likely to make the pop charts, but it’s clever and silly. And easy to dance to. If such things bother you, be warned that they inexplicably consume malt liquor from the bottle in several scenes.
