MUSIC VIDEO: Ames Song Going Viral For The Wrong Reasons

ames video

A video profiling the city of Ames is getting reaction on the internet.

The catchy “Hooray for Ames” song was produced by Water Rocks for the Office of the Senior Vice President and Provost of Iowa State University. The video was made as a fun recruiting tool to attract new faculty to ISU.

Some are mocking the attempt.

With lyrics like, “Ames is a safe place, the crime rate is low” and “The water’s so great it won awards, many cultures living together without any wars” one Twitter user described it as the “Worst thing I have ever seen.”

ESPN anchor Chris Hassel added, “This music video about Ames just lost the Internet.”

But some Facebook users were supportive of the attempt.

“They look like they had fun it was definitely something a little corny but that’s ok,” Jessica Jimenez wrote.
