College is supposed to be a time of drunken folly. You make mistakes, learn from those mistakes, make more mistakes, pay for them dearly, and so on and so forth. But that’s not the case at every university.
Take BYU, for example. Students are held to a strict code of no sex, no boozing, and, up until a few weeks ago, they didn’t even have caffeinated beverages available for purchase on campus (no, seriously).
So imagine my surprise when I came across a video of their mascot, Cosmo the Cougar, dancing his fucking face off to the greatest hip-hop number of all time.
MIC DROP. That routine is so intense that it almost makes up for the fact that their football team is full of a bunch of goofy, 25-year-old Mormon dudes. Can you imagine how opponents must feel after seeing that little number? BYU by 100.
The real question here is the identity of the person underneath the Cougar mask. It’s hard to imagine that one of the aforementioned Mormon dudes can move like that. The mascot is much taller than the ladies from the dance team, however, so it doesn’t seem to be a chick. Is there actually somebody cool going to BYU?
Either way, they’re raising the bar for mascots everywhere. No longer will high-fiving children and flexing your mascot muscles cut it. Mascots around the country are going to have to learn a skill like this if they want to maintain any sort of job security. I’m all for it. Nothing like some mascot dance battles. To every other school who isn’t providing this type of mascot entertainment, your move..
