It's time once again to bring you some of the videos submitted in our contest to find the best movie or song parody made by Canadian med students. This one is courtesy of Dalhousie Internal Medicine residents (2009) and is a parody of the song "I'm on a Boat" by the American comedy troupe The Lonely Island. Their version is "I'm at Code."
Now, these next few fall into a separate genre - the admissions/interview/recruitment video. Not all are strictly parodies -- but they do prove one thing -- if nothing else, med students love their alma maters.
Josh Wang, a 4th year MD student at Western, worked with his class to make this
recruitment video for Western's Windsor campus in 2010.
Amrit Kirpaleni and Tomas Saun sent us this video, prepared by the
Class of 2015 at the Schulich School of
Medicine and Dentistry for last year's interviewees.
It parodies the
Selena Gomez song 'Love you like a love song' and as they put it, it "offers a comedic look at the
application process from the applicants' point-of-view."
Finally, check out this parody mash-up sent in by Josie Xu. She says
Queen's University Medicine Class of 2015 made this series of parody videos last
year and adds, "They are mostly about pre-clerkship years and pre-med school (to cater to the med school Interviewees that this video was originally designed for)."
It's got everything: Hall & Oates, MTV's Cribs, "Sh*t med students say," a TD Bank parody...and more. Get some popcorn, you'll be here a while.
