– Damn, this frat is lit as [bleep].
– Oh, this makes me nervous! Whoa! ♪ (industrial intro) ♪ ♪ (hip hop music) ♪ – What’s going on?
– Oh my goodness. – (gasps) Are these
male cheerleaders? What? – Is this like a… like a frat? – Is this a frat?
It’s a frat? Okay, okay. It makes sense. -This a lit-ass pep rally.
What the hell? – If this is for a pep rally,
this is getting the school hyped. – (crowd cheering) – Oh, shit. Damn. Okay! – Oh my god. What in the…?
(laughs) It’s so great. – ♪ Jump, jump ♪ – Yo, this is lit. – This frat’s lit as [bleep]. – Who’s ever heard
of a frat boy cheer squad? Okay, that shit’s tight. – I love their fanny packs. – Why are they wearing fanny packs? – (cheer squad chanting) – Oh my gosh! I’m scared!
Don’t fall! – Oh, shit! – (chuckles) That is so cool. – What? I can’t even do a cartwheel.
This is making me feel bad about… whoa! – That’s so funny. – This is amazing. – (gasps) What j heck? – Whoa! What the [bleep]?! Yo, they’re good as shit!
Yo, that’s awesome! – I am dead. I didn’t know I needed this
until I saw it, and I’m like,
thank you so much. – That was sick, dude! I thought they were
a gymnastics troupe coming off the bat,
but they’re just a normal frat. – (FBE) So we’re gonna show you
some more videos in a minute, but that video is a cheer routine performed by
the Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity at the University of Central Oklahoma
during their annual cheer and dance competition.
– Ah, I should’ve guessed it was a frat! They had
frat boy shorts on. – Wow, they do this every year. – (FBE) This fraternity
and a couple other fraternities from the same university actually
have more cheerleading routines they perform.
– I’m excited. I’m so excited. – Ah! Yes! – I’m dead already. (laughs) – This is Pike. – They’re really on point
with all their costumes. – They got uniforms and everything.
That’s tight. – (chuckles) That was a cool move. – ♪ …shots, shots, shots ♪
♪ Like brrap, brrap, brrap ♪ ♪ Pay me what you owe me ♪
♪ Don’t act like you forgot ♪ – Oh my gosh!
♪ (indistinct rap song) ♪ – Song choices are also
very on point. Oh, that was sick! What? – That takes a lot of trust
to just be flung in the air and know that your bros
are gonna catch you. – Oh, this makes me nervous! Whoa! They’re so good! – I love this, their choreography. – You’ve gotta be fit
to do this too. This isn’t some, like,
“Oh, anyone can do this.” – If you think about college boys
and how much time they had to put into doing this,
it’s really impressive. – Get yo shit, dawgs!
Get yo shit! That’s tight, dude! (laughs) – I love that. You could just
tell how hyped the audience was. Man, I wish I was there.
Where’s my invite? – Organizations in general
don’t do this type of shit. They’re handling school,
probably some are athletes, and now they’ve got [bleep]
cheerleading too? – Why are they wearing
their boxers outside, and what is he doing?! – Oh, they’re little
school girls, I think. – That’s hilarious. – (laughs) Nice. Whoa! – (snickers) Jesus. – ♪ She’s a bad thang ♪
– (raps along) ♪ Fine as hell ♪ Yeah. OHH! Bruh!
– (crowd cheers) – Oh my gosh.
I’m worried for his groin. Is he okay? – Oh my goodness. Yess! – This is so good.
This is SO good. And this is all at one school. – What? They’re so good. – Aw. That was so cute. – (FBE) Well, the first video
we showed you was posted to Facebook and went viral,
reaching more than 5 million views in just two days.
– Wow. Yeah, I could see why.
It’s just so weird, but they’re also SO good. – (FBE) What do you think
it was about this video that made it go viral?
– I’ve never seen a frat do that before.
– It’s all men. And that’s not something
you expect to see. – We’re really at a place
in our society where we wanna talk
about gender equality and so, you know,
women can do what men can do, and men can do what women can do. – Here’s all the things you need
to make a video go viral: You need fanny packs,
you need striped polos, you need little white boys dancing
and shaking their asses, and you need college.
That’s all you need. – (FBE) So after this video
went viral, the fraternity decided to take advantage of the opportunity
by starting a GoFundMe campaign in order to bring attention
to their national philanthropy, the Special Olympics,
and to add a special needs dance program at their university.
– Oh, that’s so cool. I love that. – They did what a fraternity is for,
you know, philanthropy and being a charitable organization.
And they did exactly what they were intended to do
with something dope. – You already gave me a show as is,
and then you’re using that to bring attention
to something that’s important too? It’s like, my gosh,
you guys are great people. Do you guys save abandoned puppies
and stuff, too? – (FBE) When you think
of fraternities, do you typically think
of them participating in charitable causes like this?
– I don’t think so. I know that that’s what
they’re originally intended to do be doing, but when I think
of fraternities, I think of frat boys at parties
being obnoxious. – Any time I hear
of a fraternity or sorority making a headline,
it’s definitely something negative. So this is really refreshing. – I’ve definitely had
firsthand experience. Philanthropy is…
it is a huge part of the whole experience
as well as the college part of it. – I was part of one,
and we always had a philanthropy every year. It’s not uncommon for a fraternity
to have a philanthropy event. I just think it sometimes
gets overlooked, because Greek life tends to
have a negative connotation with it. A lot of fraternities
do raise a lot of money and do a lot of good things
for the community, so it’s a shame
that it gets overlooked. – (FBE) Although cheerleading
is typically thought to be a female sport,
there are many male cheerleaders in cheerleading squads.
As a college student in today’s day and age, do you
think there are still activities that are considered to be
specifically for men or specifically for women,
or have those types of lines kind of blurred now at this point?
– I mean, personally, from where I’m coming from,
at my school, we’ve kind of blurred
those lines essentially. We have a female football team. You don’t have to be
this super buff, 6’4″, 230-pound guy to play football. – I don’t think that sports
should have a gender. As long as it’s something
you wanna do, and you’re passionate about,
your gender shouldn’t define whether or not
you should be able to do it. – Boys will put on dresses
and go to school, and you know, just ’cause,
’cause it’s fun or whatever. So I think slowly but surely,
those lines are becoming blurred, which is like, [bleep] it.
Do whatever you want. – All the lines between females
and male gender roles are almost diminished now
in my generation. Young people my age
don’t really believe in stereotyping genders anymore. – We’re not letting Brittney Griner
play against LeBron James for a reason. Like,
we’re not letting girls who like football
get into the NFL. I’ve seen it not maybe
in higher levels of sports, but lower levels,
like, we’re trying to blend. Like flag football,
girls and guys. – (FBE) So finally, do you hope
this is something that will inspire other fraternities
to continue this trend, or do you hope it stops
and doesn’t go any further than this?
– No, I think this is something to applaud.
– It sends a super positive message, and I think it needs
to continue for sure. – If they continue to,
I guess, use their influence for good, you know, the way
that these guys have been doing, it can definitely go far. – The philanthropic trend,
that should be the message that’s passed on. Put yourself
in the news for good reasons. – I hope it goes on forever
and ever and ever and ever. If I can find a squad to join,
I’d definitely join one. – [Bleep] hilarious. Actually,
I’m hoping that at my university, someday, some fraternity
will pull up and be like, “Hey, we’re gonna
shake our ass to Rihanna.” You know? That’d be awesome. – Thanks for watching
