“Get Data”: UCSD Neuroscience Grad Students Create Parody Video to Tune of Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’

Last month, the UCSD Neurosciences Graduate Program held a little party at a local bar, and the invitation (above) came in the form of a video based on Daft Punk’s popular video/song “Get Lucky” (below). Writes a local San Diego newspaper: “In sweet, funny and saucy ways, [the video] shows the stress and madness grad students go through in trying to come up with new data for scientific studies. The students released the video to coincide with this week’s Society of Neuroscience meeting at the San Diego Convention Center.” Enjoy the clip and find more grad school oddities below.
