“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.
