This video is a parody of the song "Thrift Shop," by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Created as a video just for fun and show that there is more to the engineers at Purdue than nerdy bookworms who can code, it received a lot of good and bad publicity. Some people claimed that the video, while trying to break the normal stereotypes of engineers, only enforced the stereotype that there are few to none women engineers and that they are more of a joke rather than engineers to be taken seriously. Most Purdue students who watched this video seemed to enjoy it because it was fun, entertaining and something to take the minds away from the projects and exams.

Mickey Mouse originally was not going to be named Mickey. After the loss of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt began sketching his most well known creation. When he first showed the drawings to his wife, Lillian, he told her his name was Mortimer. Lillian didn't like the name and said something to the effect of "He looks more like a Mickey." Thanks to her, Mickey Mouse is the most lovable mouse on the planet.
