The Spring ’14 downtown dorms have a pretty cute relationship. They rigged up a pulley system between the dorms for no particular reason. They yell goodnight out of their windows to each other. They hang out in the laundry room and laugh for hours when they should be doing homework. (Just kidding. But not really). And then things escalated: on Valentine’s Day eve, the Tobold girls declared a “Love War” on the Miles boys. The next day Miles dropped by dorm meeting to serenade them. A few days later, the girls sang to them during a talent show. The boys surprised Violet with a guitar version of Kanye’s “Heartless” on her birthday, and most recently, the girls surprise-serenaded Leo on his birthday. And they chose, of course, a song by his favorite artist: Theo, his dormmate and other half of the -Eo Duo.
Here is the Tobold girls’ performance for Leo during dorm meeting (pros: better picture quality, Leo/Theo looking uncomfortable, and Ben’s snarky commentary):
Here is the same song performed the next day as a humble (pros: BABY ALDEN DOING KARATE during the performance, excellent harmonies; cons: picture quality is not as sharp):
