Wroblewski.

Above, a creative advertisement for Cornell men's basketball as it appeared in the Cornell Daily Sun's Winter Sports Supplement. Cornell's Chris Wroblewski impersonates the poster for film, The Social Network. Below, the actual film poster.

There was a scene in "The Social Network" where "Beat Cornell" was written in snow on the back of a car.

BTW, your need to provide a detailed explanation of the poster sort of wierdly diminishes its effect. Just sayin. You didn't need to explain Fight Club and you don't need to explain this.

Believe it or not, not everyone knows the Social Network film.

Fine if u say so. IMHO, even if you never saw it, if you so much as picked up the NYT or any newspaper last month or just walked down the street, you'd have seen that poster. I don't think the Sun would've used an image unless most people got it.

What's up with all the David Fincher plagiarism? If Cornell gets off to a bad start will they rip off the art from Panic Room?

"Most" is not a synonym for "All"

I don't see how you could not have seen that poster until you came to this blog. Even if you were from Iowa or Africa, everyone has heard about the movie or seen something related to it.

Cue Billy Madison line. I am stupider for reading that debate. Who cares if the poster needed more explanation, it's game night.

I've seen the movie and didn't understand the reference at all until I read this post.
