Since Vijay Chattha (C'00) lived on the bottom floor of 4010 Spruce his senior year, he has always been into music and nightlife. Back in 1999 he co-founded and later sold Philly2nite, an online nightlife and entertainment portal with fellow Penn alum entrepreneur Nihal Mehta (C'99, Pi Lam).
Now, as a rapper and executive producer for a group called BlackMahal, he has created something you'll all want to check out this weekend.
After the jump watch the very unique (and catchy) Bhangra-style Steelers anthem and music tribute video he produced.
After you watch it, you'll be in the Superbowl spirit for sure!

Because this weekend is the Superbowl, I thought you'd all appreciate a viral video created by the Penn alum who created a musical interpretation of The Godfather, Tom Dimenna (C'02, Quarterback for Varsity Football Team).
In Tom's film THE PURISTS, two football coaches speak out about what is truly, "Old School".
The video stars Tom as Walter "Gibbs" Branigan and and fellow Penn alum Jeff Hatch (C'01) as Kyle Rogers, a third round draft pick out of Penn State.
After the jump, watch the short and be sure to check out these old timer's reaction to "artificial turf"!

Yesterday Scott Spitzer from the Office of University Communications created a FANTASTIC video stitching together the photos he took of this year's Mask and Wig club show, "A Volcanic Corruption: Sun Intended", from its beginning rehearsals at the historic downtown clubhouse to its show debut last weekend.
After the jump, watch the video and listen to the great audio track filled with lots of traditional songs, rituals and some numbers from this year's show.

Over the past couple of months I wrote a few posts about some alumni who had TV pilots in development with the networks.
Recently, all the networks have been announcing which pilots they've picked up and so far, it looks like 3 separate Penn alumni have TV shows with the big networks.
After the jump, find out who these alumni are and more about their pilots.
