T-Pain for President
With college just around the corner and Florida State University finding itself short of one college president to oversee the various campus activities, a group of young go-getters are lobbying for none other than T-Pain to take the reins.
As part of their cam-pain to get the singer into the administration, they're holding a "make-your-own cam-pain video" contest, a cam-pain poster contest, and staging a pep rally before the September 7 Florida State/Miami football game where you can be sure to hear the slogan "Give Pain A Chance."
If elected, the group is promising that T-Pain will bring about the change that apparently FSU is in dire need of. Such things would consist of having the annual ice cream social on a boat, "replacing the water in all campus fountains and water fountains with Cham-Pain," and "complimentary dranks for everyone (students and faculty) representing FSU at all academic conferences." This, according to them, would help in "auto-tuning academia."
While we certainly support any academic endeavor that T-Pain might undertake, we're not so sure that he has the time to do so! He's supposed to be working diligently, possibly cramming and pulling all nighters, on the follow up to 2008's Gold certified 'Thr33 Ringz.'
There's a good chance too, that he's been tapped by everyone for some sort of guest spot. We hardly think that he has the time to oversee the activities of an entire student body, even if they do want a president who really can relate to them: you know, one that is hip on the ways of bartenders and what to do should you fall for a stripper.
The BoomBox will monitor this situation closely and will be sure to report any major developments.
