Today:- Roorkee, Feb – A groovy group of IIT Roorkee students hip-hopped their way to British singer Ed Sheeran’s hit “Shape of You” in a video, showcasing their take on desperate attempts of four young men to woo a girl. In two days of its release, the vido has garnered over 400,000 YouTube views.
Published by the institute’s Cinematic Section and Choreography and Dance Section on Valentine’s Day, the video shows students Meet, Satya, Sambhav and Devarsh ramping up the cool quotient of engineers in their playful take on Sheeran’s song, albeit attired in white shirt, tie, jeans and sneakers.
The narrative follows “four young men, across different domains of profession, are desperately looking to impress a girl, who happens to entertain their approaches well. All of them aiming towards the same goal, a less-lonely Valentine’s Day”.
It ends on a cliffhanger as the boys free-style their way to the end to Sheeran’s raw yet appealing tenor.
“Will they get there? Or will it just be another hunt in vain? Irrespective of your relationship status, you’re sure to enjoy this new video by us.”
