This is an advertisement for postgraduate studies at Otago University. I love how this ad celebrates music lecturer and doctoral researcher Ian ‘Dr Glam’ Chapman’s “unabashed interdisciplinary exploration of glam rock iconography”.
The punchline to the ad is:
If you’re serious about postgraduate studies, perhaps you should follow Dr Glam’s lead. Once you’re surrounded by faculty and facilities unrivalled in this country, you may be surprised at just how well you perform.
I must say, my musical preference is for ba-rock rather than glam rock, though I have been known to sing the odd rock musical, such as Boublil and Schonberg’s ‘Martin Guerre’. My performance here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXubcAArDJw
