In my Twitter client, I keep a column dedicated to mentions of "NC State" because it helps me catch news I might otherwise have missed, and because often times there is a lot of unintentional comedy involved. On Wednesday night, I noticed something odd--suddenly a bunch of UNC students were complaining about hearing the NC State fight song on their campus.

Wow is nc state really driving around to every dorm playing their alma mater right now...— katherine flippin (@kafaaa) October 25, 2012
Oh man, NC state just rolled up and played some gay tune— Sachin Mishra(@PrinceKumar247) October 25, 2012
As it turns out, a portion of the marching band traveled to Chapel Hill in order to blare State's fight song from dorm to dorm, which is hysterical. It's also way more effective than UNC's go-to prank, which is painting the Free Expression Tunnel during game week. Twitter is evidence enough of its effectiveness. I included a lot here because I just could not narrow these down. To see more reactions, scroll through my Twitter feed.
Kudos to the NC State trumpeteers who drove over to Chapel Hill to play their fight song. Improvement from last year's cow parade. #RipBessy— Michael Melvin (@Melvinism101) October 25, 2012

NC State had to choose between playing their fight song on our campus, and cow tipping #decisionsdecisions— Josh Mcclenney (@jmcclenney) October 25, 2012

Oh how classy NC State, driving all the way up here with your subpar marching band just to sing your fight song.— Esa Alexandra (@indigostar29) October 25, 2012
Subpar? Well that's just not nice.
