LAS VEGAS (AP) — Student filmmakers at the University of Nevada, Reno have agreed to revise a trash-talking YouTube video that demeans rival UNLV after the state's higher education leader complained to UNR President Marc Johnson.
The four-minute, satirical video promoting the Wolf Pack ridicules the Rebels in Las Vegas, at one point referring to UNLV as a "waste of state money."
Chancellor Dan Klaich told Johnson in an email obtained by the Las Vegas Sun (http://tinyurl.com/kghn84x ) he was "appalled" by the video's denigration of Nevada's sister institution. He said it undermines their hard work promoting collaboration and partnership between the two schools.
UNR officials have asked the students to remove the school's logo from the video.
UNR senior Brad Sergott, the video's photography director, says they've also agreed to edit out objectionable parts.
