  • Hi we're Joel & Lia and today we're reacting to sorority houses! "Step inside this new

  • Southern sorority house" don't mind if we do! Thank you. What do you know about sorority

  • houses? What's the lovely film I watched and it was like "delta....beta...." it had all

  • the houses. Legally Blonde? No, the film 'Greek', what's that about? Is it a film or a TV show?

  • I think it's a film. I've never heard of it. OMG Joel, you'd love it. Like a girl and she's

  • in a big like neck-brace and then she breaks free oh it's so funny! Coz it's all Greek

  • letters isn't it, alpha, beta, gamma.... all of that.... sigma. I dunno, it's just weird

  • because obviously sorority is the girl version, fraternity is the boy version, but I'm confused

  • do they live in the same building, is it just a club? I don't think they live in the same

  • building but I'm literally basing all of my knowledge off of one film. No but I think

  • in some films they all... they live in a big house that's a dormitory and they all live

  • there. Is that not a house party? No, it's like our version of student halls. Yeah, oh

  • wow! So there's some mixed houses and then there's all girls houses, all boys houses,

  • no, no mixed, just girls and boys coz it's America and they don't like ... no mixing.

  • Very Christian! No mixing. So we've got 3 different sorority type videos. Shall we just

  • kick it off? I love how much effort they've, firstly, put into all their clothing, it's

  • matching. Oh bless them. Bless their sweet hearts. So this is their house. The houses

  • are amazing as well! That's incredible, look at that! The houses are insane, isn't that

  • insane? Hang on, I feel like I know her. Here we go. I literally.... you don't know her,

  • she's halfway across the world! Sorry but that looks like someone I know. Looks like

  • a viewer that I met, that looked like Callie. See they all eat there and live there and

  • I'm just like this is strange. Why is there old people in there? Yeah that's not right.

  • Get them out. Unless they're teachers. Dorm areas, look at their dorms, their dorms are

  • amazing. The one thing I don't like about American colleges though is that you share

  • a room. That never happens in the UK you never share a room, you have your own rooms. I shared

  • a room at boarding school, yeah boarding school not university. Oh right! Yeah you'd never

  • have to share a uni room. You share a kitchen but you never share a room. Yeah by the time

  • you're that age you need your own space. Yeah, I remember my friend who did a year at NYU

  • or something she hated having a roomate, she was like it's literally like you've got no

  • privacy, look their beds are right next to each other. Imagine moving in with a stranger

  • and sleeping right next to them. I have done that but we were given each other's email

  • address and were able to talk to each other before. Wow. I just think, they put a lot

  • of money and effort into those houses, they look amazing. But why do they do it, why do

  • they do it but we don't do it over here, because it looks really cool but what's the reasoning

  • behind it? I just think we haven't got the money, we haven't got the patience. Well that's

  • the thing, colleges earn so much money because the fees are ridiculous. So like one persons

  • fees would like what? $100,000? for like 2 years? Yeah probably! I don't know how much!

  • But they've fully kitted out... all of the food looked incredible in that canteen as

  • well. It's insane! So let's look at this one. The title is "the internet is freaking out

  • about this sorority recruitment video" So they're trying to recruit members. Yeah so

  • like everyone's there and it's like which house do you wanna be part of? And it's like

  • a fitting in thing. Are you allowed to not be in a house? Does everyone have to be in

  • one? Yeah coz whilst you're in the deciding phase you're going to be coming into it next

  • year. No but do you have to be in one. Yeah, I think so yeah. Otherwise where are you gunna

  • live? I think there might be like an anomaly house for rejects. This film was very... outsiders.

  • But what if you just wanna live at home with your parents and save money? You don't, don't

  • just don't. Just don't. Just try and fit in. Well I would never want to be a part of this,

  • just look at how cringe these girls are, I've seen a bit of it already. Why have they all

  • got annoying voices? Oh that's so cringe. Imagine if you just did not wanna be part

  • of this, yeah and you would just be like I'm not doing it. I'd be at home in my room like

  • I'm not coming down to do that stupid video, like leave me alone! Oh my gosh Joel, that's

  • what they wanna do they love getting involved! They love it and they learnt the dialogue

  • and they all practised it and then the doors open and there's the clapping, like, isn't

  • it hilarious? It's hilarious because it's so unnecessary! I'm just like what are you

  • doing? Get back in your room, open a book. You're at college to learn, okay? Be insular.

  • Don't socialise! I think socially they're great, they all get together, but I think

  • these houses, from what I saw in the film, there can be like bullying, and being like

  • in with the 'in' crowd or not so 'in' crowd and you've gotta go there and be like "where

  • do I fit in? I'm not rich enough to be in this house coz everyone here's got a rich

  • dad" Like, it's really scary. It's mean. So if you don't wanna do it, where do you go?

  • That's a good question. No idea! I do think - my view of it is that I thought you didn't

  • have to be a part of it, it's just there if you want to be a part of it and it's really

  • prestigious if you get to be a part of the sorority house. Which is stupid coz it's just

  • a house with stupid letters. Maybe they live closer to campus? Or on campus? And everyone

  • else just commutes in, in a car. See I don't know! There are so many American films set

  • where people drive in, also why do all the girls look the same? I swear there wasn't

  • a single black girl in that sorority. Yeah it's not very diverse, they're all white girls

  • with straight blonde or brown hair. It's ridiculous, there's no gingers there! There were no gingers!

  • They're in their own house, honestly they actually are! They are, they're in like a

  • gamma house! This one, Alabama... Alabama sorority. An Alabama sorority has been criticised

  • over their recruitment video. Great, can't wait to watch this one! 'Bama sorority! Look

  • at them! Wow! Oh look! They all look so.... They try to be like Miss America, oh no they

  • do the fake laugh thing like "lets pretend we're having a great time". Why are they all

  • wearing white? Yeah because they're all so pure and virgins. They're not virgins, come

  • on. I'm at college! Come in! This is horrific, look, this is terrible. I would not fit in.

  • What if you're not a girl that's like that, what if you're not like a super girly-girl

  • who wants to be ridiculous. Oh no, what if you're like "Im not an Instagram model". They

  • all look the same, look at them. I mean they look like they're having a great time. "blessed".

  • Alpha-Phi. They're literally all white! Look at the house! UA? University of Alabama. That's

  • insane! Coz isn't Alabama supposed to be like one of the most.... it's meant to be a sweet

  • home... sweet home Alabama. I just thought it doesn't surprise me that there's racial

  • discrimination in Alabama. Oh it does not surprise me either. But you know, it's good

  • that the university said look this is not representative of who we are because that

  • is really bad. Yeah that's so bad. Like these girls in this house get to pick who comes

  • in next, like building on already a lot of prejudice, it's really scary. It seems like

  • incestuousness! Imagine like being in a bitchy house like that, like you'd just crumble.

  • That's the thing, are they actually all laughing and having a good time or do they all hate

  • each other and love drama? All their periods will sync at the same time which means they're

  • all gunna be in terrible moods at the same time, can you imagine going into that house

  • with all those women like .... oh my gosh it'd drive me crazy. It'd be awful! We would

  • not be able to survive that. No, we'd be in our own house, the J&L house! What's Greek

  • for J and L? Well we can't really say the J sound, because my mum's name's Yoanna but

  • in English that's Joanna, but Greeks always say Zoanna, because we haven't really got

  • the J sound. L is lambda. Why do sororities use Greek letters? Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta,

  • Zeta. Like what does it mean, like why would you choose Alpha-Delta but not Zeta-Theta?

  • Yeah coz in one of the films Zeta's like an uncool house. SO all of these ones that you're

  • like Oh I can't possibly be Phi.... oh no that was one of the cool houses. Or like Delta-Nu,

  • that's in a film somewhere, Delta-Nu, that's probably in Legally Blonde. Yeah, so loads

  • of questions about sororities, yeah we'd both hate it I think, unless we found like a really

  • cool house with like really cool people. Yeah, but just the sheer amount of people in that

  • house as well would just be awful, it's bad enough ... I live with 3 other people, so

  • there's 4 of us in the house and I'm already like i don't wanna live with 4 people (well

  • 3 people), it's too many! Too many people. Yeah I feel you, I get it. Too many housemates

  • spoil the broth. That's what they say. Exactly, or the potion, in last nights house video....

  • Joel had a Harry Potter party last night, Harry Potter themed birthday party for my

  • housemate. And he went as a broomstick. Insert photo here. It was fantastic. It was great!

  • It was such a fun party! So yeah! At the HP House! Right guys well that's our reaction

  • to these things, let us know if you liked this sort of Brits react to series, we're

  • gunna keep doing it on our channel if it gets a good response. If not, we're gunna keep

  • doing it anyway! We're gunna do a fraternity one next, so stay tuned for that, that will
