In the mid-’90s, Todd Phillips made a documentary about the secret life of frat houses for HBO. The cable channel opted never to air the special, but it was recently unearthed and thrown up on YouTube. As you might imagine, much of what Phillips and his doc team unearth is pretty appalling. Frat pledges are urged to do rather inhuman and disgusting things — like intentionally puking and biting the heads off of live rats — in order to be accepted into particular fraternities. And the usual binge drinking, misogyny and bad behavior run rampant. It’s kind of mesmerizing. [NYMag.com]
