Just Say No to Plagiarism!


This is an awesome video made in Norway about plagiarism and how it will ruin your life. Make sure that you engage the closed captioning unless you understand Norwegian! (Hit the arrow pointing up in the lower right corner of the video clip to get CC option.)

This video is hilarious. From what I understand, it was produced by library staff at a university in Norway. I love how it uses the idea of pop culture throughout the video to illustrate the need for citing ideas (i.e. To be or not to be — Shakespeare). The acting is pretty good. I was impressed by the screen cuts and how smooth everything looked. Even some of the cheesy special effects worked for me because the video was a satire.

I think my most favorite part is at the very beginning when the student is carried away by friends to a party and then into a girl’s bed. It’s great how the entire background is a calendar to show how time is slipping away from him. What’s your favorite part?

Video discovered on the Smart Bitches, Trashy Books blog.
