On April 1st we announced a hip, new CollegeHumor.com. We were kidding, thank God.

We are watching a fun, animated website tutorial. Our tone
and features will be a little worse, and a little more
STREETER (animated) walks in front of the CH home page.
Hey! Streeter from CollegeHumor
here. I'm really excited to tell
you about some cool new features
we're going to be rolling out over
the next few years--
As Street talks, CHESTER THE JESTER (the former CH logo's
head with a buff shirtless body) tiptoes behind him and
cheesily pulls a lever, sending Street falling down a trap
door with a silly "Ieeeeeee!"
(calling after Street)
Hey, it's me, Chester the Jester.
And I'm here to "shock"
CollegeHumor into the new
CollegeHumor's Campus Quad...
Chester "tears" away the old CollegeHumor behind him, like a
curtain, revealing an ugly modified CH logo that reads
"COLLEGEHUMOR'S CAMPUS QUAD."
Campus Quad combines the CH you

networking experience. Follow me!
Chester "dives" into the logo, like a portal.

With Campus Quad, you can connect
with other CollegeHumor users like
never before. Post status updates
on your "White Board," "Pass a
Note" to your best friends, and
join your favorite "Hall" to find
users who share your interests.
As Chester lists the above features, he passes, in order...
-White Board: large dorm door-style white board as a the
status update, "OWEN IS WATCHING JAKE AND AMIR!" appears
-Pass a Note: large piece of notebook paper reading, "You
goin' to the party?" folds itself up and lands on the desk
of a STUDYING CHESTER in the BG.
-Hall: FRIEND CHESTER 1, also riding a unicycle and doing a
diablo (i.e. "shares Chester's interests), enters and gives
our Chester a thumbs up.
And don't waste time "poking"
around. We know CollegeHumor users
are out-of-control trendsetters. So
here on Campus Quad we "Pong" our
Chester throws a beer pong ball at FRIEND CHESTER 1, who
catches it in a red cup as "Pong'd" appears above him.

Chester enters another hallway, this time on skate-shoes.

Campus Quad is all about
Interactivity, Viral Culture and
tapping into the Webbutante
lifestyle. We will update and alert
you on the latest comedy from
CollegeHumor, so you always know
what's hot and what's crap. On The
Quad you can "Pledge" to you
favorite series and columns, "Buddy
Up" to your favorite writer, and
see what's "Vibing" on the site.
-Pledge: Chester Friend 2 walks by wearing a shirt that says
"Very Mary Kate" in a Greek font.
-Buddy Up: Friend 2 locks arms with an animated Amir, done
up to look like Chester a little.
-Vibing: Friend 2 arrives at a crowd of other Chesters
chatting about CollegeHumor. We see a cloud of CH buzz words
("New Episode!," "Hilarious," "Outrageous") pop over their
