QUIZ: Are These Lines from Harvard’s Eviction Email or Semisonic’s “Closing Time”?

This is a tough one!

1. “One last call for alcohol so finish your whiskey or beer.”

2. “The University has a responsibility to take proactive measures in order to protect the health and well-being of every member of our community”

3. “You don't have to go home but you can't stay here.”

4. “Harvard College students will be required to move out of their Houses and First-Year dorms as soon as possible and no later than Sunday, March 15 at 5:00pm”

5. “We realize that leaving campus at short notice will be challenging for some of you.”

6. “So gather up your jackets, and move it to the exits”

7. “Public health experts have advised us that the best way to delay the virus transmission and to contain any breakout is to decrease the number of people on our campus”

8. “I hope”


1. Semisonic -- but it might as well have been in the email

2. Harvard -- can also be found in The Office opening featuring “Closing Time”

3. Semisonic -- also Khurana's TLDR that was removed in final edits

4. Harvard -- but little known fact, this little logistical ditty was the original bridge of "Closing Time"!

5. Harvard -- it’s not a 1-to-1 pattern, ha!

6. Semisonic -- Also removed in Khurana's final edits when the weather got warmer

7. Harvard -- but if you sing it to the tune of “Closing Time” you can hardly tell a difference!

8. Both!
