Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler’s new movie has totally ripped off Bucknell’s logo
Buckley University? They didn’t even change the address
In a recent trailer released by MTV for Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler’s new movie, The House, the couple’s daughter gets accepted into a university called “Buckley University.”
But that header looks really familiar, doesn’t it Bucknellians?
Especially, if we zoom in and see that Buckley University admissions office is located at 1 Dent Drive, Lewisburg PA, 17837.
Even the phone number is the same as Bucknell’s admissions office: 570-577-3000.
Better yet is Will Ferrell’s shirt that he reveals the minute his daughter gets into Buckley U, because most Bucknellians own one that looks like strikingly similar.
They even included a bison pun.
Either this was one hell of a photoshop fail or their fictional daughter is totally going to Bucknell not Buckley, which, given that the movie is about a pair of parents who open an illegal casino to try to pay for their daughter’s education, is pretty freaking accurate.
$64k a year? I might be opening an underground casino pretty soon, too.
