A video posted nearly three years ago of camper reactions to being woken up at 5 a.m. has been sweeping the internet.
The video was posted on July 26, 2012, but started spreading on the internet over the weekend. As of this posting, the video had more than 160,000 views.
Update: Hume Lake Web Administrator Cameron Cadiz reached out to provide some more details about the video. Thanks, Cameron!
This video was created by Hume in 2004. Neither of the guys in the video were counselors, they were actually familiar staff leaders that were on stage, up in front of these kids every day. In the video, they went to a few cabins just after 5AM and woke campers up in (very) odd ways, recording their reactions. Once they got a couple shots, they left that cabin (the kids didn’t actually have to get up at 5AM). A video was created from some of the funnier clips, and put on the end-of-the-week DVD that they got to take home. Although it was entertaining eleven years ago, Hume no longer does wake-up videos.
