VIDEO: It’s Contractors vs. Architects in this Rap Battle for the ages
Posted By Marcia Gruver Doyle On November 21, 2013 @ 10:09 am In Construction News | No Comments
We’ve heard variations of this thought throughout the years from contractors (insert “engineer” for “architect” and you’ve got the same basic riff from the earthmoving crowd).
Window-manufacturer YKK AP America (they also make doors and curtain walls) is using the butting-heads atmosphere that can sometimes develop on the jobsite as the basis for a fun video. Obviously inspired by the viral YouTube series “Epic Rap Battles of History,”  YKK AP has created a rap battle for the jobsite between a contractor and an architect that’s dead-on in many ways. (See video below.)
In it, there’s plenty of back-and-forth sass.
Architect: “You need to quit cutting corners trying to save a buck./You make a good bid/I couldn’t decline/but let me teach you how to dress and respect design.”
Contractor: “Listen here, pretty boy, you got me all wrong/go back to your office where you belong/Without me, all you’d have are plans and specs.”
With the video titled “I am an Architect, part 2: Architect vs. Contractor,” YKK AP’s target audience is obviously architects, but they are giving everyone the chance to vote on who won the video battle. 
My one beef: they could have gotten a better dancer to represent the contractors.
