This is the academia remix of Judge Dredd. UC Berkeley genetics professor Jasper Rine had his laptop nicked by a student, presumably after an exam paper. In the next lecture, Rine calls out the thief in front of the class and unveils some details about all the nasty government and industry heavies he works for when not playing the role of mild-mannered biology professor — and how all those nasties have vested interest in recovering some top secret data on that laptop.
Althouth, Rine's rendition of "fear factor" was probably a farce... I think it's an absolutely brilliant ploy to scare the living daylights out of the boy to get the laptop returned. Download the mp3 file for yourself.
