  • NAU freshman Evan Genuise went viral this week with a short, 7-second clip of his now-famous dormitory door, rigged to play musical cues from the 1990s sitcom “Seinfeld” when people enter. Featured in Time and Buzzfeed with on-air segments by Good Morning America and ABC15, the video currently has more than 50,000 retweets.
