A music video parody made by a group of BYU students that pokes fun at BYU and Provo stereotypes has become a YouTube hit.

The video, called "Provo, Utah Girls — Divine Comedy," has been viewed close to 100,000 times since it was posted less than a week ago.

It's a parody of the popular Katy Perry song, "California Gurls," and the video's creator Mallory Everton says the idea and lyrics popped in her head during the summer when she was back at home in Portland, Ore.

Cute video. I didn't find it offensive, it's all in fun. I didn't like the lyrics or vocals as much as BYU-I Girls on iTunes, but it's cute.

I thought the video was cute! Those of us who have gone to BYU will recognize some harsh truths shown in the video. However, they need to remove the line about the students being "white". That is very offensive to me, as there are students at BYU from the entire world. They make it sound like white is great! Pretty narrow thinking on someone's part.

It is good to be able to laugh at ourselves.

Really cute, girls. Non-members probably won't "catch-on" to most of this video, but it's really precious...especially the part about marrying a tree as long as it had done a mission. I didn't notice the comment about BYU being white. Oh, well, we're all brothers and sisters.

Everyone's got a different line. For me, this crossed it a little.
