Jonathan Desnick '14, founder of the "Yale Vuvuzelas Against Harvard" movement and creator of a 74-member Facebook group by the same name, ordered 700 custom-made horns for The Game out of his own pocket. Desnick expressed disappointment at Harvard's decision to outlaw the South African horns in an interview Tuesday night. Desnick said he is selling the vuvuzelas to promote school pride and "level the playing field."

"I recognize the vuvuzelas would've been annoying, but the positives outweighed the negatives," he said. "I never thought of them being banned."
He said he was only been able to sell around 50 vuvuzelas for $6 each before the ban took place, and could not make a profit after his initial investment. Desnick said he still plans to sell the horns to students who ask for them, and has decided to give all money from vuvuzela sales to charity.
