The video starts with Cambridge students 'John Tucker' and 'Jane Doe' standing by a sign for the City of Cambridge
They are among the brightest and the best proudly studying at one of the world's finest universities.
But Cambridge dons are likely to be spluttering with indignation if they switch on the students' new online TV channel.
For taking centre stage both on the site itself and in its news room are two naked presenters.
Student presenters Seb Dunnett, 20, who calls himself John Tucker in the film, and blonde 'Jane Doe', 21, parade in front of tourist attractions including King's College chapel, the university library, and Corpus Christi College.
During the 2.57min clip, filmed and broadcast by Cambridge University Television (CU:TV), dark-haired Seb wears nothing more than a pair of wire-framed glasses.
Calling each other Jane and John, the students sign off with the slogan: 'We've been the Naked News giving you the naked truth'
Both students cycle around the narrow city streets covered by just a black academic robes and strip off entirely in front of the iconic Corpus Christi clock, unveiled in 2008 by Stephen Hawking.
After an opening sequence taking in ancient Cambridge buildings the pair sit naked behind a news desk and read the headlines on topics ranging from Varsity rugby to celebrity gossip.
Finishing off with the weather, Jane quips, 'Make sure you dress up warm, John.'
Calling each other Jane and John they sign off with the slogan: 'We've been the Naked News giving you the naked truth'.
Jane Doe preserves her modesty by sticking blue CU:TV stickers over her nipples and the more graphic frontal shots are covered by another computer-generated image.
Just like other students at the university they cycle around the narrow city street - except without clothes

The students admitted getting some strange looks as they filmed the footage in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Seb, a second-year natural sciences student at Homerton College, said: 'It was pretty unusual thing to see for people on their way to work in the morning. We got a lot of stares.
'I felt a bit nervous but it's a much easier for a guy to take his clothes off than it is for a girl. All respect to Jane.
'I've never done anything like this before but I'd definitely be up for having another go. It feels pretty liberating.'
The female presenter is a second-year natural sciences student who wished only to be known as Jane Doe.
Jane, 21, said the footage was meant to poke fun at Cambridge University students who 'take themselves too seriously'.

She said: 'We want to create comedy personas for John and Jane and move forward in developing them as characters.
'They are trying to be serious newsreaders who take themselves very seriously. It's a bit of a mockery of Cambridge students in general.
'I took quite a lot of convincing from Alana to take all my clothes off - Seb and I don't usually strip off in public.
'I was incredibly nervous and it was very surreal, especially at six in the morning.
We were running around Cambridge just wearing gowns and it was absolutely freezing.
'By the end our feet were completely numb but I'm looking forward to doing the next episode.
'We will have to get up earlier and earlier to avoid more people. But we got quite a good response from the public last time, there was lots of laughing and giggling.'

Since posting the Naked News clip on Thursday, visits to the site, which usually has 50,000 hits a week, have rocketed.
Alana filmed all the scenes for Naked News between 5.30am and 9am and said it was surprisingly easy to talk her friends into posing in the buff.
The third-year English and Drama student from Homerton college said: 'More Cambridge students than you'd expect are keen to get their kit off in front of a camera.
'In the last 24 hours I have had loads of people offering to get involved.
'Cambridge is always seen as very serious and studious and this shows a funny, more relaxed side.
'We spent quite a long time driving around trying to pinpoint the best locations. We wanted a traditional Cambridge feel and a formal situation with ridiculous content.
'We debated whether or not to censor the ruder bits with logos but decided in the end it looked funnier and would make us more accessible.'
Naked News is set to become a regular feature on CU:TV and is likely to feature other guest presenters over the coming weeks.
Cambridgeshire police said they would not stop the students getting naked but warned they would have to investigate if any members of the public complained.
A spokeswoman said: 'I cannot imagine this would be a police matter unless someone complained. All complaints have to be looked into regardless of their origin.'
A Cambridge University spokesman declined to comment.
