By Chris Spargo For Dailymail. Text messages exchanged between two Penn State students suggests that one of the pledging rituals the young men of Beta Theta Pi had to undergo was the elephant walk. That involves a group of men lining up, holding the penis of the person in front of or behind them and then walking around, a practice that has long been rumored to be a part of pledging rituals but seldom confirmed. In some instances, the individuals will hold the erect penis of the person behind them while sometimes inserting their thumb in the sphincter of the individual in front of them in line. It appears to be confirmed in this case by Penn State's Beta Theta Pi president Brendan Young, who spoke about it in a text exchange with Maddie Miller two months before the death of year-old pledge Timothy Piazza at the fraternity house. That is when Miller wrote: 'If ever there was a time for an elephant walk it would be rn. Young responded that it was his 'least favorite part of pledging and then wrote to Miller the next day: 'I'm burnt out from hazing.
Top definition. I can never tell anyone about the date rapes in this fraternity or they will tell everyone that I participated in an elephant walk during hazing. My butt still hurts weeping. A group dance, generally used as a hazing activity. Put one thumb in your mouth and the other in the asshole of the person in front of you. Everybody does this so that it forms a loop. You proceed to dance around in a circle. Should anyone's thumb become dislodged from the ass of the person in front of them, they must switch thumbs. I heard AEPi makes their pledges do the elephant walk. Done naked, post rugby game, opponents welcome.
