I'm going to regret this, but:

(1) he's passed out drunk on a strange couch. You see no reason that, in and of itself, wouldn't be embarrassing to have plastered all over the internet?

(2) that strange couch happens to be in a fraternity house of a rival school. This shows such exceedingly poor judgment that it compounds 1 significantly.

(3) some dude's nasty balls are being rubbed on his face. I know this is technically akin to a sort of mild sexual assualt, and let's not blame the victim blah blah blah, but that's still humiliating.
