That Synch'ing Feeling

Looks like these guys got an entire apartment complex to participate in a lipdub of The Beatles' "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da".

Here in Furniture City, it was recently announced that Rob Bliss, an event coordinator and promoter in my home city of Grand Rapids, MI is planning a massive lipdub as well to happen sometime in 2011. It's going to be set to Don Mclean's nearly nine-minute-long 1971 epic "American Pie", and is supposed to feature marching bands, a large pillow fight, a football game, kayakers in the Grand River, Metro Cruise cars, swing dancers, Fifth Third River Bank runners, a helicopter take-off, and crowds spelling out “Experience Grand Rapids,”to name a few things. While I'm not wild about the song choice (can't we update to something a little more recent than this 40-year-old chestnut?), it still sounds like a fun experience that I might try to get in on.

As long as I'm giving shout-outs to local lip-synching, I found a pretty good video ("So Much Love" by The Summer Rockets) done by the students of Calvin College, also here in Grand Rapids, which, judging by this video, seems to have the most wholesomely attractive student body I have ever seen...
