leave your inhibitions at the door
I’m really digging this lip dub craze. It’s where big groups of people lip-synch a song and edit it to create a music video. Think of it as being like Milli Vanilli, but on a larger scale. And honest about it.
The first one I ever saw was this one, featuring one of my favorite Guilty Pleasure songs –
There are thousands of them on YouTube, mostly done by high school and college groups. Some of them are really well thought out while others are just a bunch of people barely getting through the song. Whatever the relative merits are, they all look like the participants had a blast doing them. Here’s one from UBC-Vancouver that looks to be a promo to get high schoolers to go there.
It’s a really innovative way to showcase the collective creativity and the general “fun-ness” of a place. It’s hard to say whether anyone would make their decision on which college to go to based on this video. However I can say that, seeing that I went to an all-boys high school, the ladies at the 3:20 mark would’ve done the trick for me.
By far THE BEST ONE EVER is this wedding proposal that was performed live. A lot of work must’ve gone into this to pull it off and it’s absolutely brilliant. Any of you guys out there thinking about creative ways to propose to your girlfriend – the bar has officially been raised. You’re better off making sure she doesn’t see it…
Have you seen any other really good ones?
