The Grand Rapids LipDub

By Gerard @presurfer
American film critic and screenwriter Roger Ebert called this 'The Greatest Music Video Ever Made.' The Grand Rapids LipDub video was filmed May 22nd, with 5,000 people, and involved a major shutdown of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA, which was filled with marching bands, parades, weddings, motorcades, bridges on fire, and helicopter take offs.
Participants were lip-synching to Don McLean's 'American Pie.' The video was created as an official response to a Newsweek article calling Grand Rapids a 'dying city.'
