The Grand Rapids LipDub (NEW WORLD RECORD)

“The Grand Rapids LipDub Video was filmed May 22nd, with 5,000 people, and involved a major shutdown of downtown Grand Rapids, which was filled with marching bands, parades, weddings, motorcades, bridges on fire, and helicopter take offs. It is the largest and longest LipDub video, to date.

This video was created as an official response to the Newsweek article calling Grand Rapids a “dying city.” We disagreed strongly, and wanted to create a video that encompasses the passion and energy we all feel is growing exponentially, in this great city. We felt Don McLean’s “American Pie,” a song about death, was in the end, triumphant and filled to the brim with life and hope.” – Rob Bliss, Director & Executive Producer

  1. Woot! My home town is awesome.

  2. My hometown, too.
    Go G-Rap! Home of Pres. Gerald Ford; Love Wins author Rob Bell; Zondervans, Baker & Eerdmans publishers; and a lot of really nice people. Oh, and Dave Rozema, rookie of the year Tiger baseball pitcher back in the day.
    Yes, the lip-syncing was a little off, but remember, this was one CONTINUOUS lip-dub.
