Lip Dubs

posted by Nell Minow

As usual, I only find out about something after it has passed from cool and edgy to “so yesterday,” but I think lip dubs are adorable, my favorite viral video project since the complaints choirs.

These are short videos made by people in offices, lip-synching to pop and rock songs. It has to involve a group and appear spontaneous and most of them are made in one bravura continuous take.

Lip dubs have been made by schools and families. Even a movie star or two get into the act:

I love the creativity and spirit and I especially love the way you get a sense of these different office environments. Makes me wish I was still a Cub Scout Den Mother — we would be all over this!

    Ah, Scout skits and elementary school talent shows – the very steaming hotbed of lip synching. I believe it will be with us forever, along with airguitar and drums. O how many of us have practiced in a hidden mirror our Mick Jagger pout to any of the Stones hits. It is fun, and definetly wierd to watch the next generations identify and mimic their stars. But we’ve all done it, and we all love watching others do it.

    Yes, jestrfyl, we’ve all sung into a hairbrush or in the shower! There’s a rock star deep within all of us.
