On Saturday March 26, 2011, over one thousand university students, high-school students, and community members are coming together to rock out and show off their special skills — all while lip-synching the words to Pink’s “Raise Your Glass” and Marianas Trench’s* “Celebrity Status” (*possible guest appearance).
This event is called UBC LipDub. Filmed on the Vancouver UBC Campus on from 12:00pm – 7:00pm.
What is a LipDub?
LipDub is a style of YouTube video with a tendency of going viral.
A huge group of students and community members rockin’ out to an awesome song for a day.
