LipDub

I guess the Lip Dub fever is not over yet, while browsing on KWAD9 (Disclaimer: I work for KWAD9) I stumbled on a post of a member of the community that shared this YouTube video clip of a Japanese I Got a Feeling lip dub as a response to the popular UQAM lip dub that made it on CNN.

I find this incredible that the video not only made it to the other side of the world, it was so powerful that it inspired other students to make a video response to it! Welcome to the Social Media Revolution people! This is proof of the impact of social media in the real world, across borders, and how powerful it can be.

The this LipDub from Japan was created by students of the Nihon University, College of Art. According to their YouTube description, they shot it on October 20th 2009 because they were so excited about the work of Université du Québec À Montréal.

The video use the same song: “I Got a Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas (B.E.P) and features a lot of Japanese stereotypes. You gotta love the Pokemon and Dragon Ball characters jumping and dancing around.

I personally think that the UQAM lip dub was better but it is so refreshing to see how it inspired others. What do you think of the video/response?
