Lip Dub Battle

The 'Lip Dub' has become one of the hottest trends on YouTube.... The most popular 'Lip Dubs' include one person with one camera, in constant motion, shooting an unedited video of a group of people as they lip sync to a popular song (typically a different person sings each line...).

Trent Mitchell, the video production class teacher at Shorecrest High School in Shoreline, Washington, organized over 200 student to shoot a 'Lip Dub' video of the popular song 'Hey Ya' by Outkast.

Not to be outdone, Marty Ballew, the video production class teacher at Shorewood High School, Shorecrest's crosstown rival, organized over 500 students to shoot a 'Lip Dub' video of the oldie, but goodie, 'You Make My Dreams Come True' by Hall and Oates. Shorewood's video had a significant twist, the video was shot in reverse! Not only did they shoot the video in reverse, the students learned how to sing the song backwards! It's incredible! At the end of the Shorewood High School 'Lip Dub' video, a challenge is proposed: 'Try and beat that Shorecrest!'

Turns out, both teachers are childhood friends.... I can't wait to see what comes next!


  1. The latter video is just like Coldplay's video for 'The Scientist'. Total headfuck. Are they lip-syncing backwards or are they just saying the last word in the sentence/line first?

    This could take some time for me to figure out.


  2. In an interview, the teacher had said that the students learned how to sing the song backwards....

  3. that second video was crazy and awesome. I love that song too. I hate the song "hey ya" and I also hate "shake it like a polaroid picture," I'm not that fond of outkast altogether.
    I wonder if the other school is gonna top that?
    good find.

  4. Not bad Hey-Ya mix. But why would you choose a Hall and Oates song for a reply? LOL. I do like the way they played it in reverse that was pretty ingenious.

  5. Why choose 'Hall and Oates'!?!?!?! Because they're awesome! Come on! 'Maneater'?!?!?! 'Private Eyes'?!?!?! 'Rich Girl'?!?!?!?

    Hall and Oates 2012!!!!
