Where Liberalism Is Alive and Well!

Senior Citizens Are So Cute!

A very good friend of mine and fellow professor produced this “lipdub” with the help of former and current students in the film program where I work. I’m not a huge fan of this new genre, to be honest, but this is really cool. Here are a couple of behind the scenes stories I heard from students. In the week before they shot it (it is one continuous camera move), they were at the retirement home for planning and staging and there was a woman who every day asked them what they were doing. She would forget from one day to the next. And she was one of the leads.

Another woman, I think it was at the pool, couldn’t hear a thing. So a student was set there to cue her, but he kept getting in the shot. They realized that if he winked at her, she would start. So that’s how they got her to do it after several takes. She later said something like, “This handsome kid kept winking at me all day long.” Enjoy!

By the way, you may have seen it on Good Morning America, The Today Show, Inside Edition or many other national newscasts. I guess Youtube is having trouble keeping up with all the hits. There is a backlog, right now it has 512,000 views. It’s a Michael Buble song and he loved it.
