Grand Rapids LipDub Consequences…

Originally published in the Grand Rapids Press, June 4, 2011

If you haven’t already seen or heard about the Grand Rapids LipDub, you can check it out here on YouTube. It really is a very, very impressive community effort and a convincing counter to Newsweek magazine’s online article last winter that listed Grand Rapids as one of America’s “dying cities.” Leave it to an editorial cartoonist to find a negative in the positive. But honestly, “American Pie” can be such an earworm!

    It’s what we at the office call a “Sound Wedgie”

    I watched the thing thinking that I would see an Auchter. Didn’t find, but well worth the time spent.

    Maybe next time. If they do a Dylan song, I’ll definitely be there.
