Dear Bay Weekly:
This lipdub, as it’s called, was done by over 400 Emerson College students. Daniel Manning [Bay Weekly 2010 Calverton High School intern] is not a main character, but he managed to be in a fairly visible place, at 2:54.
The video was posted on December 9; as of December 11, it had already received almost 46,000 hits. This many hits tells me that this is a new genre that people will copy; you’ve heard it here.
