This is awesome beyond words! Residents from Clark Retirement Community in Grand Rapids teamed up with college students to lipdub a music video. Try not to smile while watching them travel through the center’s locker room, gym, pool, hot tub and more – all with a healthy sense of humor. A guy holds a bag of Depends undergarments, only to have them stolen by a woman on a hovaround scooter! This deserves to go viral if only out of respect! You won’t want to miss a moment.
According to Mlive.com, the video was shot over the course of three hours on June 28th. They did eight takes, and the third one was the best. The budget came in at about $2,500 which largely went towards the extensive set decorations and some costumes. (Some others came from a theater company.) But the enthusiasm and vigor that really sells the video? The adorable residents themselves!
Two things to note: 1) there are no video edits… it’s literally all one take! and 2) maybe living in a retirement community won’t be so bad – this place is crammed with amenities!!
It’s quite impossible to decide which screengrabs to show, so I put a few here… then make sure to watch the video!!
