uToronto releases student lip dub

April 3, 2012

University of Toronto students have joined their counterparts at other Canadian campuses by producing a lip dub, which made its debut last Thursday. Featuring more than 1,500 students and volunteers, the 7-and-a-half-minute video was shot over 3 days last September, with a re-shoot in February because footage from the Mississauga campus did not meet organizers' standards. There are a number of cuts in the video; while that is not typical of lip dubs, it allowed producers to include all 3 of uToronto's campuses. President David Naylor makes a cameo appearance in the video, donning white sunglasses and dancing the robot alongside a group of cheerleaders. Featuring a variety of electronic dance music, the video has so far garnered nearly 60,000 views on YouTube. Toronto Star | U of T Lip Dub
