Lindsay LipDub

On May 31st thousands (about 9300) of people gathered in my hometown of Lindsay, Ontario, Canada to take part in the World's Largest and Canada's FIRST City LipDub. For those who aren't familiar with the concept it is a video shot in ONE continuous shot and it brought young and old, locals and visitors and tons of smiling faces together in an incredible achievement. The day finished with the Concert for Change featuring Hedley, which I had the pleasure of attending with my amazing nephew!

Check out the Lindsay LipDub here

Congratulations to organizers and the community on coming together for a job well done!
