BU LipDub 2009, In All its Glory

As promised, we’re reposting the video of the BU LipDub on the Quad for all of our readers to see. For more information on the background and creation of the LipDub, read our coverage of the event. And yes, Dean Elmore is in it.

Here’s more info about the video from the bulipdub YouTube Channel Page:

On a chilly day in early December 2009, over 120 students from different walks of life at Boston University came together to make a LipDub video to two of Jackson 5s famous songs: I Want You Back and ABC. As with all LipDub videos, the music video is recorded all in one take, with careful coordination between all of the students to ensure a fluid, exciting video.

The video took just over a month to organize and shoot, and it truly was a group effort, with cooperation from the university administration, buildings and grounds, student activities office, and many more divisions on campus.

Boston University is located in the heart of Boston and is a private, nonsectarian, coeducational research university. BU has more than 4,000 faculty members and more than 18,000 undergraduate students.

  2. WOW! This is the most school spirit and highest concentration of sorority girls I’ve ever seen at BU, and I went there! Jokes aside, that was a phenomenally organized and choreographed video. You made an alumna proud!

    Well done,
