Mark W. Smith of the Freep picked his Top Viral Videos of 2011 from YouTube. While there’s a number of nationwide hits, he highlighted a few Michigan ones.
We featured Chrysler’s Super Bowl ad smash Imported from Detroit (starring Eminem) and the fantastic Grand Rapids Lip Dub (starring pretty much the entire city of Grand Rapids) on Absolute Michigan when they came out, but it looks like we may have missed the best of them all! Mark writes:
Billed as the first lipdub to feature senior citizens, this clip of a Grand Rapids retirement community drew national attention in July. The clip was produced with help from students at nearby Grand Valley State University.
It features his grandparents, but with 1.2 million views, Mark’s not alone and we think you’ll agree, this is one awesome video… (if you have another we missed, post it in the comments)
