video: Algonquin Athletes Go Viral In Lip Dub Video

Thursday, March 07, 2013

 

It's always a good time at Algonquin Regional High School in Northborough. The school's students have become overnight minor YouTube sensations for their lip dub video of Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen's song "Good Time."

"Our goal was to bring as many students together as possible, from students involved in sports to those involved in extracurricular activities," said Algonquin Senior Giles Ober, who also serves as captain of the school's lacrosse team.

Ober and fellow seniors Nic Zanghi and Sam Huddart took on the challenge of creating the first-ever Algonquin Regional Lib Dub as a year-long project for their Marketing Research class at the suggestion of a teacher. In order to achieve their goal, the students promoted the project through Twitter, Facebook, posters, school announcements and video blogs.

Over the course of five months and two filming sessions, Ober, Zanghi and Huddart worked to direct and produce this video. Mike Davis, a 2011 graduate of Algonquin, filmed and edited the video for them.

"We broke the filming down into two separate dates, one day in December dedicated to extracurricular activities and clubs, and the second day in January dedicated to all the sports teams," Ober said.

The video was released on Monday, March 4, and by the evening of Wednesday, March 6, it had already racked up over 18,000 views on YouTube.

"To say the video was a success would be an understatement. We've received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback and have been contacted by numerous local media outlets," Ober said. "Our goal is to leave behind a legacy for new students to come, and so far we're on the right track.

"Next week, we will be attending the state DECA conference in Boston, which is a nation-wide organization that prepares students like us for careers in marketing, finance, hospitality and management. When we go to the state conference, we will have the chance to qualify for the national conference this May in Anaheim, CA."
