Lip dub videos have become increasingly popular on YouTube.  Everyone seems to be doing them, from high schools to molecular geneticists and everyone in between.  But the group that put together this lip dub that is going viral today may surprise you—it was created by the Clark Retirement Community in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  As far as we know, this is the world’s first senior citizen lip dub and it’s pretty flippin’ fantastic.

According to the video description on YouTube, “Residents from Clark Retirement Community in Grand Rapids, Michigan team[ed] up with Grand Valley State University Film & Video Production students, alumni, and professors to create this sassy video to the jazzy-sweet contemporary crooning of Michael Bublé.”

This isn’t the first lip dub from Grand Rapids, Michigan to go viral.  Back in May, the streets of downtown Grand Rapids were shut down to make a world record-breaking lip dub in response to a Newsweek article that reported that Grand Rapids was a “dying city.”

The ‘Clark Retirement Community LibDub’, which hit YouTube on Tuesday, has been viewed 223,000 times so far.  Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments below.  I think this is one of the best lipdubs to hit YouTube so far, not to mention a fantastic promotion for this retirement community.  When I’m old enough, I’d like to go live at Clark!  It looks like a blast, doesn’t it?
