October 18th 2018- Students at O. Henry Middle School did their annual Lip Dub for fun on the 18th of October. Some 8th grade students were doing a lip sync to music around the school while 6th and 7th graders danced in the background. It was the third annual lip dub.

The leader of the lip dub was Mr. Shackelford (aka Mr. Shack). He put a lot of effort into the lip dub with music and just being organized. “At first I was not so sure how to it,” said Mr. Shack. He got the idea by watching other schools perform on YouTube. Then he got Ms. Mallot to approve.

The music is a hard thing as well. One, it has to be a appropriate, and YouTube has to approve it. “The first year we did it we played a Rihanna song and YouTube did not approve which was why it was on Google Drive,” said Shackelford. The music has to not just be clean but appropriate for middle schoolers.

On the day of the dub everything went as planned and everyone was there to sing. One ACES class wore clout goggles and tossed them to the performers singing. In other ACES classes people dressed up in silly costumes like a llama or gorilla. Before the final, the students ran through two practices to get it just right.

The Lip Dub seemed like everything went perfect. The Lip Dub video was released at the Homecoming pep rally. The eighth graders ended it by waving their phones with the flashlight on, like a concert.
