The Grand Rapids LipDub: Russian Ark, American Style

The following film, as a single tracking shot, put me in mind of Russian Ark. It was filmed on May 22nd in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Roger Ebert calls it “The greatest music video ever made.” I wouldn’t go anywhere near that far. Has Ebert, for example, never seen Milli Vanilli’s “Girl You Know It’s True“?

Just kidding.

But the below video is pretty darn moving. Maybe even special.
