University Of Victoria

On September 25, 2010, almost 1000 students at the University of Victoria (UVic) in BC (Canada) came together to film a lipdub. They were inspired by the AMAZING lipdub put together by the other UVIC in Spain. “This is a chance for us in Victoria to really show what we can do,” said Shawn Slavin, a student at UVic and the brains behind the project.
