Austrian Town Makes Lip-Dub Video After Being Inspired By Grand Rapids [Video]
The mayor of an Austrian city credits Grand Rapids for inspiring his city's lip-dub video.
The Austrian video is 14 minutes long, which is a new world record. More than 6,000 people danced for 10 hours to make it happen.
The mayor of Kapfenburg, Austria, posted the video Wednesday, and thanked Grand Rapids.
"It's my big pleasure for me to send back our best wishes and compliments to Mr. Heartwell and the citizens of Grand Rapids, USA," said Kapfenberg Mayor Manfred Wegscheider. "Watching your great lip-dub has always been our motivation and inspiration."
The song heard in the Austrian lip-dub is "Live Is Life," a 1984 song by the Austrian pop rock group Opus.
