This is a call to arms. The video below, which markets Sioux City (if you’ve been there you know that’s an uphill battle in itself), seems to be getting a pretty ridiculous amount of viral buzz over the last couple days. I’m pretty sure that the world of viral video mimics real life, which would imply that we here in Lincoln should be able to make something bigger, better, nicer-looking, catchier, and viral-er. The one concept I’d keep is people lip-syncing a song. For some reason that formula just works (is there anyone who didn’t love the end of Something About Mary?)
If we can get the right song, it could be perfect. Any ideas? Do we use a tried-and true song or an original Lincoln-inspired song? Imagine Bo Pelini & Tom Osborne showing a little animation. How about Ken Siemek dancing in the street? Mayor Beutler air-guitaring? Let’s make it happen.
