The Lakota East National Honor Society organized the "lip dub" shoot to help raise money for the Center for Spina Bifida Care at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. It was a large-scale, multi-song music production combining lip-syncing with audio dubbing.

More than 12 minutes long, the finished product includes several songs, choreography, matching T-shirts, and seems to incorporate every nook and cranny of the Lakota East school building--from hallways to classrooms.

The filming took place from a helicopter in order to help get 1,700 people in the video.

Patients from the Spina Bifida Coalition of Cincinnati, University of Cincinnati President Santa Ono and 9 On Your Side traffic reporter Adam Marshall appear in the video.

Even before the video shoot, the school district had already raised more than $10,000 for the cause.
