"It`s called "lip-synching" dumbasses."

Not in Grand Rapids c/o Amway, where everything is slightly off, vanilla, and lame.

The DeVos family founded Amway. DeVos`s name is on everything in Grand Rapids.

AMWAY IS A CULT.

Google it. Google "Amway is a cult."

NOW YOU UNDERSTAND GRAND RAPIDS.

It was a cool video but it doesn`t make me want to visit Grand Rapids. It gives me no reason to do so. It just shows that they have a couple hundred cool people and some businesses who will drop some cash to make a video.

Its not Grand Rapids that has been hit hardest, it is our entire state. We have the worst economy out of all 50 states. We also have the 1st and 3rd most dangerous cities in the entire country. Really sad because honestly it`s a beautiful state, but when they took the automobile industry out of here it has just gotten worse and worse. My friend just bought a 4 bedroom house for 8,000 dollars. We don`t have many positive things left here. As for the video, Grand Rapids is a wonderful little city. I live in another small good city not too far, in Clio. But I really worry about how bad things are going to get before they get better. In montrose PETA has offered to donate money to help the schools if they agree to advertise on the locker doors.

Beyond awesome, two funny lols...5:35 drop drummed and 6:00 black golf shirt way off (everyone else seemed mostly on). BTW Roger Ebert said best music video of all time, can`t say I disagree.

that was very well done completely in the spirit of community ....one question though ...why wouldn`t you use the original artist Don Mclean`s version of the song?

That was excellent. it was great to see so many people getting together to create something so beautiful and so American.

On the flipside, I ain`t never going to Grand Rapids. It must be boring because why else would they have so much free time on their hands?

When I think of Michigan, I think of racists...
*******************************
When I think of Canadians I think of weird people that can`t talk right... Eh

I don`t think this video accurately captured the horrendous accents.
PS Where can I get a t-shirt with Bill Steffen`s face on it? omg
***********************
Being that you know who Bill Steffen is, I`d imagine your from somewhere near Grand Rapids.. can`t imagine him being to popular outside of the area.

Anyway, regardless of if you like the song or not, most of you I imagine appreciate what they went through to put the video together. To have basically one long shot like they used without any edits and to cover the amount of area that did was a pretty clever and well thought out shoot.

Poor Grand Rapids been hit harder by the recession than just about anywhere. You can buy a 5 bedroom house there for less than a used car.
