McGill MBA LipDub 2010: Giving A Little Love

McGill MBA LipDub 2010: Giving A Little Love

The very first LipDub in the history of McGill’s MBA program celebrates the spirit of Movember

[Press Release by Celestyn Wong]

29 November 2010, Montreal – While most MBA candidates spent a Sunday completing their finance assignments or leafing through a new chapter from the organizational behavior textbook, something quite different was brewing in McGill’s Bronfman Building. Led by first-year student Jun Yeo, 90 McGill MBA students and professors participated in the inaugural LipDub of McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management. The LipDub – perfected in just four takes – was filmed and edited by Charlie Bern, a second-year student, rounding up a production that was wholly conceptualized and executed by the energies of a committed student body.

Choreographed to the tune of Tom Jones’ Give a Little Love, the LipDub was primarily conceived to aid Movember, a global movement dedicated to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer. Said Jun, “We wanted to show the world how giving just a little love every single day of our lives could be the start of something big, and more importantly, something that reminds us never to forget to give back to society. When I first proposed the idea of a LipDub, I knew I didn’t want it to be a run-of-the-mill event where we just jump around for a few minutes and elicit a couple of laughs. We wanted this to be different and we incorporated our idea of paying it forward into the LipDub, all the while making sure everyone who participated would have a fun and unforgettable experience.”

Going live on 26 November, the LipDub drew a strong number of hits on the Internet almost immediately; it even secured features on the LipDubTube and Montreal Gazette websites. The final cut showcases an entertaining moustache count of the participants on screen, with one scene presenting an unshaven Tom Jones doppelganger and another featuring the “Super McGill brothers,” also with impressive manes on their upper lips. Bursting with vivacity and exuberance, 32 nationalities are represented in the LipDub, underscoring the broad diversity of backgrounds that participants bring to McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management’s MBA program. As the camera moves through the third floor of the Bronfman Building, doors open into tongue-in-cheek parodies and corners turn into scenes that allude to an iconic pastiche of political, current affairs, and sporting caricatures.

“This LipDub grew from being the baby of the X-Team committee to a project that the entire MBA cohort believed in and supported. We wanted to produce something that would crystallize our McGill MBA experience, demonstrate our passion for giving back to the community and also show another side of us as business students,” said Charlie.

Equally proud of the achievement of the MBA students is the Faculty itself: “On behalf of the Dean and the Faculty, I congratulate our Desautels MBA students for such a fantastic and creative approach to raising awareness and funds for important causes. The Give a Little Love LipDub is an excellent expression of the values we wish to uphold at the Desautels Faculty of Management, including integrity, responsibility, and giving back to our communities,” said Don Melville, Director of McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management’s MBA and Masters Programs.

McGill Desautels MBA LipDub (MOvember)

Watch the Desautels McGill MBA LipDub now:

We chose to do our MBA in McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management because we wanted to change the world in our own little way. We wanted to show the world how giving a little love every single day of your life can be the start of something big. And this video was born.

Like the song goes, “You’ve got to give a little love” – we hope to inspire you to do the same by giving love in any little way you can. Let’s start with Movember. Help our MoGill Team, headed by MBA Candidate Neil Perk, by donating any amount you can, so we can raise awareness for the invaluable research for prostate cancer. We chose to film our lipdub video in the month of November, with our moustaches growing in full strength. Try and spot how many of us have our moustache on!

Donate to our MoGill team now!

The LipDub project was dreamed up on 30 September 2010 by MBA student Jun Yeo, and together with fellow student Charlie Bern, she formed the LipDub X-Team committee consisting of Anurag Thakur, Artem Luhovy, Carmen Marron Lopez, Daniel Kramer-Stein, Hernan Ciechanowiecki, Juan Cuello, Judy Cai, Kent Turner, Maria Ponomareva, Molly Holmes, Pat Tenneriello, Raman Sodhi, Saurabh Malhotra and Wissam Shaar. In less than 2 months, the X-Team planned, choreographed and mobilized over 80 participants, which included MBA First-Year students, MBA Second-Year students, MBA exchange students, MBA Alumni, and Desautels Professor Omar Toulan, Professor Tamer Boyaci, Professor Sujata Madan, and Professor Jui Ramaprasad.

The video moves through the MBA floor (Level 3) of McGill’s Bronfman Building on 1001 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal, Quebec, to the beat of Tom Jone’s infectious single “Give A Little Love”.
