No, It's not political, but it sure is fun. Was sent to me by friend at network. See below why the whole thing is really a video work of art.
It's something you will see as you watch it.... but may not realize what you are really seeing
The whole thing is one long shot. 3:32 and no cuts!
From a video perspective, amazing!
What’s the “I heart SK” on everyone’s shirt?
They are a high school, in Paris, France, of all places.
Wow no kidding one long shot no kidding. Kids without A.D D.
Okay...that was fun to watch! Thanks for posting it...:)
I went to high school in the first half of the ‘60s and I didn’t recognize any of that. The second part of the video was vaguely familiar.
There was a big difference between the early ‘60s and the late. And an even bigger difference with the ‘70s. And IMO, it wasn’t an improvement as time went on.
Grand Rapids Mi can be proud of this lip sync. (Miss American Pie)
When it was making the rounds at Master Control at CBS, the techs watched it a few times for “fun” then one screamed “Damn!” and they all watched it again in amazement!
They must have been hiding all the fat kids. Oh, wait. This was not in the U.S. of A. No wonder....
There are no ugly kids at this high school.
That was fun — thanks!
I would love to see that same group of kids do “The Time Warp” from Rocky Horror...
Doesn’t fit, I graduated from college before 1960!
“They are a high school, in Paris, France, of all places”
Thanks for that tidbit of information. As I watched the video, I was amazed at the lack of overweight kids and wondered where the students and high school were located.
It was all rather easy until the camera cart move at 3:55+, then it got really interesting!
Is this another video from the GSA?
Thanks! I always enjoy your posts.
Hiding all the fat kids?
A few years ago 90% or more of the high school population was thin.
Back in the early 70’s even the minorities were thin.
Check out this youtube video from 1974:
It took me a moment to figure it out, but I got it at the end when I saw the credits.
Here is an English link to ESSCA, which is a business college.
"I heart SK" is short for "I heart ESSCA," where "ESSCA" sounds like the letters "S-K."
Until the hippies arrived, high school was like Leave It To Beaver, not Grease, LOL.
Man! That kid is wearing a REAL diaper too! No pampers!!!!! I bet he grew up to be the Indiana Jones prototype.
What else is missing.... besides the graffiti.... I can’t pinpoint it... hmmm... they all look like they will all be successful... hmmmm... still not getting it...
Moi aussi! If anyone went to High School in the mid to late 60s, 70s, or heaven forfend, the 80s, they are more intellectually akin to 6th Graders of our day; not very bright 6th graders.
Today, they are the tattooed, obese, badly dressed hordes in the Wal-Mart parking lots of our once fair land. Obama people!
Ah well. Not their fault then, is it? More likely ours.
lol! did I miss seeing a blonde?
Seriously the school is VERY segregated. Was this a private high school in France?
Very nice. Reminds me of that long video of the Black Eyed Peas I’ve Got a Feeling done by some college kids here in the U.S.
Went back and watched the video again...blondes were present.
absolutely INCREDIBLE ... the “most entertaining” thing I’ve seen all week ...
I’ll call your big wheel and raise ya roller skates that tightened with a key. 1950’s baby. :-)
THAT is awesome.
I’ve got a brand new pair of roller skates, you’ve got a brand new key. (1971)
I was just a youngster but it was on the radio all the time along with “Rose Garden”.
Very cute, but not remotely like the 60,s...but still cute.
LOL...you just had to remember that Gawd awful song. All both of them. :-)
Yes it was...I lived the ‘happy days.’ Good times, good times.
This is one of my favorite things :-)
Thanks, this is cool! :-)
Thanks for posting this. Nice change of pace, and good job by the kids!
Thank you for the post on Rita Hayworth....she was beautiful!!!
Thanks for the awesome video! Total fun!!!
Holy Cow, that was spectacular.
I can’t imagine the logistics involved in creating that production.
What a nice PR video for Grand Rapids and for that matter, America.
When was that made?
“Rita Hayworth Is Stayin’ Alive”
A truly gorgeous and talented woman.
I read her favorite movies were the dance vehicles she did with Fred Astaire.
They made that last spring I believe.
Nice video. Well-staged and photographed, for sure. Grease still sucks, tho.
