High School Lip Dub Wars

I found this lip dub techno war between Seattle's Shorecrest and Shorewood High Schools to be fascinating and ingenious. The first clip is the original challenge by Shorecrest to its rival Shorewood.

Watch them both. For my money, Shorewood won this lip dub face off. But more importantly, the mastery of technology and the creativity of these kids gives me hope that not all is lost in our youth. Watch them again and see what you think:
