During my 90-minute FOX stopdown last night -- still having a hard time getting around to Running Wilde, which is a decided fall-season disappointment -- there were copious teases for the 9 p.m. news recap of the James Martin High School lip dub featuring everyone at the ginormous school. Alas, forgot all about it, thanks to the miracle of DVR. That is, till this morning, when several Friends of Unfair Park wondered: So, why no mention? Well, all right then. Let's have a look at the 12-minute short film. Hmmm. Arresting indeed, a most welcome addition to the lengthy list of lip dubs throughout history. It's on the other side. So jump. And dance. And sing!
