Video: Kentucky athletes lip dub "Dynamite"

When on video, what's the difference between a flash mob and a lip dub? I haven't the slightest idea, another sign I'm aging far too quickly. Regardless, below we've got video of hundreds of University of Kentucky student-athletes who put together a lip dub collaboration of Taio Cruz's "Dynamite," a song that's already taken over clubs, birthday parties, sports arenas and mitzvahs across the nation. And will continue to do so for years to come. It's the pop song that hooks in people regardless of age, race, background or breakfast preference.

Many members of Kentucky's men's basketball team, including Terrence Jones (who may not be on campus much longer) and Josh Harrellson make an appearance around the 1:15 mark. The video was made as an introduction to the 2011 Catspy Awards, an annual on-campus event. All 22 Kentucky-sanctioned sports teams are featured, including the cheerleading and dance squads. It was done in one take, making it more impressive than the fact Harrellson didn't try to ham up more than 10 seconds of the video. (We love us some Jorts, of course.)

A reminder, yet again, that college is the greatest time of your life, and you'll never experience such a combination of happiness and freedom ever again.

That is a very cool video. I was pleased to see Kentucky Basketball do what they did last season. Back to a top notch program. How many Duke and N Carolina rivalries can you watch each season, so sick of watching them. I remember the first college game i went to was in Rupp Arena when Travis Ford and Tony Delk lead the helm. The crowd was holding up paper 3s and would chant the same as any player shot from behind the arch. The crowd was electric coursing through the Arena. It was amazing. Great video Cats. Keep up the good work!

I'm sure they would. But Duke has their own network...ESPN.

ok I am a huge UL fan, but I have to give up to UK students on this one.  That was a really cool video that was made by the UK students. I just dont understand why it is on the cbs website front page. I just wonder if CBS would do the same for Duke or N. Carolina or some other school that made a video.
