What do you get when you put 4 scholars in animal onesies and tell them to lip sync to Iggy Azalea’s Fancy?
Some of you may have seen it, while some of you may have not. If you have not you should probably watch it before you read this if you want to laugh your face off: Click here for the video!
Anyway, Shelby got contacted from a former classmate about a new show they are trying to get on MTV called Lip Sync Wars. They were looking for lip-syncing teams of Americans living in Dublin. They are filming the pilot in Dublin and thought it would be cool to have some residents or whatever you want to call us in it! They (and by they I have no idea who I am referring to) told us that because we have a cool backstory we have a good chance of making it! I never thought coming to Dublin as a Victory Scholar with Sport Changes Life would bring me this opportunity. Who knew that mentoring, coaching and playing would directly translate into lip syncing!
So off we went. We knew we wanted to look ridiculous so Jen and I bought onsies at Penny’s (they should really sell these things at home in more places). I found a flamingo one and Jen was a leopard. Katie had a tiger and Shelby was a cow. I am laughing out loud right now thinking about how ridiculous this sounds. We had no idea what we wanted to do for the video so we just sort of walked around campus at Trinity. We ended up filming on the tennis courts, right in the front gate and in the middle of Dublin on Grafton Street. It was hilarious watching people stare at us and not know whether to laugh or be horrified.
Since Monday I have had the song stuck in my head nonstop. By now I know the lyrics but had no idea what they were on Monday (LOL). We are waiting to hear back from the producers if they want our fabulous group to move on to the next round or not, so everyone cross your fingers! After years of living as an undiscovered talent this might just be my big break! I might finally make it to Broadway (HA!).
