WATCH: Katy Perry tweets Lakewood High School’s “Roar” videoBy Julio Enriquez | September 26th, 2013 | 2 comments
Katy Perry tweeted out an incredible “Roar” video made by Lakewood High School on Wednesday, saying “Oh my GAWD.” More than 2,000 students participated in the school spirit-filled “lip dub” of Katy Perry’s new single.
The video appears to have been shot in one take and runs the gamut of every high school stereotype that you can imagine — cheerleaders, mascots, jocks, nerds, art, music, theatre, frisbee and a ton of confetti. The video has more than 300 thousand hits and counting, which is quite impressive considering that it’s only five days old. The video was directed and produced by Courtney Coddington and the editing and cinematography is from Gavin Rudy.
