this really impacted me today.
My hometown.. getting shit done. I’m proud.
OHHH my gosh… A whole city responds to an article stating that it was one of the highest “America’s Dying Cities”
Lip Dub of the Day: Newsweek published an article a while back which stated that Grand Rapids, Michigan, is high up on the list of America’s “Dying Cities.”
So Grand Rapids responded by getting 5,000 residents together to perform an elaborate lip dub of Don McLean’s “American Pie.” Obviously.
Newsweek subsequently offered Grand Rapids a contrite rejoinder, saying the article was picked up as part of a content sharing deal with mainstreet.com and was not penned by Newsweek. “it uses a methodology that our current editorial team doesn’t endorse and wouldn’t have employed,” Newsweek goes on to say. “It certainly doesn’t reflect our view of Grand Rapids.”
Oh, get a room.
