LAFAYETTE, Ind. (October 1, 2015) – On Friday, September 25, nearly every student representing every club and organization in the school gathered in the hallways and the gym. The goal: a school-wide lip dub video.

Close to two-thousand students worked together to show allegiance to their school as the danced and lip-synced to the Flo Rida song, “I Don’t Like It, I Love It.”

The video was planned, staged and filmed by Jefferson High School alum Jack Klink. The song was played on the high school’s FM radio station so it could be heard on radios placed throughout the school while the video was recorded.

The video features teacher Chuck Herber, celebrating his fiftieth year of teaching English. Thirty of those years have been at Jefferson High.

The video begins with a student asking Herber, “You’ve taught for fifty years? Do you like it?” Herber replies, “I don’t like it, I LOVE it!”

Less than one day after the video was posted online, it received more than 22,000 views!
