The students at Akron Archbishop Hoban High School have recently gained notoriety, as a school-approved lip dub video has gone viral on the Internet.

Since being posted on YouTube on March 28, the student-made video has been viewed more than 49,600 times.   

The well-orchestrated, unedited, nine-minute lip sync video shows extensive cooperation and teamwork between the school's student body and faculty.

"Every extracurricular activity and group had a chance to demonstrate the type of school Hoban is." athletic director Michael Del Medico said.

The man behind the camera, Mario Micale, (Twitter handle: @itsameMario3595) and his friends Jimmy Martter (Twitter handle: @JimmyMartter) and Joe Clark (Twitter handle: @jclark_12) arranged for the video to be filmed after school.

It took one month of planning, two walkthroughs and one recorded take to create the coordinated music video. It was shot and posted the same day. 

The video features every floor of the school - from the basement to the roof - and it goes from one side of the building to the other.

An equally amazing feat, the school was cleaned in preparation for the next school day before the students left.
