To understand this video, you need to know that Grand Rapids, Michigan was named by Newsweek as one of ten dying cities in America. Grand Rapids didn’t take kindly to that news and decided to make this video, which broke the world record for the longest continuous video shot, incorporating the number of people it did. Watch it to the end, it’s riveting. Some of the featured “singers” are local leaders and VIPS. Got this from Peter Kageyama who is the author of For the Love of Cities which you must read. Now.
