The Bingham High School yearbook club wasn't content with just a book or slide show. They corralled almost the entire school into a music video.

About 2,200 students and faculty line the halls of the South Jordan school and lip dub to "This is Bingham (I Love It)," a cover of Icona Pop's "I Love It," as the camera tracks by them in a single shot from start to finish. Thanks to a chopper from Utah Helicopter, the video even takes to the air for the finale.

"Typically at the end of the year we do a slide show which is kind of what everyone does ... and somebody had the idea of a lip dub," said Jake Berube, a senior and the yearbook club's technical editor.

It took several hundred of hours of work and coordination with the school's clubs, athletic teams and students to pull it off. In the end, "it was kind of surprising how awesome everyone was," Berube said.
