The lip synch video that Gavin and his peers at Lakewood High put together quickly went viral and immediately caught Katy Perry's attention. The video has been referred to now as an "internet sensation" receiving over 593,000 views so far! Gavin and all 2000 students and faculty in the video nailed it in one take with so much spirit and not to mention perfect timing! See for yourself! Here's Lakewood High's winning Lip-Dub Roar video filmed and edited by Gavin Rudy:
