The first lipdub video with 300 Cambodian kids and the story of how I met Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

By Jean-Luc Nguyen- The videos were originally posted here:

I have been keeping this video secret for almost 8 months, but I think it’s time to release it now. I’m going to share with you the most important video I made so far while traveling, the one I have worked the most for, and also the most meaningful to me.

It is a lipdub (a video where numerous people are lip-syncing on a song) that I made in an Angkorean Temple with 300 Cambodian Kids from the local primary school of Krasang Roleung near Siem Reap, Cambodia.

I believe it’s the first lipdub made with 300 kids as well as one of the first made in South East Asia in general.

I want to tell you why this video is so special to me. It’s a VERY long story. You’ll learn all the difficulties we went through to make the lipdub, how the kids reacted when they saw it, why and how I chased Angelina Jolie but eventually talked to Brad Pitt. And most importantly, what important lesson in life I learnt from that experience. So get some popcorn and enjoy the ride.

Why this lipdub? What happened after the shooting? How did the kids react when they saw it?

More behind the scenes

These kids are students from the Learning Foundation. What is the Learning Foundation?

Very excited. I'm happy that the kids are happy and learning English too. Great works, Jean-Luc.

This is the best situation that has been shown in a long while. This is what our young generation needs as opposed to the terrorism being committed to the factory workers who are trying to be treated and compensated properly and fairly.

Great job for all your contributions and humanitarian works fellows.
