SAAB To Hold Student-Athlete Lip Sync Battle Benefiting THON

2015 and early 2016 saw the meteoric rise of a sudden cultural staple — not Saquon Barkley, but Lip Sync Battles. It all started when John Krasinski presented the idea as a fun game to play with Jimmy Fallon when he was still hosting “Late Night,” then that evolved into the Spike show “Lip Sync Battle,” where Krasinski is an executive producer, and the idea’s latest iteration is coming to the HUB’s Alumni Hall on Wednesday, Jan. 20.

Penn State student-athletes will get together to compete in a friendly Lip Sync Battle to benefit THON in a fundraiser organized by the Student-Athlete Advisory Board. Tickets are $4.99 at the door and $3 at a pre-sale.

Student-athletes and coaches from every sport were invited to compete, a word defined here as “lip sync and dance around to 1-2 minute snippets of popular songs FTK.”

“We are so excited to have the opportunity to not only raise money for THON, but to also interact as student-athletes with the rest of our Penn State family,” said Sarah Piazza, lacrosse midfielder and SAAB Vice President.

Almost every varsity team will be represented, so if you’re like me and didn’t get enough of the women’s volleyball team lip syncing “Blank Space” or loved men’s hockey destroying the competition in last THON’s dance-off, come out to the HUB Wednesday night and see what the Nittany Lions can do.
