The only way Wausau West students want to live is like a warrior. After watching a lip dub video from another school, the school wanted to wave its flag too.
"Our original goal in the video was to promote community spirit and to celebrate the things we have at West," said student Christine Schlais.
Ten students planned this performance for months. About 300 students met Sunday to film.
"I remember walking down this hallway here and just feeling this enormous boom of yells and screams," said student Matthew Sweeney, who helped create the video.
Students who worked on the project say they're happy with how it turned out.
"I'm hoping to post it to Facebook talk about how proud I am to be a warrior how amazing of an experience this was and hope to do something similar to it again," said Sweeney.
"We started with nothing and ended with what i think is a pretty amazing end product," said Maureen Wagers, a teacher at the school. She also supervised the video.
"It kind of gives you the tingles actually when you think about just how enthusiastic and how much spirit the kids that day had," said Wagers.
The students hope the video will make an impact on the community, with a clear message about Wausau West.
"The true school spirit and the true pride the warriors have for their school," said Sweeney.
