Great job, Aaron.

Thanks, Chuck.

Thanks King!
Searching for an answer got me reading all about Grand Rapids. Seems like a nice place! I've always wanted to visit Michigan.
I've been in the Grand Rapids area quite a few times. It is nice. Holland is nice, too. The whole area gets lots of lake effect snow.

Congratulations, Aaron! Someday there will also be a Donald Trump Airport. It will probably be located in Moscow although there is a slight possibility it could be built in Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg or Saint Petersburg. еще раз поздравляю!

Mister semi, have you ever seen the famous "Grand Rapids Lip Dub"? Roger Ebert calls it "the greatest video ever made." It is truly amazing – and it was all filmed in a single take:

Bear in mind that I live in the GR area. The LipDub was a big deal when it was released in 2011. Rob Bliss was the Willy Wonka of GR with his stunts. He brought us everything from a monster inflatable slide downtown to a free EDM festival that featured the lady known as "SuperDre" (4:43 in the video). Then, he disappeared.

Bill Steffen :)22) is a local institution in this area. He's been a TV weatherman for 44 years.

It's a damn impressive video. I was trying to figure out how it was being filmed. Was it a guy on roller blades or was it a drone? I suspect the former since the camera looked to be taken up in helicopter at end (harder to do with a drone).

The cameraman was riding in a dune buggy that stayed in front of the "singers" until reaching the helicopter. Then he hopped off the dune buggy and got in the helicopter. This brief video – which unfortunately contains more still pictures than action footage – explains the process:
