Out of the Blue, University of Oxford’s all-male a cappella group have taken their internet fame to the next level, after releasing an amazingly hilarious cover. The group circulated a video featuring 15 students in identical suits and ties, spinning and twirling around, mimicking Shakira’s impressive dance moves in the historic grounds of the university.
The song includes choruses from Shakira’s most popular hits such as Whenever, Wherever, Hips Don’t Lie and Waka Waka. The talented college crooners have used their vocals in place of the song’s instruments. The proceeds from the track will go to charity.
The video has generated massive buzz as it has already been retweeted 1,200 times and made a favourite 1,800 times. On Facebook, it hit 87,928 likes and nearly 10,000 shares. Their biggest success was scored on YouTube, where they have reached 1,444,091 views! What the Oxford boys didn’t expect though, was Shakira to tweet their video to her 26.2 million followers on Twitter. The Colombian pop start wrote on Twitter: "Hey @ootboxford, we LOVE your a capella Shak medley!" . On Facebook she added: "The Oxford choir - Out Of The Blue is awesome! And the fact that they are doing this for charity makes it all the more special...soo well done!! Shak."
Apparently, being an Oxford student does not mean studying continuously or being a nerd. This group of students prove that they are well on their way to stardom and they make the most of their creative skills to gain exposure and appeal to as many people as possible.
