Reese Witherspoon Dubsmashes "Bananaphone" & It's The Latest In A Long List Of Hilarious Celebrity Lip Syncs — VIDEO
It's no secret that actress Reese Witherspoon isn't shy when it comes to social media, and her most recent appearance in the land of filtered photos took a turn for the adorable. On Sunday, September 6, Witherspoon uploaded a video to her Instagram account using the video messaging application Dubsmash. The video featured Witherspoon and her son lip syncing to Raffi's "Bananaphone" — with the help of real bananas. Witherspoon and little Tennessee fully committed to the lip sync, beaming into the camera as she made a faux phone call from her piece of fruit. For his part, Tennessee — who will turn 3 on September 27 — showcased some skills worthy of a lip-syncing wunderkind. The actress captioned the photo: "Good morning! Pick up the banana phone! #toddlertime #funwithfruit." So cute!
Witherspoon is far from the first celebrity to up their social media game with the help of the lip-syncing app. Just as A-listers took to the trend of crashing weddings (this is otherwise known as the best wedding gift imaginable), stars far and wide have become just as enamored with Dubsmash as us regular folk. The app's soaring popularity has caused an ever-growing appearance of celebrity lip syncs on our respective social media feeds, assuredly distracting many from work in the best way possible.
For the sake of happy distractions, let's take a look at 13 of the best celebrity Dubsmash videos to date.
1. Jennifer Lopez
New life goal: Become Jennifer Lopez's best friend.
2. Josh Groban
This may go down as the most hilarious "interruption" of all time.
3. Kate Upton & Justin Verlander
To be fair, "Pam" and "pan" are only off by one letter.
4. Lena Dunham & Jack Antonoff
While I am impressed by Dunham's lip-syncing skills, my eyes can't veer from Antonoff's coquettish/creepy stare.
5. Karlie Kloss, Eva Longoria, & Friends
Team effort! If these are the shenanigans that usually go on behind the scenes at a commercial shoot, I officially have a L'Oréal audition to get to ASAP.
6. Olivia Munn & Aaron Rodgers
"Pure emoting" is right! Rodgers' dramatic shedding of a blanket and interpretive signing makes my heart sing. #RelationshipGoals, anyone?
7. Anna Kendrick
Who ever knew Beyoncé's "Run the World (Girls)" could be so serene?
8. Khloe Kardashian & Kylie Jenner
Sisterly love FTW — amiright?
9. Ashley Benson & Shay Mitchell
This may be the perfect way to carry Pretty Little Liars fans over while waiting for new episodes.
10. Dane Cook
This will haunt all my re-watchings of Mean Girls from this day forward.
11. Allison Williams
Lip sync or not, this is just plain impressive.
12. Sarah Hyland & This Guy
Hyland nailed the Tyra Banks impression — from one of the most memorable episodes of America's Next Top Model, no less! Her friend also committed to his role in the post, making me hope I can see this unknown prodigy in an episode of Modern Family one day.
13. Reese Witherspoon & Sofia Vergara
The Hot Pursuit costars proved they're just as hilarious off-screen as they are on with this epic rendition of "I Knew You Were Trouble" by Taylor Swift.
I personally think each and every person featured on this deserves a Lip Sync Battle nomination. And, yes, that includes the unknown who was featured in Benson's ANTM lip sync.
