Everyone is coming up with fun ways to spend their time during the COVID-19 quarantine, but #LockdownLipsync is by far one of our favorites.
Meet Rachel Parris and Marcus Brigstocke, two comedians from London, England, who love spreading smiles almost as much as they love each other. Like millions around the world, they’ve been getting stir-crazy at home, so they got creative to keep themselves (and us) entertained.
It all started when Rachel found herself lip-syncing to Iggy Azalea’s “Trouble” one day. She recorded herself hamming it up for the camera before sharing the video on Twitter.

The next day, Marcus uploaded a “response” to Rachel and sparked an epic duel between them.

It wouldn’t be much of a battle if they didn’t up the stakes! In the following days, they shared performance after performance to classic hits while reassuring viewers, “We’re fine.”

Both got more dramatic each round, donning costumes…

…and incorporating props — all of which they already had at home!

Now thousands are waiting patiently for each new video. It isn’t clear how long Rachel and Marcus plan to keep this up, but we can only hope their battle will continue as long as we’re in quarantine. After all, they’re having a blast!
