Dubsmashing- A new perfect hobby.


What is Dubsmash?

Well, its a mobile application wherein users can lipsynch thru different audio files, whether its a clip from a famous movie line or your favorite song. Its actually easy to use and one can navigate through it without any further assistance. But, you must ensure that you are connected to the internet before you can use it.

So, why Dubsmash. Well first and foremost, I love to lipsynch to some of my favorite songs and recording a video from it. I remember I did some of the “Call Me Maybe” and “Hot and Cold” way back 2011. I just don’t have enough guts to post them online,  let’s just say I wanna view it as a form of self-entertainment. So to answer the question why, I have list down some of my reasons, I don’t know if it would apply to you too.

  1. Its a great stress reliever
  2. You get to enhance your creativity
  3. It will overcome your shyness
  4. And,  you can get famous Online.


For the past month, I have already posted several of them via Instagram and Facebook. My most favorite was when I did a compilation of  Lola Nidora’s famous lines from the hit “Kalyeserye”.  I found it very fun to act out the emotions from those certain lines as well as think how you will be able to pull through a witty re-enactment. Its like going through an acting workshop but with no expense. No Coaches to pay, No Distractions from peers and you get to choose your own scenario.

Dubsmashing is not that hard, all you need to do is select a clip, listen to it, and just mouth the words. Yes, it maybe frustrating at first, but with lots of practice you can nail it perfectly. It might take at least 30 minutes to an hour to perfect a 10-second clip, but mind you, once you see the outcome, you will be overwhelmed from what you have created.

As of the moment, I am foraying my craziness  to enact some clips from famous TVC’s, my recent post was all about a laundry detergent. I have also tried to do some of the famous ads from a fast food chain.

There’s no limitation as to what you can do. You can choose whether to be creative or not. You can choose to just enjoy watching it on your own or share it for the world to see. As what a TV ad tagline says, “Imagination mo lang ang limit!“.


So what are you waiting for? Go and create some, and always remember to have some FUN!
