Def Leppard and YouTube announce lip-synching contest

Posted on

YouTube and Def Leppard.com are offering a chance to see the Pyromania-cal ’80s rockers on tour this summer with Poison and Cheap Trick — and all you have to do is videotape what you do every day anyway (i.e., shut office door, crank up “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” sing along like off-key banshee while pouring pilfered packets of Splenda from work coffee station down writhing body).
