One couple turned the monotony of social distancing and lockdown orders into an elaborate lip-syncing game.

Comedians Rachel Parris and Marcus Brigstocke started posting videos of themselves lip-synching to famous songs in early April. Eventually, the videos went viral, and now the couple is trying to out-do one another with even more elaborate lip-sync videos.

It all started with Parris' video where she sang along with Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson in their song "Trouble."

When that video took off, Brigstocke decided to one-up his wife by lip-syncing DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince's "Boom! Shake The Room."

From there, the couple has been creating more lip-sync videos, challenging each other to get even more creative.

The videos sparked the #LockdownLipsync hashtag, inspiring others to join in on the fun and create their own lip-sync videos.
