Lately, cups have been making their way into modern music than ever before.
They’re in movies, popular Youtube and Facebook videos, and Tv shows.
In this video, Anna Kendrick, star of the movie “Pitch Perfect” shares with David Letterman where she learned her cup trick which has become one of the most popular scenes of the movie.
Anna Kendrick isn’t the only one spending her afternoons practicing with cups. This viral Youtube video of two young girls performing an a cappella version of “Call Your Girlfriend” with cups is even more popular than the original song by artist Robyn.
Just type in “Cups A Capella” into the Youtube search bar and you’ll find thousands and thousands of videos of people tapping and singing into their webcams.
What it is about tapping cups and singing along may not be clear to everyone, but one thing is for sure and that’s that everyone is eating it up.
