DETROIT (AP) – A video featuring students using American Sign Language to communicate the lyrics to a White Stripes song features several Michigan students.

The Flint Journal reports the video from the Deaf Professional Artists Network began getting more attention online after the White Stripes’ website promoted it earlier this month.

The video is to the song “Were Going To Be Friends.” Shot in June in the Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Hills, the video features students including some from the Michigan School for the Deaf in Flint.

The artists’ network also known as D-PAN has made a number of other videos. The White Stripes started off in Detroit in 1997. The groundbreaking rock duo of Jack and Meg White announced earlier this year they were splitting up.
