The Most Amazing Video I’ve Ever Seen #FirstWorldProblems

“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” – Muhammad Ali… Most of you have probably noticed that giving back is a pretty important thing to me. Even though I don’t make a ton of money, and we live on a super tight budget, but I always find a way to give back, especially at the holidays. I buy gifts to donate to the local YWCA shelter for women who are trying to get out of a domestic violence type situation. I use my holiday shopping dollars to buy charity gifts to places like Heifer International. And, I’m definitely going to be supporting this new organization that I found today – Water is Life. Seriously – I think that this is one of the best marketing videos that I’ve seen in forever. It’s funny, in a weird way. It’s moving. It makes you think. It does an amazing job of making you realize WHY people around the world need our help. It gets the message across perfectly, in a video that makes people want to share it…

I encourage you to make a donation – even of just one dollar – to the Water is Life foundation. Want to learn a little more about them first? Read a story of the founder of the charity on the TPRF blog, which features real stories of the people behind great groups like this…

 As a Fulbright Scholar, Ariane lived with families in the Azawak region and discovered the human face of climate change: people literally dying of thirst because of their inability to adapt to a rapidly changing climate.  Ariane found these people to be the most generous and dignified as well as the most vulnerable of the populations she encountered in her travels throughout West Africa. She had never before witnessed an area with so few resources and infrastructure, where individuals live on the brink of disaster on a daily basis due to circumstances beyond their control. Most importantly, she had never seen half a million people in such distress receiving so little assistance from the rest of the world.

Or buy the CD Aman Iman: Water is Life – to show your support.

“Share it Maybe” Sesame Street Parody Video #Humor

“I just met you, and this is crazy – But here’s my number. So call me, maybe?”… I’m guessing that you all know this song, right? I mean, how can you escape it? It seems to be on the radio every 1- to 15 minutes, it’s on every commercial, it’s referenced non-stop around the web… And like it or not, it’s so catchy that you’ll catch yourself singing along with it every time. {I even saw a blogger who made uh-may-zingly funny business cards that read – I just met you, and this is crazy – But here’s my handle. So tweet me, maybe?” And now this tune has spread all the way to Sesame Street! Check out Cookie Monster’s version of Call Me Maybe, by Carly Rae Jepsen….

But you’ve got cookies, so share them maybe?

Can’t see this “Share it Maybe” Sesame Street Parody of “Call Me Maybe?” video? Watch it on YouTube here. I found this today in my email – I’m a subscriber to the Muppet Central forums, and get fun little updates like this once a week or so. Love it – and to be honest – I totally prefer Cookie Monster’s parody version of the song to the original. I’m a big Cookie Monster fan… :)

5 Singing Kids on YouTube that You Don’t Want to Miss!

Earlier today I was browsing YouTube, looking for some new social media, blogging, or marketing videos with cool tips that I could maybe share with you guys. But of course, what I actually ended up watching was funny cat clips and adorable kids doing cute things. This is partly because I had Abby on my lap, and she wanted cats. But it’s also partly because I’m easily distracted, lol. But – while I didn’t end up watching what I had intended to, I did find some pretty amazing stuff…. So, I figured I’d share. Because I like you guys :) Here is a round-up of the the funniest, cutest, and super crazy-talented little singers I’ve ever seen. Love it.

Oh.My.Heck. Is this kid totally amazing, or what? I love how the guy running the store has to stop him at first, to get his own video of his singing. This little guy is just unbelievable!

This absolutely cracks me up! I saw this for the first time about a year ago, and I laughed just as hard when I came across it again today. He is so into it, and his facial expressions are just awesome. The way he plays his toy guitar is also super impressive – he has the moves right, and must have watched a lot of real players. He is just the cutest little thing.

This cutie pie is only 4 years old… How amazing is that? Heck, just learning the words to that song is an accomplishment – but this little mister plays the music too! He is super amazing… And you can hear the crowd just go wild over his performance. So fun.

Yes!!!! Love this!! He is rockin’ it… Love the moves he get in there, lol. He is so serious, and totally into the song… I can see him on American Idol in a few years. Awesome.

Ok – so this one was too funny. I just had to share it… I mean, he didn’t quite nail the lyrics, lol. But he’s great on his little guitar, and has so much enthusiasm. So adorable, and just cracked me up.

Do you have a favorite YouTube video? Share it in the comments… I don’t feel like getting any work done today….


Worse than the Flu – the “Bieber Fever” is Spreading to Weddings…

The Bieber Fever is Spreading…

You’ve heard of the Bieber Fever, right? You know, Justin Bieber, that little mop-headed doll with the catchy songs on the radio? If you’ve got a teen girl in your house, then you know what I’m talking about. And if you don’t have a teen girl in your house… Well, you still probably know what I’m talking about. This kid’s everywhere these days.

Surprise Wedding Dance

This video is the greatest thing I’ve seen all week. Even better than the Swagger Wagon. Here’s why –

  • This kid has got moves! Holy heck – did you see him jump over the groomsman’s head during the Ludacris part? Impressive.
  • The put in some hours of practice! I didn’t see any real mess-up’s. Do you think these dudes choreographed it themselves, or had some help? Either way, rocked it.
  • LOVE the wigs on the groomsmen. And I love watching these dudes with big beards dancing to Bieber. So great.
  • Dancing a fool at a party? Funny stuff. Dancing a fool on the biggest day of your life, in front of every single person you care about, while being video taped and shared on the ‘net? Priceless.

Have a favorite funny video?

Share the link in the comments, or post it on my Facebook page! {Family-friendly on Facebook please, no wild surprises, lol}I have piles upon piles of work to do, and I don’t wanna. If you post your links, then I’ll get to watch them and call it work….. Have a great weekend everyone!
