More Ugly Sweaters



UPDATE: Upper management was intimidated by the ultra-cool atmosphere of this video. They have requested that we make the video private, even though they weren't fortunate enough to have the company logo displayed anywhere within. Ah well. Those of you who had a chance to see it before this happened-- count yourselves lucky. :) {want to be lucky? Send me an email and I may give you the password.}

When you sat down in front of your computer just now, I'm sure you were searching for something. Something you couldn't quite put a name to. Something funny. Entertaining. Distracting. Without knowing it, you were searching for this: ugly sweaters! :)

At my husband's recent company Christmas party, he and a few of his awesome videographer colleagues pulled out their cameras and talked everyone into doing an impromptu lip-dub to Weezer's 'Undone'. Appropriate, considering the required attire. It was so much more fun than sitting around the cocktail weenies and chatting. 

The winner of the ugly sweater contest was the guy pictured above. I think his hat put him over the top. I came in second wearing a sweater I borrowed from my mother-in-law's closet {and my new skinny jeans!}. When I told her the news, she replied, "Oh.... good?" {We all thought Jared was robbed. His sweater was hideous-- he dug it out of the $1 bin in the ladies section of Goodwill.} 

And a final note: the latter part of the video {where it gets fast, blurry and strobe-like} is actually done with tons of still shots taken with an SLR and strung together. I thought that was kinda neat.

Wow! What a good tribute to one of the greatest Weezer songs.

And I just watched your Christmas card--your family is so fun and creative. Makes me feel boring. But seriously, fun video.

Merry Christmas!

Loving all your videos! They are so clear with amazing quality. And very clever! If you don't mind me asking, what equipment do you use?

So, does this mean we cannot watch the video? I am dying to see it.

Sorry, I don't want to get my husband fired. :( I'll make it up to you with another video soon, promise.
