Birthdays: Video Fixed

Alright, listen.  Well, first of all, let's do this right.  Happy Birthday Michelle!  I hope it was a magical day full of cake and laughs.

Ok, now back to me.  As some of you know, it is my birthday in a few weeks.  I've been thinking a lot about this whole thirty thing.

Also, I've been listening to Taylor Swift, in particular her song, "22".  AND for some reason, Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" has been in that rotation, as well.  All this leads me to asking for a favor from you.

Yes, from you.  If you're sitting there right now, looking over your shoulder, and thinking that surely I mean someone else, you're wrong. I mean you.

And it isn't much, what I'm asking. Not really.  Just put on T-Swift, "22", or really any other song that makes you feel like dancing, and dance.  And record it on video.  And email it to me.  Or, upload it to google drive and share it.  Or, put it on a disc and mail it.

I don't care how you do it, just do it!  Come on! Let's dance!  I'll do one too, I promise.

To start us off, please enjoy this little thing I pulled together tonight.

Come on, for my birthday?  Please?  I'll do the same thing for you, on your birthday, if you'd like me to.

A few things to note:
Your video clip does not have to be for the full duration of the song. I'm just crazy about dancing, is all.  Send me what you can!
You do not have to dress up like a wild person with red lipstick. If you want to, go for it. Otherwise, just shake your stuff however you are dressed.
It's for my birthday!!


  1. Ever watch the show 'So You Think You Can Dance?' It's my favorite. A few years ago, they started celebrating National Dance Day. They post videos of a couple different routines before the big day (one for beginners, one for the not-so-beginners), and people learn them so that they can record themselves and send in their videos of them dancing. Or they do flash mobs that day. But it's kinda of cool to see people from all over the world dancing the exact same dance on the exact same day. Sounds like your kind of party, huh? :)

  2. Pure greatness!! I think the hair whip is my fav! I'm so stoked for this. Just you wait! :))

  3. I LOVE this!! Loving the side pony with the scrunchi!
    Devin is one lucky man!! I'm still laughing... This was great!! I miss you so much! So I'm thinking you should definitely become a Zumba instructor or something! Cuz girl -- you got moves!! On a side note I was just wondering did devin take the girls somewhere or were they all napping when you decided to Rock out?!!!
