The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
Many of us have day-to-day gripes, but there’s just something special about putting them to song with a few dozen of your closest friends. The Philadelphia Complaint Choir made its iReport.com debut over the holidays with a surprisingly catchy tune about New Jersey drivers, being put on hold by customer service and other complaints. iReporter ceceliasmith shared this video and says that the idea, which actually started in Finland, has taken off worldwide. The NYU student is working on a documentary about the phenomenon and why it has been so well-received. The iReport.com community has had a lot to say about it. Ailina wrote: “I think this is a fantastic way to vent frustration (and create art at the same time)! It sure beats honking your horn, verbally assaulting a customer service rep, or burning up cell phone minutes complaining to a friend who doesn't want to be dumped on. If there were a complaint choir near me, I'd join in a heartbeat!” Studio1203 says: “Bad things happen in life, you deal with it and move on. No one wants to hear you complain. Interesting concept though!” Love it or hate it, this choir certainly elicits a strong reaction. Check it out here. And if you know of any other offbeat events or groups like this, tell us all about them here!
Great Story!!!! Maybe we all ought to give it a try...a lot less violent, and could possibly open doors of communication. Kuddos to the Philadelphia Complaint Choir!! Keep on singing :)
Can we please have this moment in history without the negative comments about how the shine will be gone in a few months. Newscasters, this is the moment! Stay in it!
