The Making of Christmas Shake 2012
Saturday November 24, 2012 we headed downtown Cincinnati to begin capturing our 2012 version or the Christmas Shake Song!
We first did the "Christmas Shake" back in 2009. It's the Holiday Season 2012, and we're back! This time we want to get the whole world Christmas Shaking.
"Christmas Shake" began as a 'silly song' and a simple quest back in December 2009. For the video, Forest Thomer and I came up with the idea of visiting downtown Cincinnati, Ohio and asking passersby to shake a gift wrapped box and help us spread some Christmas cheer and holiday joy!
It worked!! The response was great! A few families had fun Christmas Shakin'. We had fun capturing them on video, and out of that day of holiday fun, the Christmas Shake Dance was born! Of course most our shakers were already somewhat familiar with the "Christmas Shake" concept. Lots of people shake their holiday gifts before they open them.
