Yesterday evening, on the way home over London Bridge in rush hour, listening to my iPod, I was overwhelmed by the urge to flip open my phone and record this for the VlogDeathmath.com Drunk Underwear Karaoke Challenge.
It’s not for the win, just something silly I did in one shot last night to get the ball rolling, because nobody else had posted on yet. And to show people that they don’t need to get too freaked out by any issues of quality, production values, nakedness or anything else. You just need to cut loose.
So it’s not on the scale of Anarchy in the UK, but it was fun to do anyway.
The rules of the latest Deathmatch are to use any or all of the words Drunk Underwear Karaoke as a basis for your video.
I wasn’t drunk, or in my underwear (i was tempted) but yesterday was my last day of work before a month-long holiday in Canada, so I *was* totally lightheaded with joy. Or maybe it was that I’d lost my wallet and hadn’t eaten anything all day.
Turns out that the challenge was designed to attract non-videobloggers to the Pioneer Two Boots movie theater in New York where these entries will be screened on 11 August. If I’d known it was going to be shown to an audience on a big screen when I recorded it, I would have done it at twice the resolution. And I would have done it in my underwear. And I definitely would have done it drunk.
So – videobloggers – come and join the party. You’ll get your videos shown on a big screen in New York. What are you waiting for? Get drunk, get naked, get down…
