There’s just too much bad in the world at the moment for me to feel up to writing another serious blog post today. Lucky for me, my family and I just finished my mom’s birthday video this year.
If you didn’t know, we’ve turned this into a yearly tradition. She’s not the easiest person to buy gifts for, so I’ve gone the homemade route, making videos for her that fit some sort of theme. Our first one was Barry Manilow’s Copacabana, since she’s a big Manilow fan.
We took a year off. (I can’t remember why.) But we came back with a vengeance, producing a video for The Lion Sleeps Tonight, starring MC as the Lion:
This was followed the next year by another of Mom’s favorite groups: the Carpenters, with a video of Close to You.
And last year, we spoofed the opening credits of one of her favorite shows, The Waltons:
This year, we returned to the Manilow well, doing a video for his hit song, It’s a Miracle. And so without further ado, I present you this year’s video. It takes a surprising turn, and we had a lot of fun with it. Happy birthday, Mom!
