I know. I know. I usually post my Back in My Day blog on Fridays but given that tomorrow is Christmas Eve, I wanted to share this with you today because it’s so appropriate for the holidays.
I ran across one of the cutest and one of the most original videos on You Tube. It’s called the “Digital Story of Nativity or Christmas 2.0“. First, you have to love the title. Then you have to love the premise. The video goes back in time (thus the reason it is in my BIMD series) and recreates the birth of Christ as if all the social media tools were available at the time. So you see the Archangel Gabriel send a text to Mary telling her she will be having a baby. You see Mary sending Joseph an email to let him know the news and that they need to talk. And it goes on from there. They use Google Maps, the IPhone, Facebook, Ebay, and you name it to tell the story. Very funny
To me, this is a great example of using creativity, technology & humor to capture the interest of viewers. They took a familiar story & gave it a 21st Century spin by applying technology to make it entertaining. It keeps you engaged and curious to see how else they will surprise you with. You are not disappointed. It leaves you with a smile.
So as we get ready to celebrate Christmas with our families tomorrow & Saturday, I hope this video puts a smile on your face and makes you chuckle. As the video says “times change, feelings remain the same”.
Happy Digital Christmas everybody!
