This is an open call to anybody who thinks this would be fun, because, well, life is supposed to be fun!
Two Christmases ago, we made an awesome blogger lip sync (it was around the time of "Call Me Maybe," which is how we got the idea) and it was a hit. Someone recommended TLC's No Scrubs (I think it may have been Tamara?) for our next blogger lip sync video, and sure enough, it was similarly stellar.
We've talked about doing a third one, but no song has every felt worthy enough...until T.Swift's "Shake It Off" was released. It's catchy, fun, and you can't not dance when you hear it. So, we're doing another blogger lip sync, this time to Shake It Off.
Want to join? Here's what I need from you:
1. Record yourself lip syncing/dancing/being silly to her song. You can find the lyrics here, or you can just say the last word in each line five times, but you have to have fun. (If you record with you cell phone, make sure to have it in landscape!)
2. HAVE FUN while doing it. Use your best friend, fiance, new baby, or puppy. Grab props, make faces, shake your booty. It doesn't matter, just enjoy it!
3. Save it and Dropbox it (it's free) or .zip file it my way via email (sarah laurie lake at gmail, no spaces).
[Optional 4th step: If you have a part of your video you particularly dislike but like the rest, let me know and I'll make sure to not include that part. Similarly, if you have a part that you love, let me know so I can be sure to add it.]
And that's it! The only caveat? You have to send it to me by Sunday, August 31st by noon Central time.
