Headline News

Last night we were able to enjoy a couple of videos our nephew made while we were visiting Zack's parents. We had a great time and thought that we should put Zachary's and Mikey's book reports on YouTube for all to enjoy. They are pretty fun to watch - enjoy!

Thats so creative!! Mud on the face, flying snow, & Michaels reaction to the lady cooking was hilarious.

In Zachary's video we wanted to make it sound like Michael's musket accidentally went off while he was messing around with it (right when he was staring down the barrel), but we were also concerned that people might think we "killed him off" in the video, so we had him return with a cheesy "DO I?" comment later in the commercial, with stuff all over his face. We didn't have any decent charcoal to use, so we just smeared Hershey's chocolate all over his face. However, the viewer is left to make their own assumptions after hearing the two "accidental" gunshots at the end, after Zachary announced the product recall.

It was definitely fun (for them and for us) making both videos... the boys like having opportunities to be a little goofy. Mikey's teacher liked his video (on the book "George Washington's Socks") so much that she asked for a copy of his video to keep, so she can use it as an example to her future classes of the kind of video that's expected with the "Video Book Report" project.

I also like Mikey's usage of "finger quotation marks"... it cracked me up.

Good job everyone! These are sooooooooooooo great. I can't even believe the personality on those boys. Well, yes I can. I've met their parents.

I don't know what was funnier. The videos or the fact that the musket shot scared the CRAP out of me while sitting with the headphones on in my family room. I had the volume turned up very loud due to 3 teenage boys playing X box in the same room.
I seriously jumped about 3 inches off my chair.

Should have read the comments first...

Michael BEING the cooking lady was what cracked me up the most!! And Zack's "night vision accessory kit"!!!! I though you'd killed off michael too!

Those videos are so stinking funny! What clever and cute children! I loved the musket ad & Zackey's presentation of the material & Mikey's multiple personalities. So so creative and fun. Great job!

Everything was awesome, but here were my faves: the night accessory kit, the musket shots (totally surprised me too!), and the "powder" all over Mikey's face. In Michael's I loved him being Michaelina, and the best was the weather report where he's getting hit with all the snow at the end. I was dying. These are amazing! Great job everyone!
