So you already know that I participated in a Dove music video for Nourishing Oil Care. The commercial is actually 90% real dancers and 10% social media bloggers which is a good thing because – judging from my role in the video – social media bloggers do not professional dancers make.
But I digress.
The experience was phenomenal: Mark Townsend consulting on my hair, A.J. Akomon showing me some dance steps (even if my non-smiling, soldier-esque interpretation in the video makes me cringe) and an introduction to a daily conditioner that I now use daily. (It’s thick and rich and works well on my kinky curly hair – which has me already contemplating how I can fit bottles of the stuff in my bag when we head around the world this summer.)
Now it’s your turn.
The bloggers involved are intent on making sure that lots of people see this video because if it gets 1 million hits Dove Canada will donate $100,000 to the Dove Self Esteem Fund whose mandate is to “inspire and educate girls and young women about a wider definition of beauty.” And who doesn’t want that?
So, I’m asking you to watch it. Then watch it again.
And after you have watched it so often you find yourself humming the tune even when the computer is off (we need the clicks!), leave me a comment below describing your most embarrassing dance move and I’ll put your name in a draw to win a year’s supply of Dove hair products. Yup. That easy.
Contest ends May 1, 2011. Name will be chosen at random.
We’ve got a winner: Congratulations to Colleen from Vancouver. Happy hair styling. :)
Heather, you look gorgeous in blue :)
You want to know my most embarrassing dance moves? How about not dancing? Does that count?
I grew up as a good little Mennonite girl (well, not always that good) and in grade eight when my parents found out that there would be square dancing in P.E., I, along with the only other Mennonite in my class, were forbidden to partake in that verboten and sinful activity. I had to sit on the bleachers while our schoolmates dosey-doed.
Can I begin to describe the cringe factor? I’m still traumatized by square dancing.
LOL. Be grateful Colleen, I bet those kids looked ridiculous. And now? C’mon I bet you can cut a rug like the best of them…
I don’t even know what you’re talking about – all my dance moves are stellar. I can Hammer dance, electric slide and now, yes I can even dougie:) OK – maybe all of the above would qualify:)
Love the video – would have loved to have seen more of you real women!
Kelli, you are my dancing hero. You’ve definitely got the moves and you’re my go to girl for learning the newest ones. Maybe, I’ll change the requirement to “moves your kids would find embarassing” which will probably include everything I do.
