Holidays aren’t the same without a Walk Off The Earth video, so here we go!
If you're new to this site, Walk Off The Earth is a Toronto band that achieved YouTube glory in the winter of 2012 with a live video of all five members playing one guitar. (See here). A national TV appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and a Sony recording contract quickly followed. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of videos, albums, and multiple tours of North America and Europe.
Here they are doing a holiday spoof of their original video. (I’ve seen them up close on many occasions perform a medley of songs on one guitar, so I'm here to tell you this ain't smoke and mirrors.)
I’ve posted on these guys at least 15 times (including here and here) because this band makes some of the most creative videos you'll ever see, seemingly without effort, many of them on low dough. What could be a better model for business teams of all stripes? Innovation on a tight budget.
You can watch their 44-minute Christmas video here, with a cameo by the one and only Jose Feliciano.
I feel compelled to issue my usual warning: watching WOTE videos can become seriously habit-forming.
Wishing you a peaceful holiday. And if peace is unattainable let me suggest—in the spirit of the times—total victory!
