Yesterday we gave you the MamaPop Sparklecorn 2010 teaser trailer.
This morning? You get the whole shebang.
And what a shebang it is. Boy howdy.
When MamaPop’s resident photographer, Ryan Marshall of Pacing The Panic Room, previewed the completed video below for me last night, I’m not ashamed to say I quite literally cried the first time I watched it. Since then, I’ve probably watched it two dozen times (OCD much?), and I’ve been thinking quite a bit about why it brought me to tears. My conclusions?
1. To my mind, this video perfectly captures the fruition of an honest-to-god labor of love that both Amy and I worked hard for months to bring to life, and that gives me unadulterated warm fuzzies;
2. It shows a bunch of women together, uninhibited and joyful, dancing their asses off and letting loose completely — and when do you see that, really? (not often enough, as far as I’m concerned);
3. You, the party people who were in the hizzouse, are freaking rock stars, SERIOUSLY. I want to take you all home and cuddle with you and make you all be my BFFs (hair-braiding and pillowfights at my house tonight, y’all!).
But enough of my mush — I could go on for days like this, and I’ll spare you that particular horror. Instead, go ahead and crank up the volume on your computer, and hit PLAY below to see what I’m gushing about (note: the track on this video contains some NSFW language, so if you have headphones, use em’).
Major props again to the amazing ladies at BlogHer, without whom none of this would’ve been possible, for real.
