Hello guys,

Haven’t been active on this site lately, and I’m not totally sure if this is going to work, but I will give it a try! This is the idea. A good friend of mine, Demi, is birthday soon and I’d like to give her a video surprise. The idea is that people from all over the world take part in the vid. Now, it would be awesome if you want to help. The only thing you have to do is make a video of yourself saying:

“Hey Demi, happy birthday from … (your country)”

You can upload it to YouTube and paste the URL here. If you want to keep it private (I won’t use it for other purposes, she’ll be the only one who sees the video) send the video to viraleservice [at] gmail.com.

I’m curious if this is going to work. Thanks in advance everyone!!! You would help me a lot!

Ps. my apologies for my English ;)

I went ahead and moved your thread to All Marketplaces as you might have better luck here rather than in Off Topic.

On a more official note, it’s a cool idea and I think you might be able to find some people who’d happily help out :)

Good luck and feel free to share the video once it’s complete!

EDIT : I also edited the email to help you prevent some spam.

Should I put VideoHive watermark over it? :) Just kidding. I think it’s a cool idea. I’ll send you video in a few hours.

Its a nice idea and all, but Im not really sure if it would mean that much to show a video of random people from random places (people she doesnt know and has never seen before) congratulate her. Would be great if it were family or celebrities though

Maybe it would be more authentic if everybody recorded themselves saying the wishes in their own language? :)

Guys,

My apologies for the late response!! It is meant to make her happy, some good friends of her will be adding videos so it will be one large video of all kinds of people – thats the idea :)

urbazon – great idea, however i am not sure if she will understand all languages :-)

So, Constantis, how many videos have you received up until now? I really hope that this idea of yours works out as planned.
