I decided it's been a long time since I used my video editing skills I paid to learn, so I want to make a music video for the Official Anthem of Cafemom. Below is a rough draft of the lyrics. I'm open to suggestions for changes. It will be to the tune of LMFAO's "Sexy and I know it". (The song is NOT about any one person nor does it include anything about any specific Cafemoms, so unless you ask to change a part of the lyrics to "fit" you, this is purely for entertainment).



YOU CAN EMAIL FINISHED MATERIAL OR SUGGESTIONS TO CAFEMOMANTHEM@EMAIL.COM


What I need is mommas with the ability to take video clips and send them via email, who are creative minded, and can put their own flair on the lyrics(costumes, kids/DH involvement, shooting on location). Message me if you're interested and if there is a part of the song you'd like to do. I already have an idea of where it should be divided, but it depends how many mommas are interested.


I will edit all the clips together and add the background music to the final thing, so I prefer lip syncing if you are going to use the music to guide you. If you want to actually sing let me know and I will send you the instrumental version of the song.

ETA: What I mean by lip syncing is that you will use the original version of the song but lip sync my lyrics to fit the beat. Then I remove the audio and replace it with the song I am going to record using a friend of mine who has agreed to sing the song(a guy, in falsetto), and he will match his voice to whoever is lip syncing. SO we need the video before the audio.

Once sections have been claimed, I'll indicate in red. First come first serve!

HOWEVER, I can mesh together several clips of the same thing, which could be cool! Like 3 or 4 mommies neglecting their carts, etc.






To the tune of "Sexy and I know it"



When I log on at night, girls be bitchin, want to start a fight

The instrumental video is in replies if anyone wants to practice.






I will also accept use of your screen name for the clips in certain parts. I plan on inserting random "salutes" where I will use ridiculous objects or men dressed as women for the salute. If i could get some "popular" screen names it would crack people up. If you're willing to "donate" your screen name just reply here and say who/what you want for your fake salute.

I NEED SOMEONE WILLING TO HAVE AN OLDER CHILD(OLD ENOUGH TO LOOK SILLY) "REAR FACE" IN A VIDEO OR PICTURE FOR ONE OF THE INSERT SHOTS!

I ALSO NEED SOMEONE WITH ORIGINAL TROLL DOLLS TO FILM A CLIP OF THEM RUNNING THE DOLLS ACROSS A COMPUTER KEYBOARD, IT CAN SHOW YOUR FACE OR NOT.

ANYONE WHO WANTS TO FILM SCENES REPRESENTING FAMOUS POSTS IN CM HISTORY, I AM INTERESTED IN YOUR IDEAS!

Oh, and if you want to be credited for your part in the video, include that when you send your contribution. Either your real name or screen name. And because I used to make short films for a living, there is a good chance I will be able to get some exposure for this outside Cafemom.

Includes the original chair saga started here on Cafemom, updates, and other anecdotes.
