A Niagara artist and entrepreneur is once again trying to put a little spirit into the Christmas season in her own small way.
Jennifer Blakeley, founder of Alphabet Photography, has created a new holiday-themed Youtube video called “Musical Interruption.”
The video features more than a dozen employees working in the company’s Niagara Falls warehouse using everyday work items to perform the familiar musical piece Carol of the Bells.
“The goal of this video is to entertain people even for just a few brief minutes during their hectic schedules this Holiday season, and I think we’ve accomplished that with what I’d like to call a Musical Interruption,” said Blakeley.
“I hope the video will inspire people this holiday season, and remind them to take time to celebrate the spirit of Christmas.”
More than eight weeks of planning went into the creation of the video, with more than 80 takes.
In all, said Blakely, the song was rehearsed more than 125 times, with over 720 person-hours going into the performance and recording of the video.
Blakeley’s first production entitled Christmas Food Court Flash Mob holds the record for most-watched flash mob on YouTube with more than 38.9 million views.
