Have you seen this great video yet? It's in the process of going viral on YouTube. Not only is it a wonderfully fresh, modern take on that old Christmas carol Little Drummer Boy, it was created by a 16 year old Winnipeg high school student named Sean Quigley. He skipped school one day last month to make this video.
Sean arranged the music, played every instrument, drummed and sang, as well as directed, shot and edited the video. His youthful enthusiasm and talent just leap off the screen! And who else but a crazy Winnipeg teenager would be out in the snow wearing shorts and no parka!
I also love that the City itself is featured in the video -- Charleswood, Assiniboine Park, the Forks, the Riel Esplanade leading to St. Boniface, and of course that last shot of Sean drumming against the downtown skyline. And in true Canadian multicultural tradition, Merry Christmas greetings appear on signs throughout the video in several different languages.
