The Digital Story of the Nativity

Christmas is almost here and lately alot of videos have gone viral relating to the holidays.
Few weeks ago i shared with you that 'flash mob' video in the mall in Welland, Ontatio where the mall patrons all join in singing 'Messiah Hallelujah'. You can revisit that video here: http://blogs.kiss985.com/shyguy/2010/12/06/flash-mob-at-seaway-mall-in-welland/
And...there's been a pretty clever Chanukah/Jewish related video thats been going around the last couple weeks where a bunch of students at Yeshiva University's vocal group 'The Maccabeats' did a clever remake of Taio Cruz's 'Dynamite': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSJCSR4MuhU
But now my favorite one i have stumbled upon is the one i waited to share with you this week. The premise is simple. Its the story of the Nativity. The very REASON we celebrate Christmas. But what makes the video interesting is that the story is retold through the use of todays technology and gadgets. It brings a whole new perspective on a story over 2-thousand years old.
THE DIGITAL STORY OF THE NATIVITY
The video was done by a company called Excentric, based out of Portugal, where the president of the company told CNN last week that they created the video more or less to illustrate how todays social media tools can work.
The best part of the video i feel is the very end with the statement: 'Times change, the feeling remains the same'.
Isnt that the truth.
Merry Christmas to all of you (or whatever holiday you celebrate around this time of year). I hope its the greatest one yet!
