In the beginning of time, people used to sleep on the ground. Then a genius invented the mattress, and sleep changed forever. Well, since the invention of computers, everyone has been doing birthday videos. But what you’re about to read will change birthday videos forever! Or maybe not.
The traditional birthday video looks something like this: friends and family shouting I love you, with your little cousin showing off his dance moves. But now Birthday video 2.0 is taking one step further to express your love.
Start by reaching out to old friends from high school to participate in the video. “Old” as in you can’t recognize them without the braces. Then physically visit memorable locations and film every special bit of those places to remind them of the experiences you shared over there: the bench where you had your first kiss, your favorite pizza place (with birthday wishes from the chef), your sunset spot…
Until this point, it’s like going from an iPhone13 to iPhone14. But here’s the game changer: Add QR codes in the video which will link to different photos, and finally (drum roll), you link them to a zoom meeting where all their friends (who participated in the previous video) will be waiting to surprise them. And let’s Partaaay!
