I hope you can view this. I can view it but am not sure how public it is. I originally made it private when the song continually got blanked out but now they have added the song tag. I linked my blog to youtube so hopefully that will work.
This is the full length version of our car dancing video clip featured on The Levity Project. The International video is listed in the below post or click here to watch it on YouTube.

Disclaimers This video was filmed safely in the parking lot of UTA. No subjects were at risk. No traffic violations (that we know of). No danger of any kind unless you count when Sydney was driving. HA HA. Although we did in fact car dance ALL DAY at stop lights, shopping mall parking lots, and highways in honor of International car dancing day. Our actually filming was a reenactment.
If all else fails go to Youtube-angeliasims and become a subscriber. It should show up there. IF NOT, search angeliasims, then click on the blue highlight of my name. It should take you to a channel that plays it. Hey, I don’t know how it all works. Trust me it’s there. It’s worth it! At 3:46 in the video time when you see a little three year old doing the ROBOT. Oh yeah! ROFL!
I truly believe this will bring us great joy and laughter for YEARS to come. And who knows? Maybe we can do a video every year just to check our skills.
I’ve been car dancing for as long as I can remember. Maybe I got a little more free with my moves when tinted windows became popular. I guess I thought I was semi-hidden until someone I knew saw me and never let me live it down. Eventually, I just didn’t care anymore. I busted my moves, cut my rug, and mashed those potatoes – in the car, in the grocery aisles, on the sidewalks. If the mood struck, I was DANCING.
Of course the fine art of car dancing is no fun alone, so I taught Sydney. And we didn’t just dance there but everywhere. It wasn’t too long ago we were getting down in the doorway of Pappasitos, waiting for Jason to pull the car around. Laughter bubbled over and who knows? Maybe it infected the restaurant patrons and staff. I’m sure it made a good show, or laugh. Or to them we might be The Crazies, as in the movie we recently watched.
Here is the thing, I have two little girls that are going to be my step daughters. The tradition has to be passed. We are a family of car dancers. They will teach their children, and those children theirs. I started training them last summer in the parking lot of Tom Thumb.
Let me tell ya, it didn’t take long. These kids are naturals. Imagine my delight when Lance from Jungle of Life emailed me about a special project to participate in – an International day of car dancing – brought to you by Katie from The Levity Project. If any of you were around for our mall Laugh fest it’s the same Katie, and the same Levity Project.
Our assignment – to jig it up car dancing all day and video 15-30 seconds of it. A-ha! Our mad skills would be recognized. Our greatness recorded. It was like making it to the Olympics after training all summer. Go team car dancing USA. I have to tell you, it was crazy cool. Contenders for a medal? I’ll let you decide.
I have a full length video of our car dancing day that is just not ready for release (unless you want a DVD mailed). What is ready is the official -GLOBAL- video just released today that includes our segment (3:14) that we sent in.
Great job done by ALL participants from all over the WORLD. I was stunned by the movement of this passion and where it ended up. Lance always includes a note that we are ALL CONNECTED, especially when we do a project of this kind. His post is here. Katie’s post is here.
Funny thing is, one of my GOOD friends is in this video from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. I was so surprised and happy to see her grooving away. I met her a few years ago in person with a group of online ladies in Ohio. We all met on a thirty-something Ediets message board together. Who she knows from the Levity Project? I have no idea. But TRULY, it is a small world and we are ALL connected.
What an honor to be part of this event. I can’t even describe how proud it makes me to know such a life giving group of individuals seeking out ways to touch others with love and laughter.
Get ready to smile, laugh, and don’t forget – DANCE. Please share this video with everyone you know to brighten their day.
