A Little Break from PR and Marketing

It’s Facebook question of the week time (clap, clap, clap)!

Except.

I didn’t record a video.

I’m not really sure what happened. Typically I get up long before the sun comes up. This morning, however, Mr. D’s alarm went off at 5:45 and it woke me from the dead.

It means I was a little more than an hour behind.

Which equates to no video. Well, no video from me.

Instead I thought I’d share a video with you that had me laughing so hard, I was crying.

I was on the El, headed to the Loop to have drinks with Danny Brown and some of our social media friends, while I watched this. I was laughing out loud.

Sitting by myself, earphones in, on the train.

Laughing. Out. Loud.

Let’s be real. Ellen, by herself, is hilarious. When you add in Kristin Bell and a sloth, downright gut belly laughing ensues.

I thought it was worth having its own blog post vs. being one of five in Gin and Topics tomorrow.

I hope you find it as hilarious as I did.

If you can’t see it in your Reader or email, click here. Trust me. You want to watch this.

Oh! And go stop by our Facebook page and leave us a question on the wall. That way I’ll feel guilty if I skip the video again.

I so didn't think I was gonna laugh. Especially when I first started watching it. But when she got up out of bed and was positively joyful about the slot coming to her party, it was hysterical. Reminded me of when my kids were little and had the same sort of reaction. They were about 4 years old at the time.

Dammit I'm sitting here crying with laughter. Ellen + Kristen Bell + Sloth = perfect storm of comedy. Seriously, though, people who aren't afraid to show their "kid-side" are the best. Remember when that director won the Oscar for Life is Beautiful and ran across the tops of the chairs? We all need to tap into that. Thanks for sharing this.

If a sloth and a hedgehog had a cuteness contest, who would win?

That's the best thing I've seen this morning. Thank you.

p.s. How do you get out of bed before 5 a.m.? That's impressive.

I shared this a few days ago because it absolutely made my day. I was practically crying I was laughing so hard -- and because her reactions are so darn cute!

I LOVED this video!! I was cracking up at work when i watched it...my cube mates definitely think I'm crazy with my random laughing outbursts. Kristen Bell is adorable, and I especially loved the end where she says "He's coming for the party?!"

@John_Trader1 Hedgehog for me. Sloths are cute but I always think of Ice Age. This makes me think of John Leguizamo and then the hedgehog wins. :)

@KenzDawn I loved how she said her emotional scale is between three and seven. So funny!

@ginidietrich That sloth video WAS too funny. I guess we're all a little crazy in our own way...and I love when we get to show it. ;)

@adamjury Sounds like fun. I'm a "Bones" fan myself. :) (And used to be a Buffy/Angel addict)

@ginidietrich Me, too. I love when people are willing to share their humanity - even if it means looking stupid or ugly or weird.
