TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--‘Tis the season for epic holiday videos if Klick Health’s Epic Office #HolidayRemix is any indication. Blasting toward half a million views, the video surpassed 418,000 views this morning, merely three days after launching.
Released on December 2nd at klick.com/holiday, the video stars YouTube sensation Andrew Huang and almost all of the company’s 400+ employees – orchestrating 134 everyday office sounds, looped and re-looped 1,256 times, to create a unique electronica rendition of Jingle Bells and high-octane dance party that can best be described as ‘David Guetta meets A Christmas Story.’
Early reviews of the video have been glowing. American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest wrote, “You've never heard Jingle Bells like this before,” while TastefullyOffensive.com called it “one of the coolest holiday jingles ever.” According to Canoe tech writer Greg Gazin, “…not only will you be hilariously entertained, but knowing what went in to making this video you’ll watch and listen for all the intricacies and gain appreciation for Huang’s creative genius.”
Huang is known for producing and starring in unconventional music videos, including covers of the Breaking Bad theme using meth lab equipment, and 99 Red Balloons using, what else, red balloons. Klick’s Epic Office Holiday Remix video marks Huang’s first holiday-themed video.
“Making our holiday video with Andrew was a ton of fun," said Klick's SVP Executive Creative Director Glenn Zujew. “We filmed for over 50 hours and it was worth every minute. We're thrilled so many people are loving it."
