Kudos to the Portual-based team that produced it.
Now, others are jumping on the bandwagon after all the buzz that’s been going around (that’s the power of social media, right?).
I present to you this time . . . A Facebook Christmas story. . .
While there are critics who’s knee-jerk reactions will be to shout out how shallow and trendy these versions are — I wonder if you really quizzed people, especially younger ones, about the actual storyline — would they be able to tell the story better before they saw these videos or afterwards?
I would be willing to bet that since this video is so contextualized to the Facebook generation, a good portion of the group would be able to reconstruct the basics of the storyline in much better fashion than through the accumulated exposure to all the Christmas plays at church over the year as they were growing up.
Take a look for yourself at this video:
QUESTION: Does this video tell the story well enough?
