Wesley and I were listening to the latest caspar babypants CD, This is Fun! the other day and I realized that I never did feature the video for googly eyes here on Video Friday. What was I thinking!? I don't know. I mean, young or old, who doesn't know what you mean when you say googly eyes? And how can you not have a smile on your face when you say it? Googly eyes are all about fun times. This simple video created entirely by Chris Ballew (with some input by his wife, artist Kate Endle, and Chris' daughter Josie) is fantastic in it's simplicity. You'll want to watch it again and again and you'll enjoy having the song stuck in your head all day. I'll bet it keeps a silly grin on your face and a bit of lightness in your heart all day too.
From his website, this is what Chris had to say about the song googly eyes, "We love googly eyes around our house. I will often come into the kitchen to find a sweet potato with eyes staring at me that my kids or Kate has set up. One of them ended up being named Larry the Lemon. He might get his own song someday. For now this is a love song for the googly eyes and their amazing power to make things come alive."
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you love this video as much as my family does. Just be careful who you make googly eyes to today!
