Elf on Film {Buddy the Elf 2013}


If you have followed this blog for some time, then you are well aquainted with my Elf On the Shelf, Buddy Fiddlesticks McChristmaspants.  What started out as a fun activity with my kids, soon turned into pure adult entertainment.  The Hubbs and I have broken every rule when it comes to bringing you Buddy and his adventures.  And by every rule I mean every Facebook rule as we got reported last year. Apparently my Elf needs some rehab.  I was nervous this year though, how do you top what you feel was your Olympic Gold last year... 


I mean how does one top this situation?


Oh, right.  That's how.
Send your rehab emails now.

I was just about to give up on Buddy and trying to create crazy shenannigans until I was listening to the radio a few days after Thanksgiving and had an idea.  Why not bring Buddy to life?  Why not have him start in remakes of some of the most popular songs and videos of the last year.  So that's what we did, and when I say we, I mean me and my Hubbs who is part of the Buddy Staging Team.   

Getting all these videos to come to life was fun and challenging and I hope brought some holiday cheer to those of you sick of seeing elves bring hot chocolate and homemade cookies to children everywhere.  I think Buddy brought the kids some candy and some hot chocolate three weeks ago, then he quit because he is obviously an Instagram star now.  

These short 15 second videos for Instagram were all made via Flipgram.  All music used was purchased via iTunes.  With the exception of the last video, where I staged that in my living room, using my tree and my iPad, and YouTube.

Step one: cut a hole in the box...




He can't stop, and he won't stop...




He lives for the applause...




His name is...




You're the hottest elf in this place...




He's gonna show you a good time...




He just wanted to break your walls...

What was your favorite video this year?  I think mine is Suit and Tie... 

Merry Christmas from me, the Buddy Staging Team, and Buddy himself.

  1. Your buddy videos always made my day! :) my favorite was with "blurred lines" & the Barbie dolls. I was dying laughing. It was the first one I saw that you posted and I was hooked!

  2. I don't have kids, and by the time I DO have kids that are old enough, elf on the shelf will probably be a thing of the past....but this is hysterical - you just made my day. :)
