“Always Look on the Bright Side of Life” – Ještěd, Czech Republic

Perhaps one of the more unique and delightfully unpolished videos I’ve made (because ukuleles need to have fun too), this experience was a fulfillment of my desire to make a video on the chairlift to Ještěd Mountain (home of Ještěd Tower) in Liberec. And what better song to commemorate the paralyzing fear that Laura and I experienced on our first chair lift trip to Ještěd in October than this Monty Python classic. However, it was EXTREMELY cold (in my defense, Liberec has until now been having an incredibly mild winter, so Laura and I had been lulled into a false sense of security). We had to film the video in segments, because it was too frigid to do more than one verse at a time, and hand-warming breaks were necessary. Enjoy not only the video, but also our various antics during a frozen yet adrenaline-filled ride. No need to show the bloopers after the video when the whole video is a blooper reel.
