AARP's Response Video Encourages Kids to Call their Grandparents for Grandparents Day on September 9th
WASHINGTON, Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- AARP has enlisted the help of nine families to create their own "Call Me Maybe" response video, putting a new spin on the original viral sensation by Carly Rae Jepsen. The video, which is now featured on AARP's YouTube channel, aims to inspire grandchildren to call their loved ones on Grandparents Day, September 9th.
Seeking out several grandparents and their real-life grandchildren to make the hit song their own, AARP endeavored to turn "Call Me Maybe" into a heartfelt message for viewers of all ages. Produced by Alphabird, a production company based in San Francisco, the video is already one of the most watched ever on AARP's channel receiving nearly 20,000 views in less than two weeks.
