What else can be said after seeing this and getting an invite from Risa to the Arkansas show (Iknow she sent the invite out to all but I need yo feel special.) I think that me and my mama are going have to go to North Little rock and check it out.... I am totally excited. The weather and the children will be the only bumps in the road. So I was already praying for good weather not warm or anything just dry and now I need ro pray that ALL my children stay healthy. Did I mention that I am soo excited!!!!!
Okay thke care guys. This is better than Christmas

BBC said...

"Dear Lord, we pray that these checks would all clear..." LOL!

I thought the fried egg was the sun, but couldn't figure out what the guy in strips of red and beige was. What can I say? I'm slow!

Tawny said...

Lol I love it. I got the bacon right away but didn't notice the egg at first. I think you should've given in and danced at the end ;)

Will we get to see the "Empty Me" video?

Carmen said...

Chris,
Loved this video!!! I laughed so hard as well as my son. He thought it was great.
Looking forward to the Arkansas show!

Hilarious! :) Am I the only one who saw Mitch as Choreographer Simon Richards or am I making that up? Thought someone else would have caught that. So maybe I'm wrong.

Anyway - love it! :)

Where are the biscuits? Hot Rolls? I'm thinking there's a whole 'nuther connection there. Rise?

:) Love your music

rosalee said...

Great video!

Lori -
I made reference to Mitch (not by name) in the prior blog. So did Risa. He's also front page on chris-sligh.info.

I see that VFTW has picked up on the video.

Makes me hungry.

Bully said...

Heh! Arise with the morning...(and make yourself some breakfast??)
You are hilarious-- and I agree, Chubby is SO not out! :-)

Thanks for sharing this! Really clever, and we always need more fun in life.

My husband is right. Bacon makes everything better!!!

Oh and I almost snarfed my coffee but I am happy for the laugh!

I love your voice. You could sing the phone book and I'd buy it.

Thank-you!

-Diane.

Hahahahahaha!
This is reminiscent of my most favorite video EVER! Anyone remember Martin Short on SNL doing the synchronized swimmer documentary??

Great job, Chris! Prayer for checks clearing - the funniest!

We went out to eat tonight to Cici's Pizza, and the owners must be Christian because they play Christian radio. We heard Arise tonight! woo hoo!

This cracked me up! Thank you so much! Laughter is great for your health and your spirit. Is the director with the bullhorn your brother Chris? He looks like you.
