    Wink The ShibSibs' YouTube channel videos!

    I figured it was time for a separate thread for Alex and Maia Shibutani's ShibSibs YouTube channel : http://www.youtube.com/user/ShibSibs

    Their latest video production is Bloopers! (THE ICE 2012 + Champs Camp Basketball Videos): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUVRT_zPM1k

    Loved the blooper video and it's nice that everyone seemed to have a good time making the videos (except for maybe during the dunk shot segment).

    Love their channel. Seriously, they should be paid for promoting figure skating.
    On a different topic, I love Charlie's laugh.

    Maia Shibutani is an absolute delight. Alex is a savvy and unique charm.

    The two of them are fast making for one of the few hopes for skating to survive as a source of attention and enjoyment to people beyond the dwindling base of diehards who pay attention to this sport.
    The establishment does not seems to "get it" and not enough of the other skaters have what it takes to reach out beyond the "once every four years for two weeks" fan base.

    Go Shibs. Go ShibSibs.

    Here it is! [Skating & Gymnastics "Good Time" video uploaded in January 2013]: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GT1e6B34Okk
    Just realized today that this "Behind the Scenes" outtakes video (follow-up to the one above) wasn't posted in this thread: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1xZp5vN9cI

    "The Shib Sibs' Sillier Side" - new article published on the teamusa.org site: http://www.teamusa.org/Road-to-Sochi...lier-Side.aspx
    “When we were younger,” Maia said, “we used to blog a lot for the Ice Network, so last summer we decided we wanted to start a YouTube channel and focus a bit more of our energy on that. So that’s really where it started.”

    Alex remembers how their “first impromptu video” came about. Last July on their way to Sun Valley, Idaho, for “Sun Valley On Ice,” the pair was told their flight to the ice show had been canceled. So what do you do when you have five hours in a car and you’re bored? The siblings—and fellow figure skater Adam Rippon—“came up with some impromptu dance choreography in our seats—with our seatbelts on, of course—and lip-synched to the popular song, “Friday” by Rebecca Black. And the rest of the videos have gone from there,” he said.
    ...

    Alex and his sister/skating partner—who are fresh off last month’s World Figure Skating Championships in London, Ont., where the pair placed eighth—are about to enjoy some much deserved free time. Because of it, Alex said, “People can look forward to us posting a new video.”

    Ross was really fabulous, and when he turned to the camera and started lip-synching "What Would Brian Boitano Do" I think I died...

    I thought Ross excelled in the "Previously on Skates to Plates" opening clip! Looked to me like Ross was doing an absolutely fine job with the fried egg, but anyways when he flipped it, his reaction was priceless:

    Covering his face Ross fell to the floor and exclaimed: "I don't know if I can do this anymore ... It's worse than triple run-throughs!"

    Love how they alluded to that bit of eggnominy again later when they were selecting a dish from Brian's book and Maia said, "At least there's no eggs required in this recipe." Ross' reaction again was priceless.

    Great concept, good acting, fine production values, fun music video sequence, great camera work, and rockin' cameo by Brian B.

    OTOH, not so great attempt to make it work with a lighter flame ...

    The food absolutely looked yummy enough to eat. And I'll bet they did.
