Watch Ryan and Travis Accept the Git Up United Challenge [VIDEO]
The song "Git Up" from Blano Brown has become a viral hit thanks in part to the dance that goes along with. Think "Electric Slide," "Cupid Shuffle," "Macarena," et al. The dance led to the creation of thousands upon thousands of videos of people performing the routine (some more successfully than others). The United Way of Southwestern Indiana noticed trend and decided to use it as a fundraising opportunity by creating the "Git Up United Challenge" (a.k.a. #gitupunitedwaychallenge). They asked business and members of the community to have fun and get creative by filming themselves doing the dance, then challenging others to do the same. Challenge accepted.
Leslie, Travis, and I put our heads together and came up with this.
WARNING: The outfits Travis and I are wearing have been known to cause nausea in some people.
Once your stomach has settled a bit, we need you to help us out by reacting to and sharing the video on social media. The business whose video with the most reactions and shares between now and September 10th will have $1,000 donated to the United Way in their name by Deaconess Hospital, and have their video played at the United Way's upcoming "Breakfast at Bosse" event at Bosse Field.
