Normally when I hear the words "Halloween" and "Rap" in the same sentence I turn and run screaming from the room leaving a cartoon-like outline of me in the wall.
But this is different. No running. No screaming.
Comedy video magnate JibJab just launched some ghoulish new Halloween eCard videos including the "Halloween Rap," a hip hop Halloween eCard where you can cast yourself to rap as a Witch, Dracula, Mummy, Frankenstein or his Bride and it's just crazy enough to work.
Take a look at the still to the right and you'll see that all the Universal-like monsters are there complete with Karaoke sing along words on the bottom of the screen.
JibJab specializes in these "Starring You" Sendables and make it easy for you to star in a JibJab video. All you need to do is upload a picture of yourself either from your computer or Facebook, then using JibJab's simple tools crop the picture down to only your head and drag and drop it into the character of your choice. Blammo! You're a rapping monster. (I call Werewolf! Nuh HUH. I called it! You be The Mummy.)
You can then share your creation with others via email or Facebook, share the link anywhere you please like Twitter or MySpace, or embed it into your blog. You are also able to download to save it forever or upload to your YouTube account.
There's a bunch of different "Starring You" eCards to pick from: like "Frankenstein in a Minute," "Night of the Living Deadish" and the forever Halloween song "Monster Mash."
"Monster Rap" is free and the song is catchy enough to remind you of a cross between Freddy Krueger's "Do the Freddy" dance hit and a C and C Music Factory song... by way of the Universal Monsters. Total kitschy fun. Check out all the Halloween eCards from JibJab.com HERE.
