And now for something completely different. The Fountainheads, a group of graduates and students from Midreshet Ein Prat in the Judean desert, have released Escape From Egypt, a new Passover video with interactive features.
The very talented Fountainheads, whose music videos we have shared in previous years for Passover, Sukkot, Hanukkah, Purim, Rosh Hashanah, and Israel Independence Day, are breaking ground with an internet video that lets you choose the direction of the action.
In the style of the Choose Your Own Adventure series of children's books, the action stops at six points and you're asked to choose what happens next. It's a lot of fun, and it's the most elaborate Passover video we've seen so far. The singing, acting, choreography, and costumes make this a winner.
Through their videos and live performances, the Fountainheads' work is enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. The Fountainheads perform at special events, trips, concerts, weddings, and simchas in Israel, and also tour overseas a few times a year.
Because this is an interactive video, we can't embed it in Jewish Humor Central like the videos that we share every day. You'll have to take an extra step to see it, but trust us, it will be worth the effort.
All you have to do to see it is click on the words Escape From Egypt, and you'll be at the Fountainheads' website where clicking on the arrow in the center of the page will start the action. (PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU WANT TO WATCH THIS VIDEO FROM AN IPAD OR IPHONE YOU WILL HAVE TO DOWNLOAD THE FREE INTERLUDE PLAYER APP FROM THE APPLE APPSTORE.) Enjoy!
