CELEBRITY BANDS SING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR FRIENDS

Here’s a fun way to say happy birthday to someone. Have a rock group sing it to them, with a personalized message at the end. You can sing along and add your own face if you like.

It’s a free Facebook app called “Say it with Skype.” Type in a friend’s first name and get a choice of Facebook contacts with the same name. Then choose a rock group. We hadn’t heard of any of them, but then again we’d undoubtedly fail any pop-culture quiz. They’re supposedly well-known: Bowling for Soup, CSS, Parlotones, Imogen Heap, Ash, Charlie Simpson, Body Language, Scarlet Grey, and Kill the Young. At the end of the video the group will hold up signs saying “Happy Birthday Judi, from Bob and Joy,” or something like that.

When we chose the sing-along option, we saw ourselves singing in one of the four video panels, the others being filled by celebrities we never heard of. If you don’t sing along, your Facebook profile photo is displayed instead. You don’t have to do anything with your creation. But if you want to share, it takes one click to post it to your friend’s Facebook wall. You can also copy the link and add it to an email.
