Hello movers and shakers of Vimeo land!

We thought we'd give you a weekend project that would tap into your grooving capabilities.
Inspired by this video from lonelysandwich, and this one from Robin Cantrell, we'd like to challenge you, our brave camera-loving pals, to make a video of yourself or a friend (or yourself and a friend!) dancing in public. Feel free to get down in a supermarket, on the subway, in a park, or anywhere else where dancing is unexpected yet begging to be done. To keep things interesting, we're going to be looking for an emphasis on compelling editing and choreography. Plus, all of your gyrations must be done to the beat of this this song, "Lesson 3" by Steinski & Double Dee. (To download the track, click here ) Feel free to edit the song however you see fit!

Make sure to submit your video to the Weekend Project Group. Please note that the Community Staff will approve videos for inclusion into the Group and will also be selecting the winning videos.

The winner gets a Plus account (for Basic members) or 25,000 HD Embeds (for Plus members). The runner-up gets an extra 1 GB of upload capacity (for Basic users) or 10,000 HD Embeds (for Plus members). Make sure you only submit videos made specifically for this weekend project!

Submissions are due on Tuesday (5/25) at 11:59PM (EST).

We're looking forward to your submissions. Don't hurt yourselves!

UPDATE

This sounds like a video mashup in the making? Or no plans for that? :-)

I hope Tom is right... everyone dancing to the same song just begs for a mega-video!

I am wishing for the same thing as Kiera and Tom... if they do a mash-up of all the videos, that would be so spectacular!
If anyone has any info on whether that's the plan or not, let me know... I'm quite curious! :)

Definitely glad to see that others are getting into the idea of meshing random acts of dancing and this site together for greater effect.

Will see what I can do for this challenge. Great song choice.
