SAN DIEGO -- To promote its auditions for the upcoming concert semester, the San Diego Gay Men's Chorus (SDGMC) created a parody of Carly Rae Jepsen's hit music video, "Call Me Maybe."
In the style of many other people and groups -- including the Harvard baseball team -- who have created their own version of Jepsen's popular video, SDGMC's video includes a group of chorus members fawning over a sexy neighbor. Throughout the video, cast members hold up signs promoting the upcoming auditions, which will take place Sept. 8-10 at the chorus' rehearsal space at the University Christian Church in Hillcrest.
The group filmed the video in one afternoon and Ed Gillman, a member of the chorus with videography experience, directed the shoot and did the final editing.
SDGMC has entertained San Diego audiences for more than 25 years, and includes over 130 singing members, making it one of the largest choruses of its type in the world.
Chorus members will begin rehearsing in September for their annual holiday concert, "Ice & Spice," to be held Saturday, Dec. 15 and Sunday, Dec. 16 at the Balboa Theatre.
