It’s only necessary to celebrate the day you become a man by going big. So proving there is nothing more epic than dancing in front of a green screen complete with neon colours and seizure-inducing backgrounds, this crew thought it would be a good idea to commemorate the occasion by making a music video.
With some very happening shades and rocking dance moves, making a music video is simply THE BEST way to celebrate your Bar Mitzvah while growing up in the ’80s/’90s.
The day: March 14,1992. Somewhere in the suburbs of Chicago, Shaun Sperling had his Bar Mitzvah and became a man. To mark the occasion, Shaun decided to have a Madonna theme for his celebration. So naturally, he performed a dance to her classic “Vogue” to get the party started.
Former NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker reportedly shelled out $250,000 to throw a bar mitzvah for his son Andrew on Saturday night. And with that money, he was able to get rap sensation Drake to perform at the party.
Zucker originally wanted to hire Kanye West to perform, but after learning that the rapper’s fee would total $1 million, he opted for Drake.
The event, which took place at the Four Seasons New York, included a performance by rapper Drake and also featured a photo booth, bracelet-making lounge and station to make customized phone covers. Customized Converse sneakers were handed out to guests as gifts. Sounds like a sweet party to me. Especially the free shoes part.
Among those in attendance were Katie Couric, who previously worked with Zucker on NBC’s Today and is now developing a syndicated talk show with him.
Wow, guess Drake is still pretty humble to appear at such a low-profile party for such a low cost. Sure, it’s still a lot of money, but compared to other artist’s fees that seems pretty reasonable.
