Ok, so this worked out significantly better than expected. Sure, this was the longest WTF that we ever filmed (as far as I can remember), but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
We’ve just got a few things we’re confused about. HOW IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR KIDS!? This was pretty complicated. It didn’t come with pre-melted chocolate, and melting it in a double boiler is very much an adult thing to do. Making sure that water doesn’t get into the chocolate mix is tough if you don’t have an adult’s manual dexterity. And the patience required is astronomical! Martina worked at melting that chocolate for over 15 minutes. You think a kid is gonna do the same? And you can’t just melt chocolate in a microwave (Idunno: can you?) It takes a lot of effort! But we went through it all…and it was worth it! These chocolates were great!
More importantly, we finally got to use a song that we really liked but had no place for. The song for the Popo is just so chipper and fun, but it didn’t really fit any of our videos. When we finally got to use it for this one we both stood up and danced to it. If you can get anything from this video, I hope it’s a love for the song that ends the video. IT’S SO FUN AND WHIMSICAL! It sounds like great adventures are happening between cute animals. AAWWW! I love it. We have a bunch of songs we love that we can’t seem to fit into our videos. I’m glad we finally got this one off the list.
On a similarly related note, we wanted to announce the winners of our Japanese Candy package giveaway contest that we announced last week. We didn’t shoot a FAPFAP this week (because Martina was sick) so we couldn’t announce it then, but we’re announcing it now. Woohoo! An the winners are:

We’ll send you messages on how you can claim your prizes. Woohoo! Just in time for Halloween!
Otherwise, if you want to make some 3D chocolate on your own, you can pick this thing up on Gmarket and get to playing with your very own chocolate Popo right away!
