Wear your Ugly Sweater with Stand Up To Cancer!

JibJab is happy to support our friends at Stand Up To Cancer as we all don our kitschiest couture this holiday season! For the second year in a row, Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) is asking celebrators around the world to proudly rock their hideous holiday-themed sweaters as a way to raise critical funds for […]

New Thanksgiving eCards!

Thanksgiving will soon be here, and we have two new eCards to kick off the season — Cook A Turkey and Biker Thanksgiving! We’ve all had that first-time-cooking-a-turkey moment. Hopefully yours went better than it did in our new eCard, Cook A Turkey! Send this card starring the chef of your Thanksgiving dinner to show […]

Behind The Scenes of JUMP!

This Easter we brought back a 90s hip hop hit, Jump by Kriss Kross, and put a JibJab spin on it for our new Easter eCard. Kurt, Megan, Lauren, Nate and Romney, all artists on the production team, were cool enough to volunteer to literally JUMP for 6 hours while shooting. Take a look at some […]

Behind the Scenes of I’m Looking Over a 4 Leaf Clover

Our new St Patrick’s Day Starring You eCard features four singers in green pinstripes! We went behind the scenes to see how I’m Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover was created… We loved watching Looney Tunes as kids, not only for the awesome animation, but for some pretty sweet music too! In the short “Operation: […]

Behind the Scenes – Sled Race

For years we’ve done all sorts of different types of Holiday cards, from dancing mariachi bands, to rocking head bangers, to singing elves. One of our older eCards, SnowBall Fight, remains a favorite, so to help bring that element back we figured what better winter-way to compete again your loved ones than with a good […]

Elf Madness!

With the smell of pumpkin pie in the air and the sound of sleigh bells in the distance, we all know the holidays are fast approaching. A great way to spread holiday cheer is with our funny eCards. This season we’ve hyped our traditional eCard by adding the ability to turn up to 20 of your […]

Behind the Scenes of Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe

After racking our brains for romantic locations for our new Starring You Valentine’s Day eCard, we decided what better place to bring a date than a roller skating rink. We scouted around Los Angeles and found Moonlight Rollerway, a classic rink with some disco flare. Not only did we have the chance to get away from the […]

Holiday Fever Has Hit JibJab…Are You Next?

We have been very busy at JibJab over the last few months getting ready for the holidays! We have been rockin around the office with our party hop version of Rockin Around the Christmas Tree.  We hit up the north pole and found out that penguins love punk rock versions of Winter Wonderland. And lastly, […]

Putting the Hair in the Hairband

Holiday Rock was almost finished and looked great.  It needed one final touch to take it above and beyond anything we’ve ever done before. We broke new ground with this one.  Maybe even made some internet history…

5 Versions!?!

We set out to make make FIVE SEPARATE versions of every holiday piece we produced this year, which was a massive challenge.  Why so many versions of each video?  For casting we wanted to let people choose between a video featuring anywhere between 1-5 folks, meaning different layouts, grouping and shots for every incarnation.  While […]

Happi Honika!

We are crazy about rapper Smooth-E’s Honika Electronica!  The Tron spoofing song premiered last year before the new film even started advertising, making the rap almost better this year since the movie’s hype has grown.  With that in mind that we decided to contact the world’s greatest Jewish rapper to see if we could get […]

PURE ROCKIN’ ENERGY

The only thing more fun than making a Holiday Rock video on our website is making a Holiday Rock video FOR our website.  Our entire staff was amped to rock out for the taping of our biggest and baddest holiday card ever.  While the focus of the final video is that it’s STARRING YOU, here’s […]

Pics From The JibJab Rock Show!

We really got to live out childhood dreams on the shoot for Holiday Rock.  On the day of filming we invited the entire JibJab staff down to the venue to rock out with us and create a lively crowd of rockers, along with any and all unemployed friends we knew (there are a lot of […]

Drums and Dreidels

We filmed Holiday Rock and Hanukkah Rock on the same day and one of the nicer little touches that you may notice in the background was this hand painted Dreidel bass drum image, created by Justin.

Suiting Up Rock Stars!

For both Hanukkah Rock and Holiday Rock we wanted the boys of Rock Sugar to be sporting seriously decorative duds.  To accomplish this, we reteamed with costume designer Leighton Bowers, who had previously helped us bring the super-suit in He’s Barack Obama to life last year.  As if that wasn’t cool enough, she has also […]
