Friends of JibJab,
We have some news that many of you will not like. After 10 years of producing JibJab Year in Review music videos, we have decided that 2014 would be the last year.
Why did we make that decision? First, completing a decade of Year in Review videos felt like quite an accomplishment. Second, after 10 years of producing them, the creative format started to feel stale to us. If we couldn’t get excited about it, we knew we’d never deliver a winner. Third, our creative siren is calling us in different directions – namely our new JibJab app (http://apple.co/1CGo9Ov) and our kids and family brand, StoryBots (http://apple.co/1MZQMvv).
For those of you who were looking forward to our Year in Review video, we are truly sorry to disappoint you. Our mission to make “Billions of People Happy” remains unchanged and we hope our newer initiatives deliver some smiles and laughs to you and the people you care about this holiday season.
