    New ShibSibs video: "Skates to Plates"

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=Sk1rCG1mJOQ

    This video marks our first attempt at presenting scripted content. Marvel at our "professional" audio and "high-caliber" writing...

    This is first and foremost, a PARODY of many of the contestant/competition-based cooking shows seen on The Food Network and Bravo. Many thanks to shows like Top Chef, Iron Chef, and Chopped for inspiring some of the scenes in this video.

    We filmed this over the course of a day during our vacation at the end of May. We took some time to edit and we're happy to finally release it!

    We would like to extend a special thank you to Brian Boitano for assisting us with this project. Brian's new cookbook, "What Would Brian Boitano Make" is fantastic. We had a great time preparing the food during the filming process, and an even better time eating it!

    I think I died when Ross turned to the camera and the "What Would Brian Boitano Do?" song started.

    I think Alex has gained a little muscle to help throw around Maia better. For amateur skaters they certainly have a lot of money to buy expensive ingredients - lamb not to mention what a house. though alex may have been wearing a Zara suit to help keep production costs down lol.

    Too true! I'd love to see Ross take that whimsical attitude on the ice.

    So much to like in this video.
    that Boitano is the guest star.
    Excellent videography.
    And if the skating thing doesn't work out , Maia and Ross could become professional food stylists. The completed dishes look great.

    Arguably my very favorite part: the brief throwback clip of the Shibutanis (starting at approx. 6:57) that pops up in the credits.
    A very young Maia (in a tutu!) has a little wobble, but the sibs do not lose their composure and their adorable smiles do not waver.

    Maybe Boitano and/or his publisher covered some or all of the expenses of the shoot?
    The video is entertaining in its own right, but it also is good promotion for BB's book.
    (And the house is in Hawaii. Perhaps a location borrowed only for the shoot? Or just a vacation rental?)

    Even the ISU's official Facebook page has posted a link to this ShibSibs video (by sharing the USFS FB link).

    ^ it all. Ross Miner had me in stitches when he started singing! Seeing Brian in it was priceless, too. Great job by the Shibs!
