Reviving a favorite video by Jay Christensen featuring the humorous skating antics of McQuaid Boo shot last year, the Minnesota friends promote their upcoming project.
Last winter, McQuaid Boo took to the ice at White Bear Lake to show off his skating skills and promote Minnesota’s winter activities. The video has a touch of humor as Boo wears an open shirt, shorts, and a captain’s hat while drinking a beer on the ice.
Founder of Jay Byrd Films, Jay Christensen recorded his friend’s performance using a GoPro equipped drone, and the video went viral. The pair have worked together on several videos to highlight Minnesota’s culture.
No time is more perfect than winter to show off the gorgeous scenery and many fun recreational activities available in Minnesota’s vast landscape. Christensen and Boo’s next project involves the Winter Classic.
Their goal is to capture the Minnesota Wild NHL Winter Classic footage in a one-take drone video. It will be similar to the famous film they shot earlier at a local bowling alley.
By promoting the different aspects of Minnesota life, Christensen hopes to draw people in to experience all that Minnesota offers and show its citizens how great their state is.
With the Winter Classic ahead of them and other projects such as an ice-skating duet featuring McQuaid Boo and U. S. Olympian Michelle Kwan in the works, there’s no end to Christensen’s creativity.
