Project Christmas Camel Fail

December 13, 2011

I posted this video last Christmas, but it is so epic it is worth another look. It’s from First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach’s Project Christmas 2010.

Regular commenter Brien wrote a commentary for this video that I was too lazy to write:

That is classic! What the hell was the thought process behind bringing a live camel into the church?

Pageant Director: “Attendance was down last year at our Christmas pageant. We need a real hook for this year, something to pack ‘em in!”

Sycophant 1: “Maybe we could get Rick Pino to perform?”

PD: “Nah, he’s so five minutes ago…”

Sycophant 2: “How about a live camel? We could get one of the kids to lead him in from the atrium, down the aisle, and into the back corner of the stage.”

PD: “I love it! A large animal, known to be ill-tempered and skittish, bring it in the darkened, unfamiliar building with a bunch of camera flashes going off all around it! We’ll let one of the youth who has a horse, or maybe a large dog, lead it in… surely that’s no different from handling a camel! How could that possibly go wrong?!”

I wonder if they canceled the camel for this year?

    not sure if that was an actual choir in the background but if it was, they showed extreme professionalism in continuing the song despite the camel’s unfortunate tumble.

    What happens when megachurches play “Can You Top This?” with their Christmas paegants.
