“As part of celebrating 50 years of inspiring fun family moments with music, Memorex is thrilled to share quality WeTime with our family, friends and Yo Gabba Gabba! during this exciting virtual birthday party event,” said Jessica Walton, global brand director for Memorex. “As one of the most popular children’s television series and cast of characters today, Yo Gabba Gabba! is sure to bring a level of fun and party excitement worthy of a milestone birthday bash of this nature.”
Hundreds participated in Memorex’s Dancey Dance video contest on Facebook leading up to the event. One groovy family, the Reas from Columbia, Pa., was chosen to swing, spin, shimmy and strut with the cast during the live virtual birthday party event Sept. 9. Other friends of Yo Gabba Gabba! will be tuning in across the country, including 16 bloggers exclusively chosen to boogie along with party kits provided by Memorex.
Leslie Hall, one of Yo Gabba Gabba!’s best buds and a frequent guest on the show, will host the bash, bringing you live red carpet coverage and offering a behind-the-scenes look at all of the festivities!
