We got a real kick out of Alison’s video and thought… what if we took the Hometown All Stars and created a Chinese food fight? It is certain to capture a child’s imagination—who doesn’t wish they could throw food at dinner time?
Woodstock, New York (PRWEB) September 24, 2014
Kevin Christofora, author of Hometown All Stars and little league coach, has released a new YouTube video, “I Like Chinese Food (Fights)”, which pays homage to the popular video “I Like Chinese Food”, which, has received over 15.5 million views since its release. The original video, recorded by young Alison Gold and viral video creator Patrice Wilson, inspired Christofora to create a version of the video that appealed to children of his little league team’s age, staging a giant food fight, featuring Chinese food favorites: lo mein noodles, rice, spring rolls, pot stickers, egg rolls, and fortune cookies.
Christofora says of his inspiration to create the video, “We got a real kick out of Alison’s video and thought… what if we took the Hometown All Stars and created a Chinese food fight? It is certain to capture a child’s imagination—who doesn’t wish they could throw food at dinner time? Kids would love seeing other kids getting messy with noodles, broccoli, and rice. I had reservations about wasting food, so I made sure that an equal amount of food was donated to local food banks.” He adds, “It was all done in good fun, and you can only imagine how the kids jumped right in and had a ball taping this video. Some even asked if they could be invited next year.”
The children who were involved in the food fight are the same children who inspired Christofora’s children’s book series, Hometown All Stars. Written for four to seven-year-olds, Hometown All Stars is designed to teach baseball through reading, in order to encourage children to get outside, away from the television and devices, or, as Christofora puts it, “More green, less screen.”
