When You Work At A Museum is a website dedicated, like here, to this folks who know the joys, pains and mixed bag of working for art galleries, museums etc, and they have sort of accidentally created a monster.
Having shared a video created by a museum, based on Farrell William's Happy video, they got a few more videos sent to them, and joked about a dance off. Then it got serious, and museums across the globe got in touch to ask "we've not made one yet, but would like to..."
Cue over 30 venues now submitting their dance off contenders to the ring, and a series of semi finals and finals where you get to vote. Find out more here. You can now vote on the second two contenders.
Do, please keep an eye on this over the next few weeks, as it looks to be crazed and just enjoyable.
My vote yesterday went to the Hamilton Museum of Steam of Technology, for bravely picking a slightly obscure song, rewriting the whole thing especially for their venue, singing it themselves, explaining science in their video, and holding what looks like the strangest rave ever. (Even though the other video had Asian Harry Potter cuddling a human skull in a library...)
