A Happy Slip video, brought to you by Xoom.com
October 18, 2007
Money transfer company Xoom.com teamed up with Christine Gambito, better known as Happy Slip, to come up with a funny sketch about a grandmother's problem and how Xoom, of course, solves it.
In the video entitled Lola in Trouble, the characters — all played by Gambito — deal with the money problem of Happy Slip's lola (grandmother) who is in the Philippines.
Watch the Lola in Trouble video below.
My favorite part: "Exh-ooom from the tomb!"
Gambito, widely known on the internet as "Happy Slip," is a Filipino-American who became an internet celebrity following the popularity of her sketches on YouTube and other video sharing sites.
