Klick Health Releases Widely Anticipated Holiday Video

TORONTO, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Today Klick Health, the world's largest independent digital health agency, releases its third annual holiday video; kicking off the holiday season in proper Klick style.  This highly anticipated holiday video - see http://www.klick.com/holiday/ - features every single Klick employee recreating their favorite internet memes.

Together, Klick employees pay tribute to some of the most recognizable and ridiculous memes out there - recreating hundreds of memes in just over 3 minutes.  From some of the most famous internet sensations, like "Gangnam Style," Rebecca Black's "Friday" and "Charlie bit my finger" to the most obscure internet memes, Klick's holiday video is sure to have even the most well-versed meme enthusiasts struggling to catch them all.

"The Klick Health holiday video is all about having fun!  We bring the entire company together to get a little ridiculous so we can share our holiday spirit with all of our friends," said Leerom Segal, President & CEO, Klick Health.  "We are very proud of our culture here at Klick and the holiday video is one of our favorite ways of bringing a little piece of Klick to the rest of the world."

This video, sure to be an instant internet hit, follows in some pretty large footsteps as Klick's previous holiday videos have both gone viral; each garnering well over 100,000 views in just a matter of weeks.  The videos have been described as "brilliant and overwhelming" by CNN, and have been featured by multiple media outlets across North America, including Comedy Central, CBC News and Marketing Magazine.

"Our holiday videos are always created entirely in-house and feature every single Klick employee - this year being no exception," said Glenn Zujew, Vice President, Creative Services and project lead of the video.  "This year we went a little crazy with memes, recreating as many as we could in just a few minutes. It's been a ton of fun, and we're really excited to see how many memes the viewers can pick out!"

To give everyone a chance to have as much fun viewing the video as we did making it, Klick is launching a brand new holiday contest with some awesome prizes for meme experts and top sharers alike.

Contestants who are able to correctly identify the most memes will win: a trip to the destination of their choice (grand prize), a Macbook Air (second prize), or an iPad Mini (third prize).  Contestants who share our holiday video and garner the most views will win: an iPad Mini (first prize) or an iPhone 5 (second prize).  Entering is simple and anyone can win after watching our holiday video online.  Submissions must be received by the competition deadline - January 13, 2012.
