The internet is a funny thing. While watching this clip of Maya Rudolph delivering the national anthem (one that makes fun of all those way over the top performances of it) at Tulane University’s commencement ceremony, I saw a sidebar link to a 2012 interview with Ellen featuring Maya doing some of her best impressions. During the clip, Maya showed photos of herself she created using an app called Old Booth.
I went to my phone, looked up the app and made the purchase. I buy so few apps, I figured, what the hell. A buck and some change for a few laughs? Totally worth it.
Then I proceeded to laugh until I cried.
The app features a basic set of shots you can use and then you can unlock all other decades for $1.99. (Not sure how the app works price wise for Android users, but it’s free to start!)
I was texting images back and forth with my girl Tara and we were dying laughing.
But when I showed some of the images to my 15-year-old son, he replied, “Why do old people think this is so funny?”
If you are so compelled to join in this silly fun, download the app, share your pics on Instagram and add the following hashtags so I can see what you share: #oldbooth #czsohotrightnow (Yes, that is a veiled reference to Zoolander. Thank you, May Flaum!)
I know after looking at those images it’s hard to focus on anything else, but… our 2nd Quarter Sale at Designer Digitals is in its last full day. It wraps up Friday morning at 6 a.m. EST. Save 40% on everything in the store. Shop my collection here.
