New Jingle for GoodKnitKisses videos!

Music change! So if anyone noticed I changed my video music on my latest video in making a Cowl for Lion Brand Yarns on the Martha Stewart Loom. I cannot go back and change my old videos to this, unless I upload again, but I recently found out the music was associated with a terribly explicit song! DON'T ask me to tell you. It is shocking, embarrassing & really had me upset.

The jingle was originally written & approved for free use for Apple iMovie years ago but this "artist" put it in his music later and it's now registered so YouTube analyzed and flagged it. (The jingle in iMovie was named Buddy). My video was flagged for explicit lyrics, since I started to put the whole song in this time, can you believe?!!

So....you won't be hearing my old jingle anymore. It is a shame since I really liked it. But now, although I can legally use it and fight to win, I cannot get those awful lyrics out of my head. They do not represent me or GoodKnit Kisses. Thanks for reading!! -Kristen

Tell me your thoughts in comments below! Do you think I should have kept them? Do you like the new jingle?

  3. Misty C they were raunchy in nature. The jingle I used didn't have vocals as it was the original from many years ago. I can tell you this other person must have taken that and recorded vocals over it an put on his CD. His whole CD is nasty and offensive.

  6. I have heard that same jingle in a commercial for the USPS. It's a small business owner commercial to encourage folks to buy their own postal scale. I wonder if they know the origins of that song...

My name is Kristen. I’m an Interior Designer & knitwear designer as well as a YouTube Tutorial filmmaker & Video Host for crafts, knitting and more. My Loom Knitting tutorials are great for Knitters (or any crafter) who wanna try their hand and want to know how to convert their stitches over to the loom. Many do it to ease their hands/carpel tunnel or work faster. It’s definitely a growing trend for traditional knitters to take up or people who love crafting with yarn! My site is GoodKnitKisses or YOUTUBE. I also write and sell my own loom patterns on my ETSY shop and on Vivaloom.com  I look forward to meeting new people and sharing the love of fiber arts :-) -Kristen
