“There was a time when Soul Train was the definitive place to learn to dance,” said Xochil Arkin, Soul Train’s Head of Business Development. “We are thrilled to be working with JibJab and look forward to introducing Soul Train’s old school moves to a brand new audience.”
JibJab, a leader in digital greeting cards, gained popularity during the 2004 presidential race with it’s parody of presidential George Bush and John Kerry singing “This Land is Your Land.” The clip attracted 80 million viewers.
