Once a year, it's my job to lead the creation of an Official Opposition video to entertain guests at the Alberta Legislature's annual press gallery Christmas party. Each caucus - as well as the press gallery itself - brings a short, ideally funny, self-deprecating video that summarizes the year in provincial politics. It's a task I anticipate with a mix of delight and aversion; it's a fun job, but also a stressful one simply because it's a busy time of year.
I cannot, of course, divulge the plot of this year's Alberta Liberal video, but the picture above provides a clue to its general theme. It's certainly the most ambitious of the videos I've worked on for caucus. On Thursday night, I'll find out if people think it's funny.
