Ubisoft's 12 Days of Giveaways: With Just Dance 2, I'm either the Ladies Dancing or the Lords a'Leaping

This post is part of a sponsored series from Ubisoft, celebrating "12 Days of Giveaways." See below for how you can enter up to 12 times to win fun and family-friendly video games.

Back in August, for one fleeting moment, I was a dancing queen.


You remember, right?

It was BlogHer 2010 in the Ubisoft booth on the Expo Floor. Battle of the Bloggers was taking place on the Just Dance 2 stage, and I had somehow won the semi-finals dancing to Beyonce's Crazy in Love.

So it was on to the finals, to dance to The Rockafeller Skank by Fatboy Slim. It was close, oh so close, but I didn't win. Though I did manage to get all of my limb-flailing and lip-biting on film for all to see.

Ever since seeing these videos, my kids have been bugging me for a copy of Just Dance 2, and they are leaping out of their skin knowing that one is on its way to our home Right Now. (the first didn't make it in here on time, but I've been assured a replacement is on its way; back away children) And just as soon as I can get goofy film of my family dancing? You can bet I'll post some video up for all to see. I'm fair like that.

(UPDATE: ok, I did get video of my husband and brother-in-law dancing to Jungle Boogie, but in the interest of preserving my marriage and family relations, I will not post it here. Instead you can read about my latest feelings about Just Dance 2 here)

Want your own copy of Just Dance 2? Leave me a comment below and tell me which song you'd pick first if you win.

CONTEST IS CLOSED! Congratulations to commenter #37, Greenlancer who will get to try out Proud Mary very soon.
Photobucket
Thanks to everyone who entered to win!
Can't wait? Just Dance 2 is also available on both Amazon and Toys-R-Us, though Amazon squeaks a dollar off the price.

----------------------------------------------

Want more ways to win great games for the whole family? Visit each of these blogs during our 12 Days of Giveaways from now through December 3! Find their post from today and leave a comment to enter to win.

Please visit these participating bloggers for more chances to win games, including Just Dance 2 (Wii), Battle of Giants: Dinosaur Strike (Wii), Petz Fantasy (DS) and Petz Nursery (DS)!



I was selected to participate in this sponsored series by Ubisoft and Clever Girls Collective. I received a video game (it's on its way!) and compensation for my participation in this program. We believe in Blog With Integrity.

I'm torn between The Ting Tings "That's Not My Name" and Mika "Big Girl". But I think I'm going to have to go with "It's Raining Men". Hallelujah.

Blogger AnnetteK said...

It would have to be "Wake me up before you go go." I LOVED Wham! in junior high! My hairbrush was a fabulous microphone back then. ;)

Def the jungle boogie!

Cosmic Girl or Wake Me Up Before You Go Go... haha! We love Just Dance and can not wait to try Just Dance 2.

I think I'd have to go with "It's Raining Men." Seriously.

Anonymous Julie @ The Mom Slant said...

Tik Tok, if only because I want to hear Tacy sing her chicken version parody while I dance.

And Mrs. Chicky, you and I are going to dance-off to It's Raining Men. Hallelujah, indeed.

Outkast's "Hey Ya!"

Blogger C.A. Marshall said...

I pick Rihanna's SOS because while danceable, it's also kinda slow and I'm a bit uncoordinated!

4:02 PM  
Blogger Shannon said...

Oh it would have to be Cher The Shoop Shoop song!

4:51 PM  
Blogger Katy said...

Crazy in Love, definitely

5:09 PM

I'd chose "That's not my name" by the Ting Tings.

I had the opportunity to watch the kids play Just Dance 2 at a neighbors house and they loved it! Its on their list for Santa.

6:44 PM  
Blogger Brittany said...

SOS by Rhiana!

6:59 PM  
Blogger Krystan said...

Obviously, I'd go with "Body Movin'". The Fatboy Slim remix version is sort of our family song on road trips to CT. This is already on my wish list, but I don't think anyone will buy it for me!!

9:02 PM  
Blogger Amelia Sprout said...

Totally That's Not My Name. Love that song. Also, loved watching you guys dance, totally wish I could have tried it out then.

I definitely can't dance but the kids and I would have fun trying. I think we could bust out a Hammer time, maybe.

Wake Me Up Before You Go Go! Great 80s song :)

It's a toss up between It's Raining Men and The Shoop Shoop Song (It's In His Kiss), but I'm going to vote for Cher - The Shoop Shoop Song. Mikayla and Hailey are voting for Avril Lavigne – Girlfriend. We are 'suppose' to be doing school and they are now listening to this song... LOL! :)

10:27 AM  
Blogger Joyful Noise said...

Walk like an Egyptian or Wake me up before you go would be my first choice...but there are lots of great songs! Thanks for the chance to win!

I am dying to try Just Dance 2 with my family! Any 80's song will do, but and partial to Madonna's Celebrate or Vogue!

2:06 PM  
Blogger Snow said...

That's Not My Name is the song I wanna hear first!

Gotta win this for my kids..:)

I think that I would get shaking to some Pussy Cat Dolls. The Outkast song "Hey Ya" always gets me on my feet too. Thanks for the chance to win

I'd have to pick "Hey Ya" but only because there's video evidence out there of me and a few other local bloggers dancing to it at our own just dance party.

11:57 AM  
Blogger Jackie said...

So many choices.... Pussycat Dolls, When I Grow Up!

2:00 PM

I would totally go for Walk Like and Egyptian by the Bangles! My kids had a blast with that song when our friend brought the game over to play!

My daughter and I ROCK Justin Timberlake's Summer Love. Okay, she rocks and I look like I have a really bad muscle cramp.

Blogger Life As I Know It said...

If I don't win this, I have to go buy it...my kids just discovered The Ting Ting's and I hear A LOT of That's Not My Name around here.
They call my Jane...that's not my name.
Brilliant lyrics, no?

12:28 PM  
Blogger Whirlwind said...

So apparently my comment never posted the other day :(

Monster Mash would probably be the first song chosen in my house.

Our friends have this and the GIRLS LOVE playing it.

Walk Like an Egyptian - the dancing was so awful in the original video, I wouldn't feel as bad looking like a dork. LOL
