Los Angeles pastor Patrick McGillicuddy and his wife Whitney, created a cute YouTube video to announce to family and friends that they were expecting a baby in February 2015.
They were shocked when the video went viral. Their video played off Cokes’ personalized #shareacoke ad campaign that has people’s voices change as they drink coke from containers with different names on them.
In their video, which now sits at 3.9 million views, the couple’s voices change as they drink from cans with different names imprinted on them. Their voices return to normal when they drink from the last two cans labelled ‘Mom’ and ‘Dad.’ This is followed immediately with an ultrasound image of their baby and the pregnancy announcement.
Numerous website around the world have played the video and it was even featured on Good Morning America. In an article published on Christianity Today, Pat who is a children’s pastor The Church at Rocky Creek said:
“The beauty of the video is that we didn’t intend for this to happen.”
