Cameo – When You Don’t Know What to Gift a Person

Cameo, the video platform that enables fans to purchase 30-second personalized video messages from their favorite influencers, athletes, and more.

This past Valentine’s Day my boyfriend surprised me with a personalized video message from one of my favorite singers through Cameo, a service that allows users to book personalized video shoutouts from actors, musicians, athletes, and more.

At first view I was completely taken-a-back; shying away from watching the wonderful and thoughtful video gifted to me. It wasn’t until the next day when I watched the video alone that I truly appreciated and grasped the sentiment of how cool this service really was.

From then on out I was completely obsessed and preoccupied with finding other Cameos (actors, musicians, athletes, etc) to which I could gift to family and friends.

After about a week of browsing the various Cameos, I came across the perfect one in lieu of my brother’s birthday. Given that my brother loves the Minnesota Vikings, purchasing a birthday video shoutout from a Vikings player proved to be the perfect birthday present.

For just $20 CJ Ham, a fullback for the Minnesota Vikings, delivered exactly the details I outlined in the Cameo request. And just 3 days later the Cameo was delivered! The end result? A fantastic video wishing my brother a happy birthday as well as expressing his commitment to a better 2020 season for the Vikings.

And though while my brother’s birthday isn’t for a couple of weeks, I’m positive he’ll get a kick out of it!
