With all the bad news usually posted on Riptide, this is a nice change of pace. Above is a video local art/graphic design/animation duo Friends With You, consisting of Sam Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III, made for Nick Jr., a cable channel popular with the pre-school set. But you don't have to be 4 to enjoy the whimsical nature of the promo. Titled "Move to the Music," the animation is used to introduce the channel block of the music video programming--sort of like MTV, but with far less Real World/Road Rules challenges and Speidi. Enjoy!
