Here are two of the better pranks by the video industry for April Fools Day.

SteadiKid commercial spot from Scott McDermott on Vimeo.

Still using a traditional baby carrier with too much shake and wobble?

You need the SteadiKid.

The only baby carrier that uses technology developed for the movies.

I was carrying my one year old son in a Baby Bjorn style carrier a while back and kept noticing how his head was bobbling back and forth as I walked and wondered if he noticed or if it was annoying to him.

Then I thought “Wouldn’t it be great if there was a steadicam type solution so he would just float along?”.

So I ended up shooting what the commercial for such a thing might be, if it did exist. Just for fun.
