Mid-Michigan Home Depot employees create video for national competition

Posted: Updated:

Three employees at a Mid-Michigan Home Depot bring a little magic to the store.

The three Mid-Michigan 20 somethings, Jordan Sovis, Micayla Marks and Casey "Chewy" Lambert, are hoping to be a guest in Las Vegas as winners of a nationwide contest to create a video.

In the video they passionately showcase their love of the Owosso Home depot.

"I came to Chewy and Micayla and said 'hey you know we should do a Frozen themed song' and Chewy was like we could just do all Disney," Sovis said.

They surpassed everyone's expectations from the depths of their own imaginations. Hundreds of thousands of people have watched the video on YouTube.

The trio and their small production team had to wait each night for the store to close. Then off the clock they spent dozens of hours working through the night, day after day and take after take.

Every detail down to the color of a single paint swatch was carefully selected and choreographed to create the perfect shot.

"After 20 takes of Jordan dropping paint samples out of his apron, we were able to get something together," Lambert said.

The proud employees believe the hard-work is worth the reward and they know first-hand because they won the competition last year.

"We're going to Vegas and we're gonna work with awesome people and we're gonna meet new people," Marks said.

Those awesome people include producers of the Super Bowl half-time show, and Beyonce's personal vocal coach. These small town folks hit the big time by performing their Macklemore 'thrift shop' parody on an award-show style stage to thousands of the company's store managers.

"Being able to represent our company like that on a national level is phenomenal," Sovis said.

This year whether they win or lose, one thing's for sure. A few stars were born inside the small town store, thanks to what they say is the power of the Home Depot.

"In all actuality for us, this year it's not so much about the win, it's about being able to share it with our community, with our Home Depot family, with our families with our friends," Lambert said.

The winner is usually announced the second week of February.
