JibJab.com is probably one of the most elaborate websites helping to fuse human heads to animated bodies. The resource became popular due to 2004 presidential election video which featured the candidates singing a parody of “This Land Is Your Land” song. Since then, election has become a favorite topic on JibJab.

The good

The resource offers a vast majority of topics for your funny video: upcoming holidays (now Halloween is trending), birthday or wedding greetings, movie spoofs, sports, dances, Star Wars, and much more. All the templates are nicely designed and thoroughly thought-out.

The bad

It’s paid. To get your ready video, you have to register a premium account which costs $1/month. There are some free templates, but they are very few.

Still, if you got interested, you may start with a free template (they come first in the category and are marked with a red stripe).

Making a funny video with JibJab is fast and easy. Just follow these steps:

1. Choose a template

Go to the category that interests you and filter the items by “video”. Each template has a detailed description and may be previewed. To choose a template, just click “Personalize” on the template preview.

2. Personalize the video

Find a successful photo of you, your friend, or any other person who you would like to feature in the video and upload it. You may also use Facebook photos for this purpose or take iPhone selfie with the best selfie apps. The tool automatically recognizes a head and crops it. All you need is to zoom and rotate it, fine-tune contours, and position the mouth, so that your video character could speak.

3. Put face on the video

When you saved a face, just drag-‘n-drop it onto the video character. If you chose a template that requires several characters, make sure you uploaded all needed faces, or use JibJab. heads collection. Click “Done”.

4. Add a message (optional)

If you’re going to send the resulted video as e-card, consider adding a greeting to your friend.

And if JibJab editor doesn’t match your purposes, check other online services for making e-cadrs and invitations.

5. Share your video

After your video is ready, you may download it to your PC or iPhone, email it to friend (free), send to Facebook (free), or upload to YouTube.

P.S. With a free template, I couldn’t save or directly upload video to YouTube, so I used Camtasia to screen capture the video. ;)
