When French Canadian hooping sensation Jade Dussault told us that she needed 10 custom-sized LED hoops, we were interested in seeing what she planned on doing with them. Jade just released a video of her hoops in action and it is fantastic! Watch the video below and let us know what you think in the comments!

This was a blast to help create. Bill (my bro in-law) created the entire set, developed the concept from start to finish and this video is part of a series that connects one music video to the next.

Sometimes the best moments are the unplanned ones. And so it was on March 11, 2012, on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Washington Square Park, NYC.
I headed to the park with my guitar and my two collapsible Troo Hoops. After some music, I dropped my belongings in front of the Washington Square Arch, put together my new 36″ dance hoop, and hooped it up for a minute. Then I took out my 39″ sport hoop for Brian Dubé, Troo Hoops founder and Washington Square habitué, to use:

After some mutual spinning and trick sharing, Brian got the idea to try hooping with two of us in the hoop at one time. When that failed, he took both hoops and created a giant hoop, 76 inches in diameter. After some adjusting, it was ready:
I tested out this new creation. Although a tiny bit unstable, it definitely worked!
After Brian took his turn…
…the audience participation started.
At one point, which you can hear in the following video, one of the guys asked, “What are we doing?” to which Brian replied, “We don’t know!” Such was the spirit of the afternoon.
So when you combine friends, a nice park day, photographers, and a few collapsible Troo Hoops, this is basically what you get:
Enjoy the beautiful weather this week if you are in New York City, and wherever you are, send us pictures and videos of your wackiest hoop escapades!
