Just how many ways can one guy use the video capabilities of his mobile devices to entertain us with?

You can grab the fireplace animation as part of Mark’s DigitalDudz Christmas iOS app. Be sure to keep an eye out on Mark’s youtube channel in the coming days for a video showing how to make your own ugly fireplace sweater.
