IMAGINE A MUSIC VIDEO WITH ALL YOUR VERY FAVOURITE PEOPLE IN IT, LIP-SYNCHING TO YOUR VERY FAVOURITE SONG. ENTER JENKS & CO - AKA DAISY VAN STRAUBENZEE AND KITTY JENKS - WHO HAVE BEEN CREATING EXACTLY THESE SINCE 2010. TRAVELLING TO PARTIES AND WEDDINGS ALL ACROSS THE WORLD, THIS SISTER TEAM HAS PERFECTED THE ART OF THE LIP SYNCH VIDEO. WE CAUGHT UP WITH DAISY AND KITTY AND DISCUSSED FAVOURITE FILMS, STEALING CLOTHES AND THE FUNNIEST THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED ON THE JOB.
WHAT SPARKED THE IDEA FOR YOUR LIP-SYNCHING VIDEOS?
Our mother made us watch a lot of musicals when we were younger and we would pause the films to write down the lyrics so that we could learn them by heart. The summer holiday that Daisy got her first laptop with iMovie on it was spent getting family and friends to mime the lines of the song Ice Ice Baby. Our father made us a website and it started from there.
WHAT’S THE FUNNIEST THING THAT HAS HAPPENED WHILE YOU’VE BEEN FILMING?
We've seen a huge wedding cake fall over, a vicar fainting just before the vows and being seated either side of the host we didn't know before!
DO YOU HAVE ANY FILM RECOMMENDATIONS THAT WE SHOULD BE ADDING TO OUR LIST?
Father of the Bride is our all time favourite - we get to work with a lot of Franck types!
HOW DO YOUR SENSE OF FASHION STYLES DIFFER?
Daisy is more focused on dressing her baby Clover now who's been wearing a lot of party dresses during lockdown! Kitty tries to steal Daisys dresses when she's not looking.
BEST AND WORST THING ABOUT WORKING AS SISTERS?
The best is we share a lot of fun memories together and always have a friend on the job. The worst is when there is a disagreement there is no holding back!
IF YOU WERE TO MAKE AN EPONINE LIP-SYNCHING VIDEO, WHICH SONG WOULD YOU CHOOSE FOR IT AND WHY?
Pretty Woman or Walking on Sunshine. Your colourful dresses make us think of sunny days, and are things that you will always feel like the prettiest woman in!
