Friends Surprise Artist With Sock Puppet Happy Birthday

An artist who creates quirky sock puppets on the side was surprised by friends and family with a zoom call using sock puppets to sing him Happy Birthday. The birthday was Cody’s second in isolation because of the coronavirus, and so his sister, Jillian, 33, wanted to do something different to surprise him. And the plan worked as Cody, 27, had a look of sheer amazement as his friends - and their sock puppets - started to appear on his screen on April 10. Jillian said she came up with the idea for using sock puppets a couple of months before her brother’s big day. Cody, who lives just outside Chicago, is an artist and has dabbled in making sock puppets from time to time, Jillian said. His sister then texted some of her brother’s high school friends, who were more than happy to oblige. In total, 12 sock puppets greeted Cody, who, after the initial shock, watched on with his head in his hands in amazement. Jillian said she was extremely impressed, as there was no dress rehearsal, and Cody’s friends are dotted across the United States and one in Scotland.
