That means you’re going to have to step up to the eyeSocial Challenge. Here’s the crux of the challenge lifted from Anne’s page:

Then, he helped me put together the FamZoo video response to the eyeSocial Challenge. Here it is (be sure to watch “past” the end for a little chuckle with the bonus outtakes):
