Welcome to another edition of The Sunday Funnies, a weekly feature devoted solely to the lighter side of life. This week’s edition spotlights a new YouTube video called “Snow Day: The Musical,” which was posted on Feb. 14 and already has more than 500,000 views. The entertaining viral hit, created by Penn and Kim Holderness, depicts the humorous and realistic side of having kids home from school during a snow day. Parents in Atlanta can especially relate to the Internet sensation because of our rare back-to-back snowstorms that closed schools for days on end.
According to WUNC, the creators of “Snow Day: The Musical” were also the brains behind another YouTube sensation called “Xmas Jammies,” which has been viewed close to 14 million times. Boston.com posted on Feb. 14 that the Holderness family produces cleaver videos to get the word out about their marketing company. It looks like the family from Raleigh, N.C. has struck gold again with “Snow Day: The Musical.”
The video is a huge hit with parents because it addresses the very real hassles of snow days like messy houses, overactive children, bread and milk shortages, not enough time to get work done, and the dreaded robo-calls. Kudos to “Snow Day: The Musical” for painting an entertaining picture of very real situations.
Best wishes for a relaxing, peaceful and snow-free Sunday. For a good chuckle, be sure to watch the video above.
