Remember that viral holiday hit, #Xmas Jammies? Well, the family behind the musical Christmas card is back—and they’re rapping to the tune of “Baby Got Back.” On Saturday, Us Weekly posted the Holderness family’s newest video, a back to school parody set to the 1992 Sir Mix-A-Lot tune with the title “Baby Got Class.”
Former TV news anchor Penn Holderness and his wife Kim Dean are the masterminds behind the new video, which shows the North Carolina family getting ready for a new school year with their two young kids, Lola and Penn Charles. From boarding the big bus to shopping for school supplies to making healthy lunches, it’s all there, and the snooty neighbor from the last video (actually a Holderness family friend) kicks off the new clip with a hilarious spiel that channels “Baby Got Back’s” opener.
The Holderness family’s Christmas video, “Xmas Jammies” had the clan decked out in matching striped pajamas as they recapped their busy year. The video racked up a whopping 14 million views on YouTube last winter, while the new video has already logged more nearly 3 million hits. They've also marked a few other occasions, like Father's Day and The Oscars.
When the family’s holiday video went viral last December, Kim Dean told ABC News the video took a half a day to shoot and 12 hours of editing by her husband. “I think it’s a pretty honest look and a pretty ridiculous look into the craziness of a modern family,” she said of the video’s appeal. “We’re acting like fools and I’m guessing people like to see other people making fools of themselves. We don’t take ourselves too seriously.”
On a slightly serious note, the family has dedicated their latest parody to “the amazing teachers who take care of our kids all year and don’t make enough money.”
