The Holdeness Family Wants to Make Thanksgiving Great Again

And that means keeping the political talk at bay.

Stressed about election talk taking over your Thanksgiving table? Not to worry—the Holderness fam is back with a new video set to the tune of the hit Flo Rida song "My House" that offers tips to get you through the meal without talking politics.

Sing it, Penn!

"Thanksgiving day it is gonna come up. Yeah you know they gonna bring up Hills and Trump. Cousin Bill's gonna say he voted red. And our neighbor is going after his head. Because everyone's mad. And it's gonna get bad. So how we gonna fix that?"

By planting yourself on the couch, turning on the game, and drinking away your anger with a bottle or 10 of your best Nay Nay, duh!


"Welcome to my couch. Listen to Troy Aikman, talk about formation—not about our nation."


Solid advice. #WereWithPenn

And if football and getting sloshed isn't your thang, Penn and his daughter have a whole bunch of other safe, non-partisan, Holderness-approved convo starters that are sure to keep a fist fight from breaking out during the festivities.


Things like: Why did Brangelina really break up? What do you think about Pluto not being a planet? How 'bout that lack of a separate headphone jack on the new iPhone 7? You get the idea.

The parody then wraps up on a sweet note, with a mash-up of fan videos sent in from around the world to inspire peace and love. "If dogs and cats can get along," Penn begins in a voice over. "If dogs and bunnies can get along... If Vader and Obi-Wan can get along... Maybe we can all get along."

Penn 2020!

It should be noted, however, that Flo Rida's original version of My House contains samples from "Impeach the President" by The Honey Drippers, so maybe Penn has been trying to subliminally get his message across all along.

Joke's on you, Cousin Bill!
