This Awesome Parody of Rihanna's "Work" Captures Exactly How We Feel
MyLifeSuckers' Deva Dalporto schools us on the awesomeness of mom jobs like doing laundry and scrubbing the toilet in her latest video. Work, indeed.
If you ever wondered what life would be like for Rihanna if she popped out a few kids and moved to the suburbs, check out the latest video from one of our favorite YouTubers, Deva Dalporto of MyLifeSuckers.
OK, so it probably wouldn't really be that way for her. Still... in a parody of Rihanna's "Work" video, Dalporto gives us her best RiRi impression while decked out in dark green lipstick, a blunt black bob, and a dress that's way more opaque than that mesh number star singer is sporting in her recording.
That's because instead of hanging out with Drake, Dalporto is hanging out in her kitchen and rolling with a mop, a sink full of dirty dishes, and a bunch of ungrateful toddlers, as she schools us on the awesomeness of mom jobs like doing laundry and scrubbing the toilet.
Sample lyric: "Tracking in dirt dirt dirt dirt dirt. It's all I do housework work work work work."
We feel you, girl!
Dalporto corralled her family and a bunch of her friends to sing backup in the video, by which I mean they sport Elphaba-hued lips while helping her sweep the floor. And while the whole thing is pretty awesome, our hands-down fave part is when she turns to her husband and sings:
"All that I wanted from you was for you to take out the freaking trash. Clean up your messy stash. Get off your lazy....."
You know the rest.
In a blog post about the send up, Dalporto says she chose the song basically because she just loves it. "It's so fun. And funky," she explained. "And is totally about cleaning, right?"
Considering nobody can seem to figure out exactly what Rihanna's lyrics actually mean, we're just gonna go ahead and take her word for it.
