This Hilarious Thanksgiving Mash-up Is Just What You Need Right Now
Who could forget the Holdernesses, the family behind the viral video hit "XMas Jammies?" Now the family-of-four is back, this time with a parody about Thanksgiving. The mash-up includes parodies of hit songs like "Whip/Nae Nae" and "Hello."
The video opens with mom Kim looking overwhelmed and exhausted at a loud family dinner table. Then she breaks out her wine and sings a line moms everywhere will cheer for, "Watch me sip my chardonnay-nay!"
We catch up with dad Penn in a parody of Adele's "Hello." But this time, it's "Jell-o." And the theme is something all parents can relate to: how kids refuse to eat the Thanksgiving dinner we slave over all day, and they only want bread, or noodles, or Jell-o. Kids Lola and Penn Charles get in on the act here, too, clearly loving the opportunity to take part in another holiday parody video.
"Hotline Bling" is up next, and now Penn is caught listening to his in-laws go on and on before the holiday meal, and waiting for the "oven ding." Been there!
At the end, viewers are treated to an extended, hilarious, extended spoof of "Whip/Nae Nae." Ever done the "turkey leg?" You will now.
I always love catching up with this fun family. They serve as a much-needed reminder this time of year that given the tremendous stresses of the holidays, if you can't find the humor in family-life, you are doomed!
