You Have to See This Mom-Parody of 'Despacito' About Life With Slow-Moving Kids
The hit song gets the mom treatment as these desperate parents try to get their kids out the door on time. Watch the video here.
You may not know the lyrics, but Luis Fonzi and Daddy Yankee's summer hit "Despacito" featuring Justin Bieber is officially the most-streamed song in history. And since the name literally translates to "slowly," it was only a matter of time before some genius parents decided to co-opt the catchy tune—because after all, who among us can't relate to the struggle of trying to get the kids up and dressed and out of the house on time?
Enter the two women behind the hilarious YouTube parenting channel Laughing Moms, with "Despacito: A Parody About Kids Who Move Slowly #allkids."
"Despacito was the perfect song to parody for what we think is a universal problem for parents! Slow-moving children!" the moms explained in the video's caption. "Sometimes, you just gotta pray for patience!"
So true! And their lyrics, of course, are totally on point: "Come on let's go or we'll be late again. How'd you lose your shoes? You were just wearin' them."
I can so relate. This happens in my house all the time. So take it to the bridge, sister!

"I just want to pull my hair out when you move so slowly. Can I get a holy moly? Cause I'm about to lose controlly. I need you to hurry, 'cause I'm about to go insane. You think it's such a funny game. Don't make me use your middle name..."
Fantástico! And I'm totally using "controlly" from now on.
