Every so often friends send me videos they think should be on my radar.
The latest clip shared on my Facebook page was “The Parent Rap” from Bluefish TV’s parenting series. The video features a mom and dad rapping about their lives — “my PB&Js will set your world on fire, I could make you mac ‘n’ cheese blindfolded on a wire” — after kids.
Although the video was originally uploaded to YouTube in May, it has only recently gone viral.
The Huffington Post wrote a piece about parents rapping about life after baby as a trend online.
A dad known as Sam Deezy released “Daddy Skills,” a video where he raps “extra-early mornings, advanced diaper-changing technique and the ins and outs of playground etiquette.”
Another dad rapped– to the beat of the fetal monitor — in the delivery room.
And a mom’s LMFAO parody, “I’m Pregnant and I Know It,” went viral.
A trend? Meh. Funny? A few. Overrated? Totally.
What do you think of such parent raps?
