Tired Dad Sings An Absolutely Hilarious Parody Of "Shut Up And Dance With Me"
Tired parents of the world, unite! Your anthem is finally here. Surely, every parent can relate to the following scenario: it's Sunday night and you've put the kids to bed around 8 p.m. or so. Everything should be nice and quiet and you're all ready to start your binge watching of Netflix (House of Cards for the win) when you notice the pitter-patter of feet that are supposed to be tucked in. Then, out of nowhere, you hear it - "Mommmm/Daaaad I'm thirsty!"
Since the dawn of time, kids have waged psychological wars on their parents that I like to call "The Battle of Bedtime," a.k.a. a never-ending barrage of excuses as to why they can't go to bed just yet. I did it to my parents and I'm sure when I have kids, they'll do it to me.
Reed Verdesoto, a father of three from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is intimately familiar with the struggle. He recently uploaded this video to YouTube, featuring him singing a parody version of Walk the Moon's hit song "Shut Up and Dance" - which he changed to "Shut Up and Go to Sleep." It's everything a good parody should be: catchy, hilarious and, most importantly, incredibly relatable by parents everywhere.
