It’s Okay If Viral Mom Parody Videos Make Your Skin Crawl

By  | 

pregnant-parody-videoOkay, I’m definitely projecting here when I say that it’s okay if viral mom videos make your skin crawl. It’s okay, right? I’m still a good mom and have a great sense of humor if the site of a bunch of pregnant women rapping doesn’t crack me up – right? Right?

I’m starting to sound like a broken record, because all of these videos shake me to my very core. The one I’m talking about today is a parody of the Iggy Azalea song “Fancy.” You may be familiar with it:

I’m so fancy

You already know
I’m in the fast lane
From L.A. to Tokyo

I’m so fancy
Can’t you taste this gold?
Remember my name

‘Bout to blow

Actually, you’re definitely familiar with it if you listen to any popular music stations in your car. It’s on constantly. Well, the women responsible for some other “fun” parody videos, like the one where the mom explains why her baby is making her too distracted to have any friends decided that what the world needed was more women rapping about pregnancy and mom stuff. I thought something was missing from my life – I just couldn’t put my finger on it. Just kidding! If I never see another one of these parody videos it will be too soon. This one is called “I’m So Pregnant.” Get it? I’m so fancy. I’m so pregnant… oh, never mind. Here it is.

It has 3,258,203 views last time I checked. Oh my God. People love this shit. What is wrong with me?

I’m so pregnant

You already know

I’m in the last month

I can’t even see my toes

I’m so pregnant

Can’t fit any clothes

Don’t ask me the name

I don’t know

Why don’t I take any joy from this? It’s not just that I don’t take joy, it’s that it’s actually like nails on a chalkboard. Mom parody videos are my kryptonite. The first step is acceptance.

My name is Maria and I hate mom parody videos.
