Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestmail

August marks every parent’s relief and every child’s dread — the beginning of another school year.

The Holderness family — who writes parody music videos where they change the lyrics to relatable family life experiences — rewrote the lyrics to 50 Cent’s “In Da Club” and changed it to “In the Tub,” a back-to-school parody.

“We had a little too much fun with this. We’ll miss you, kiddos,” the family wrote on YouTube. “Thank you to our teachers, school staff, bus drivers, and everyone else who makes a school year great.”

This isn’t the first time the family, which is made up of father Penn, mother Kim, daughter Lola (10), and son Penn Charles (7), has created a back-to-school parody. The first school-centric video the family wrote — “Baby Got Class” as a parody for “Baby Got Back” — garnered more than 8 million views. However, the family got its start when its “#Xmas Jammies” music video went viral in 2013 and has since reached more than 17 million views.

The back-to-school parody is just in time for Utah County students to return to the classroom. Provo School District began on Tuesday, Aug. 15. Both Alpine and Nebo school districts will return to school on Tuesday, Aug. 22.
