My dad did a lot of things to embarrass me when I was a kid. He told stupid jokes (over and over again), made me get a walkie-talkie instead of a cool Nokia cell phone, and even bought 50 Cent’s “Get Rich or Die Tryin'” CD to jam out to on his way to work. But at least he never parodied it.
This Framingham, Mass. father, on the other hand, had no shame in parodying Taylor Swift’s latest hit single, “22.” The original song is about what it’s like to be a 22-year-old living in this crazy world. It really speaks to 12-year-olds, if you know what I mean.
David Remis, or DwiftyDSwizzle as he goes by on YouTube, flips Swift’s song on its head, singing instead about what it’s like to be a 42-year-old dad living in the ‘burbs, and the perils of wearing chinos, driving mini vans, and dealing with back aches. It really speaks to no one, if you know what I mean.
