This was a phone call Maryland school kids didn’t want to miss.
A school district belted out a parodied version of Adele’s ‘Hello’ to announce a snow day.
Maybe cabin fever has started setting in for officials at Anne Arundel County Public Schools, who are still trying to dig out after the massive snowstorm hit much of the east coast on Friday and Saturday.
Officials let their inner songstress out while recording the robotic call that was sent to thousands of parents and students announcing school closures for Wednesday.
School spokesman Bob Mosier and his daughter Emilie, 17, belted out the parody.
The lyrics captured much of the frustration parents were probably feeling with their snowed-in kids.
“Hello, it’s me,” Mosier sang. “And, I’ve got news for you. We will close schools for another day. Parents will cry, ‘Boohoo.'”
Emilie chimed in about how the snow was affecting people’s social life.
“I am loving this semester break, but my friends I can’t see,” she sang. “This is dreadful socially.”
The recording won’t win a school district Grammy, but it has become quite a hit online.
A similar voicemail was posted to Facebook last week, when a superintendent parodied Bruno Mars’ ‘Uptown Funk’ to announce a snow day at a Harrisburg school.
“Our superintendent outdid himself this time,” said Mike Leckron, whose video has been viewed nearly 4 million times. “He’s hilarious!”
