As winter weather swept across much of the eastern United States, a teacher’s wish in a parody of Adele’s “Hello” video has been granted.
Mary Morris, a third grade teacher at Rush Strong School in Strawberry Plains, Tenn., posted online earlier this month a cell phone video of herself pleading for a snow day to the tune of Grammy Award winning artist Adele’s recent “Hello” hit song.
“Snow, it’s me,” Morris sings in the parody. “We need a snow day tomorrow or at least a good delay. If it’s got to be so cold, the least that it could do is snow.”
Her friends at InnerDigital, a Jefferson City based digital marketing company, thought it was perfect for a music video parody of Adele’s “Hello” video and recreated some of the most iconic scenes from the original version. The video has since gone viral with more than 800,000 views.
“As you will discover, she is not only a teacher but a very talented singer known for her creative parodies related to everyday classroom experiences,” said representatives of InnerDigital.
Schools in most east Tennessee counties were closed Thursday and Friday due to snow. While kids may have been out sledding and enjoying Tennessee’s first significant snow of the season, we can only imagine that Morris spent the snow days in bed watching Netflix as she longed to do.
