When it comes to the annual Christmas cards, chances are you’ll see lots of staged family photos and long letters detailing accomplishments and life events. But family and friends of the Holdernesses from Raleigh, N.C. got something completely different: an email with the hilarious rap video, “Christmas Jammies.”
The video puts the family–Kim and Penn, with six-year-old daughter Lola and four-year-old son Penn Charles–on display in matching (you guessed it!) Christmas jammies rapping about their accomplishments in 2013, complete with their own hashtag “#XMASJAMMIES.”
Kim said that filming the video took about a half a day, and Penn spent 12 hours in an editing room. But despite the long hours, their kids “had a blast” and couldn’t believe they were able to wear their pajamas outside.
“I think it’s a pretty honest look and a pretty ridiculous look into the craziness of a modern family,” Kim told ABC News.“We’re acting like fools and I’m guessing people like to see other people making fools of themselves.”
In addition to singing about the new family car, how Lola can count to 100 in Chinese, and Penn Charles’ hip-hop lessons, the Holderness family shared some information some might consider TMI. In one verse, Penn points to a stroller and says “there’s room for child number three,” then adds, “but I can’t; I just had a vasectomy.”
While that line may have caught your attention, the Holderness family saved their biggest piece of family news for last. At the end of the video, Kim rapped that Penn is “going to quit his job and come work with his wife.”
