Many families choose to send their loved ones holiday newsletters letting them know what they’ve been up to in the past year – but not the Holdernesses of Raleigh, N.C. Instead, they chose to bring their newsletter to the 21st century – striped jammies and all!
In the video, local TV news anchors Penn and Kim Holderness – along with their two children – Lola and Penn Charles, rap their family’s tale to the music of Will Smith’s “Miami” while wearing matching red-and-green striped pajamas.
Highlights from the #XMASJAMMIES video include the couple one-upping each other over their respective cameos in “Iron Man 3,” Penn Charles’ adorable dancing as an Indian in a school play, and Penn announcing that he underwent a vasectomy earlier in the year as his kids throw bags of peas on his lap. We can only hope Lola and Penn Charles will have a sense of humor about the video when they grow up!
The Holdernesses didn’t go around town embarrassing themselves just for kicks and giggles, however. The video is actually being used as an ad for the couple’s new video production company, Greenroom Communications. According to the company’s Twitter feed, the response to the video has been so great that the site crashed several times in response.
