Parents around the world should embrace because we may have seen the best “Shape of You” parody yet. While everyone loves Ed Sheeran’s hit it’s been rife with parodies since the day it was released. However, one parody that was released only yesterday has already eclipsed the 10 million view mark on Facebook. It was made by none other than Paul McCartney’s second cousin Sophie McCartney.
She changed Sheeran’s lyrics to reflect how mom life has wreaked havoc on her body and sanity in the video posted on Facebook “I can’t believe it’s at nearly 10M views on Facebook in just 24 hours,” McCartney said in an email. In the video, McCartney of North West, England, shows scenes from her day with son Jack and daughter Evelyn – feeding, changing diapers and trying to fit into her jeans. She flips the lyrics and gets real in the chorus:
“I gag at the smell of poo, at the sight of vomit, too. And even though my heart loves you, I’m annoyed by the things you do. Last night you were in my room and now my bedsheets smell like poo. Every day discovering something brand new. What have you done to my body?”
