Halloween costumes can be an adventure — this one doesn't fit, that one isn't cool enough, that one's uncomfortable. But Kim and Penn Holderness, of Raleigh, North Carolina, famed for their family friendly viral-video parodies, took the adventure in stride with "Kin and Moose," a spoof of Snoop Dogg's 1990s hit "Gin and Juice."
The moose costume enters the picture when the couple's young daughter Lola insists that Dad ditch his preferred costume of shiny gold lamé MC Hammer pants and instead dress like Sven, the reindeer from "Frozen." When no reindeer costume can be found, Penn pulls a Bullwinkle and ends up "rollin' down the street with my kinfolk, dressed like a giant moose."
Nut allergies and a hair in the family's candy also figure into the video.
The Holderness clan's other parodies include "Christmas Jammies" (Will Smith's "Miami") and "Baby Got Class" (Sir Mix-A-Lot's famed "Baby Got Back"). They also wrote a tribute to the TODAY Orange Room's one-year anniversary last month. (Sample lyric: "Nothing rhymes with 'orange,' so this song's really short.")
