Roundup: Viral Video Parody Features School Bus, Ice Bucket Challenge & More!

The Holderness family, who burst into the Internet scene last year when their “Christmas Jammies” video posted to YouTube video went viral, has done it once again.

This time, they did a back-to-school themed parody of Sir-Mix-A-Lot’s 1990s hit “Baby Got Back” titled “Baby Got Class,” featuring a yellow school bus. The song parody starts off saying, “I like big buses and I cannot lie.”

Speaking of viral, one of the latest internet sensations is the “ice bucket challenge.” Those who accept the challenge have 24 hours to accept it, which involves having a bucked of ice water dumped over their heads and donating $10 to the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Association. Those who reject it have to donate $100. Participants then post a video of the challenge and nominate three others to do the same.

An Ohio man was arrested yesterday and accused of inducing panic after attempting to get into a school bus that was boarding students. The 67-year-old man, who was with his granddaughter, claimed he was trying to show her the school bus. When the driver told him he could not be there, the man screamed that he was a taxpayer, and attempted to board another bus, one that was empty. When the transportation director, who was not armed, was called to the scene, the man yelled, “Don’t shoot! This is not Missouri!” referring to the recent events in Ferguson, Missouri.

 A live demonstration with law enforcement at STN EXPO advised bus drivers on what to do to maintain safety in the event of an attempted trespassing.
