While we absolutely love parody songs that not only stay true to a song’s original sound and tempo, this one has projected out above all to become possibly one of the greatest parody songs we have ever heard. Christian comedian Tim Hawkins isn’t one to shy from a good tune, as he incorporates music and instruments into his comedy routines. This man sure has one massive funny bone, as he spun one of country superstar Carrie Underwood‘s biggest hits, “Jesus Take The Wheel”, into a side-splitting parody linked to fishing with a best buddy!
Titled “Cletus Take The Reel”, Hawkins and his pal sport the typical redneck attire as they are seen entering the scene in a high-speed quad ride! The music video cuts into a variety of dramatic frames of Hawkins narrating the faithful day that his buddy Cletus saved a massive bass from leaving his grips!
Hawkins begins to remember the event as he sings, “I was fishing last Friday on a lake in Mississippi in the humid summer heat on a boat with my best friend Cletus who was sleeping in the back seat,” perfectly matching Underwood’s original tune. He explains the sudden change in events when, while snagging a monster bass, he pulled a muscle in his upper thigh and was forced to rely on Cletus for backup.
He sang, “Cletus take the reel! Take it from my hands ‘cuz I can’t do this on my own! I’m letting go, and I need your help fast! And if you don’t my fish is gone. Cletus take the reel!”
The dramatic video continues to elicit endless laughs from both fans of the sport and of Underwood’s music! Listen to the song below and prepare to roll on the floor with laughter!
