Magic!’s Rude is quickly becoming one of the most infectious songs of the summer. Everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Lena Dunham have expressed their thoughts on the song. And while the song has a cool reggae beat and an adorable love story, many people are taken aback by the heartless father in the song. Why won’t he just let them get married?
Well, this dad created a video response for Magic! and it’s hilarious. Benji and Jenna Cowart decided to write the father’s side of the story and explain why he’s gottta be so rude. In the video Benji defends his daughter’s honour, and won’t let her settle for a burger flipping scrub who lives in his mother’s basement. This song is the anthem for fathers everywhere. Remember guys, if you want to marry his daughter for the rest of your life, you gotta make more than a burger and fries. He’s just doing what a dad should do.
