Moms Use Recording of Sons Playing Video Games To Create Hilarious Voice-Over

Path 27

Today’s younger generation is certainly different than when we were kids. Games, technology and habits are all completely different than they used to be.

With the ever-evolving technological devices and the newest toys and games always coming out, kids will never quite understand how we found entertainment “back in the day.”

But the best thing for parents to do is try to understand these trends and meet their kids where they are at.

Instead of looking down on these technological differences, parents can actually use them to their advantage, like the mom who treated wi-fi as a reward for doing chores.

One particular mom requested a photo of a clean kitchen, with a picture of a different item in the photo each day to prevent reused photos, in order to earn the Wi-Fi password.

This trend, called “21st-century parenting,” is truly a genius way to take advantage of these trends and treat them as rewards and privileges for young kids.

One raging trend is the video game called “Fortnite.” The premise of the game is to fight off zombie creatures and build fortresses to keep them out.

Whitney Cicero runs the blog The New Stepford, “the Southpark of Mommy blogs.” Her humorous take on motherhood is something that many moms can relate to.

Can you relate to this video?

In a video posted on July 8, 2018, Cicero and her friend Angela Hoover lip-synced to their sons playing the popular video game.

They recorded their sons playing “Fortnite” and then used their voices as background as the two moms acted out the video game session.

The camera acts as the television screen as the two moms pretend to be their children.



Their facial expressions and mannerisms are truly spot-on as they mimic their sons and their “Fortnite” passion.

At one point, Hoover mimics her son yelling at her, saying, “Mom, can you get off the Internet maybe? Mom, this isn’t a joke!”

The camera then shows one of the sons dressed as a mom in the kitchen yelling back that she’s “not on the internet.”

The moms break up different scenes with little videos of them attempting different modern dances that the younger generation raves about.

Their sons had fairly positive reactions to the video. “My son thought it was funny,” Hoover told the “Today” show.

Cicero added, “My son kept saying, ‘do I get some V-bucks out of it? What’s in it for me mom?'”

Can any other parent relate to this? I’m sure many households sound like this one when kids are playing video games.
