I’m backing up, because my daddy taught me good

I can’t get this out of my head: “I’m backing up, backing up, backing up, cause my daddy taught me good”. The Gregory Brothers over at YouTube have outdone themselves big time. They used a KMBC news bit and put it to music…the final result is a catchy, entertaining bit of work. Here, check it out:
