    Last weekend, a woman named “Sweet Brown” was interviewed about her experience of escaping from a fire in her apartment.

    The delivery of her comments put a humorous spin on a serious story and resulted in the 40 second video going viral shortly after.

    Her reaction: “Are you serious? Wow, that’s amazing. You think I could be a superstar?”

    This is the original interview but it’s this specific remix (and there have been many) that you need to watch – expertly put together by The Parody Factory.

    Going forward I plan to play this to my wife whenever she wants me to take her to the ballet…ain’t nobody got time for that.

    (Oh and the funniest part of the video might just be her son pacing back & forth shaking his head in the background)
