One of Hollywood’s funniest husband and wife duos have outdone themselves on their latest contribution to the Internet … the vacation music video.
If this isn’t a thing, it will be now and it’s all thanks to Michigan-born celebrities Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard.
Bell tweeted the video on YouTube and the setup read, “Since nobody really wants to see the album of your vacation photos… Introducing: the #VacationMusicVideo africa”.
The “Frozen” and “Veronica Mars” actress appears doing shoulder shimmies to the Toto tune “Africa” while the highlight has to be Shepard in the tub lib syncing the lyrics.
The vacation was in 2012 and according to SFGate Shepard said they were fined for their antics. “We weren’t paying attention and then the Serengeti police showed up and they fined us $50 for dancing at the Serengeti.”
The video’s description adds some context. “This was our last trip before having kids. Our sole objective was to rage hard and honor Toto properly. Hope you enjoy :)”
Indeed. I assume Toto would be proud.
Here’s a meaningless local detail. Bell was born and raised in Huntington Woods, Mich. and Shepard is from Milford which are both in the Metro Detroit area.
