‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ Just Went from Kinda Creepy to Super Sweet
Holidays are a great time of year to get all snuggly with your honey (even/especially if your honey has four legs and a tail). Cause baby, when it’s cold outside, you’re gonna need some hot drinks and fuzzy socks — and a great set of holiday tunes. We know you really can’t stay and you’ve got to go away, but hear us out because there’s one holiday song in particular that we think you’ll adore.
“Baby It’s Cold Outside” was written in 1944 by Frank Loesser. It’s a pretty catchy tune about a man trying to convince a woman to stay with him for the night because — you guessed it — it’s cold outside. What many people don’t usually think about though is how the song puts a hell of a lot of emphasis on the man’s reasons for wanting the woman to stay, and pretty much no emphasis on the woman’s right to say no. So one couple took it upon themselves to rework the song and turn it into something that is still a beautiful holiday song but also underlines the importance of consent, and gives us some chuckles along the way: “Say, what’s in this drink?” “Pomegranate La Croix.” That’s a lot more reassuring than the original. Check out the adorable rendition below!
What do you think of their song? What other songs do you think sound kind of creepy? Tell us @britandco!
