Brilliant ‘Sleep Deprived’ Parody Shows How Exhausting Parenthood Is

Subscribe to TheFW on

Hey, parents of young kids — this one’s for you.

Anyone with little ones at home will appreciate this video — titled “An Ode To Sleep Deprived Parents – O You Terror” — by the Sydney Symphony and Sydney Choirs Orchestra doing a unique take on the classic “O Fortuna.”

From taking mommy’s purse and messing with your phone’s apps to being bewildered that Junior won’t get any shuteye and lamenting about dirty floors, this video captures the essence of the demands of parenthood.

We’re sure parents everywhere will relate to the woes in this song, assuming, of course, they can find a few minutes to watch this. Between running after their kids and trying to sneak in some sleep, watching a video that may put a smile on their faces is probably not too high up on the food chain.
