newfoundland snow parody video

Someone made a hilarious Newfoundland parody of a hit Queen song

You have to hand it to them — Newfoundland is handling this snowstorm like a boss. Locals are getting inventive with how they store their beer, and one man in St. John's has taken things to the next level by creating a hilarious parody video set to Queen's I Want to Break Free.

In the video, YouTuber Cullam Bruce-Lockhart sings the famous song into a shovel, which doubles as a microphone.

The footage is interspersed with hilarious clips of Newfoundland's snowstorm, including frozen fish that have blown into people's yards and locals attempting to dig out of their houses.

The parody video — which was posted yesterday — has already received over 30k views and more than 200 likes.  

Needless to say, Canadians have been loving it.

One Newfoundland woman was feeling patriotic.

And another person was just really feeling the music.

Newfoundland is in chaos this morning as crowds rush to the newly opened supermarkets, so hopefully the parody video will bring some cheer as the province works to recover from snowmaggedon.
