It’s hard to make a splash when it comes to family vacation videos. They’re all the same: smiling faces, sunglasses, outdoor sports, and gentle bickering.

So YouTube user Travis Henning decided to spice up his family’s vacation footage by editing it into a music video for Clyde Carson’s rap song “Slow Down.” Chill rap track plus chill vacation video equals a way more interesting home movie than anyone was expecting.

“Stepmom was not happy,” Henning wrote on Reddit.

Worth it, though.
