Introducing Sir Mix-a-Lot’s little-known back-to-school jam

I like big buses; I cannot lie.

Less than a year after exploding on YouTube with “Christmas Jammies,” the Holderness family has returned with their latest viral sensation, “Baby Got Class.”

Set to Sir Mix-a-Lot’s very educational classic hit “Baby Got Back,” the video celebrates the end of summer and the return to school for the young Holderness children. Featured are short narratives about summer vacation and confusion over buying back-to-school supplies. And, as with “Christmas Jammies,” “Baby Got Class” is hilariously lame as only a G-rated suburban parody can be.

In keeping with the “Christmas Jammies” tradition, Penn Holderness makes sure to work family updates into the lyrics:

“Summertime’s nice
Kayaks and water slides
Penn Charles finally learned to swim
And Lola read to him.”

We can’t wait to see the Holderness family updates once their kids are old enough to go to senior prom.
