With Frozen's catchy song 'Let it go' winning the Oscar last night, there are bound to be numerous more parodies added to the hundreds of thousands that already exist on YouTube. However, very few will be more fun or relevant (given the recent winter storms) than the one performed on Friday, February 21st, by Bob Herzog on Cincinnati, Ohio's WKRC.

Dubbed 'Just Don't Go', the traffic reporter sung his dramatic parody against a backdrop of cars skidding on ice and himself, trudging and slipping on the snow. With over 1.7 million views and counting, it will be probably go down as the most watched traffic update in history!

This of course is not the first time the veteran reporter has performed a parody for the station's Dance Party Friday segments. His past covers include Lorde's 'Royals' that begins with 'I've never seen a day without a crash' and Elton John's 'Rocket Man' that he transformed to 'Traffic Man'. Who knew watching a traffic report could be so much fun?

                      THERE IS A AMAZING DOCTOR WHO VERSION ON YOUTUBE. I like the part of it when it goes "And here I stand, for Gallifreyyyyy! Let my life rage on, the change never bothered me anyway."
