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?

    What is your favorite song? I don't know what mine is - probably "Silent Night" and "Over the Rainbow."

      Oh, I like all the songs in Tangled! They are beautiful, and when Flynn and rapunzel was singing together, the harmony was AMAZING

          In every Disney Princess movie, the princess and prince sing together. : ) Every year they make a new Disney princess, and they also make each Disney princess more and more independent. I wonder who next year's Disney princess will be?
