The Texting Yoga Pants are a group of local millennial moms that do life together. They also have a viral video out right now called I Wanna Go To Chick-Fil-A You can see our post here.


What inspired the video?
I have been going to Chick-Fil-A with my son Hudson since he was 9 months old, he’s four now. I always felt like I could take a deep breath when I walked in because I knew every mom there was there for the same reason…we needed a little break. I felt like this song would support and encourage all of the chick-fil-a mommas out there and let them know they are doing a GREAT job! And that we are all in this together.


How long did it take to come up with the Parody concept?
It took about a 20 minute ride home from Chick-fil-a one day last December to write the song. I did ask my husband to look over it about an hour before I went to record and he threw in a couple of the BEST lines in the song (he is insanely talented…makes me sick…lol:) I have always directed and produced videos in my head. The video concept for this came almost as quickly as the lyrics. Of course this wouldn’t be anything without the original writers Meghan Trainor and Kevin Kadish! They are ridiculous.


What city and state did you guys shoot the video from.
We shot the video in Franklin, TN at the south Franklin CF.


What kind of response are you getting from friends, family, and strangers?
The response from friends, family and strangers is hands down the BEST part about this. They are just as excited as WE are! I keep getting texts from my family and my best friends (we are in a constant group text) updating me on how many views we have. Moms I have never met are letting me know that I hit the nail on the head with the lyrics and that I wrote their life..theee BEST! I have always wanted to put lyrics to people’s real life, for it to be humorous is icing on the cake


Are you planning on making more videos?
We would really like to. We’re thinking super short humorous mom skits and more parodies
