Team Magic vs Team Dad – weigh in on the two versions of the hit song, Rude

A little summer time fun – While getting my periodic cleaning at the dentist the other day, my friendly hygienist and I got into a spirited conversation about whether the classic tradition of asking a woman’s father for her hand in marriage is still relevant today.

Our conversation then took a fun swing, as she told me about a music video that has gone viral in response to the hit summer song, Rude, by Magic. It is a sweet account of “the Dad’s side of the story”. Check out “Rude – a Dad’s Response”, by Benji and Jenna Cowart below.

Whose team are you on?!

Team Magic and “marry her anyway”? Or Team Dad and “doing what a dad should do and keep her from a fool”?
