‘Seminary Funk’: LDS Seminary Parody


A group of early-morning seminary teachers for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Peoria, Arizona created a parody video to the music of “Uptown Funk.”

Here is an excerpt of some of the lyrics for “Seminary Funk”:
“Snorin’, droolin’, it ain’t looking too pretty
If you’re showin’ up, better show on time
‘Cause class starts at 5-fiddy

Mom sent you, Hallelujah
Dad sent you, Hallelujah
Your bishop sent you, Hallelujah
Cause Seminary Funk gonna give it to ya
Seminary Funk gonna give it to ya
It’s early morning and we’re at the church, don’t believe me, just watch.”

The video currently has 32,000 views.
