Parents Are Totally Feeling This Mom's Rant About School Theme Days

“The goal is to drive moms crazy with different outfits every single day."

A mom in Texas has made a viral video telling the world how she really feels about school theme days.

In a video from Oct. 25, blogger and public speaker Melissa Radke explained that she is a supporter of public schools. The themed days they have in which they encourage students to wear specific clothing? Not so much.

“The goal is to drive moms crazy with different outfits every single day,” she said.

The mom specifically refers to a school’s “Red Ribbon Week,” which encourages kids to be drug-free. In the video, which has been viewed more than 13 million times, she shared that the school asked its students that week to wear neon (because they’re “too bright for drugs”) and camouflage (so they “don’t let drugs find” them). The mom sarcastically and somewhat humorously explained why this strategy isn’t as “effective perhaps as we want it to be.”

“Crack doesn’t go away if you match the forest,” she said.

Though some commenters have shared their dislike for the video, the majority of feedback has been positive for Radke.

“This is so true,” one commenter wrote. “This made me laugh so hard!” wrote another.

Toward the end of her video, Radke also shared some hilarious information about herself to emphasize her point.

“My drug of choice is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups,” she said. “You could wrap that sucker up in all the camo Bass Pro Shops have to offer, I could still sniff it out.”

Now that’s impressive.
