Spring… are you out there? One local family turned Disney’s hot snowman song into a melodic plea for warm weather with a side of funny.

Featuring local Mt. Washington mom Kirsten Mackin and filmed/edited by her preteen daughter Sarah, I Don’t Want to Build a Snowman is EXACTLY what we’ve all been thinking. A parody of Disney’s Do You Want to Build a Snowman? (read: no!),  it’s racked up close to 1400 views on YouTube and counting.

“This has been so encouraging and motivational for Sarah – making videos is ‘her thing’ and you’ve really inspired her!” Kirsten wrote in a recent Facebook post.  “She’s already brainstorming her next project!! I just hope it allows me to make a fool of myself running around in warmth and sunshine!!!”

We hear that Sarah developed her mad film skills by participating in Wide Angle Youth Media, a non-profit organization that provides Baltimore youth with media education to tell their own stories and become engaged with their communities through quality after-school programming, in-school opportunities, summer workshops, community events, and an annual Youth Media Festival.

Take a look — and have a laugh. There is one grown-up word in the film. Expresses our sentiments exactly, but you might want to view without little ears around.

Can’t wait to see what this duo comes up with next!

{And we hope it involves running around in warmth and sunshine, too!}
