Father, wanting kids to "Let It Go," parodies Disney ear worm

We've seen it all, kids going crazy for the toys, lines hours long waiting to meet the "princesses" and the song, that song that just won't go away, but it looks like the fandom that's surrounding the Disney movie "Frozen" doesn't look like it will melt any time soon. 

Come November, the world will have been under Anna and Elsa's power for a year and just few months after the movie's release and ever-growing obsession among, not only kids, but also their parents, is continuing to grow or at least be sticking around for a few more months.

Meanwhile one dad has had enough.  He's gone on You Tube asking, or maybe even begging, his kids to "Let It Go" and do it soon and the pleas have come, of course, in song. The parody was written by Scott Kramer, Joshua Elson, Tovah Kramer, and Molly Elson.  Whether there are really kids, who knows, but it's fun just to poke a little fun of the "Frozen" phenomenon.  

And while one family may be fed up with the hype, another couple is hoping the movie will be their happily ever after. 

According to the Daily Mail, Brian Davis asked his girlfriend Michelle Sequin to marry him.  

Brian said they went to see the hit film together and both fell in love with the film.

He ordered a custom-made version of Anna's coronation dress for Michelle and Hans' costume for himself, found a "castle" in Denver, rented a horse, all for a fairy tale engagement, according to Medavia.

He dropped off the dress at her home for an anniversary dinner, with instructions to wear it, Medavia reported.  

She put on the dress and met him at the location.  He rode up on his horse, hopped off, dropped to one knee and popped the question, according to the Daily Mail.  She said yes of course, and then made a video, lip-synced to "Frozen's" "Love Is An Open Door," to tell their friends to expect a wedding.
