Surely all moms like to embarass their kids, right? That wasn’t just my mom? It’s hilarious when they do! And I like to think it builds character, it lets the children know that the world doesn’t end with some social embarassment!

Deb Plafker has been having plenty of fun embarassing her son who has just returned to school via online classes!

Her videos as “Principal Mom” have seriously blown up on Tik Tok!

“Welcome student, to the first day of online school. This is your principal, mom. Just a reminder: lunch today is whatever you make yourself.”

Using their home PA system, Deb thought it would be fun to recreate the morning announcements for her very local student, Max!

Deb is absolutely hilarious with plenty of clever one-liners!

You can tell how much fun she is having in these videos as well,

the way she’s holding back her laughter is absolutely contagious!

What makes it even better is the Max reaction you get at the end of each video!

While Principal Mom is definitely loving this, Student certainly is not!

Now, we gotta give credit where credit is due.

The mastermind behind Principal Mom was Deb’s daughter, 22-year-old Jamie!

“We were making jokes about all the funny things that would happen during this online coronavirus school time. I started writing them all down and said, ‘We have to put this on TikTok. I wrote a little script and said, ‘You’re the actress.’ And so, “Principal Mom” was born.” -Jamie Plafker

Since starting the Principal Mom Morning Announcements videos,

the Plafkers have made ten videos already!

They’re seriously popular, and some have over 3 million views!

And without the pandemic up and disappearing I would imagine we’ll be seeing plenty more Principal Mom to come in the coming weeks!

Hopefully Max doesn’t get too embarassed by the sudden fame!

Jamie both writes these jokes and films, while Deb is actress supreme!

The humour is really well crafted and super relateable!

They have some absolute knee-slappers like:

“Drama class has been cancelled. Because with your sister living here, there’s enough drama in this house already.”

“Today we are doing end of the day announcements, because Principal Mom decided to sleep in this morning.”

The best surprise of all? I was expecting maybe a 8 or 9 year old kid but Max is a full on teenager at 17, beard and all!

His shame is palpable in these photos.

Sorry Max! Your misery is just too entertaining!

“Dude, get out, seriously.” -Max Plafker

Pretty much every video features Deb’s singing as well and almost always with a funny twist!

In one video, her morning announcement theme song is just the Game of Thrones theme song!

Baby Shark and fire alarms are featured as well, all of which are played over the PA system,

ensuring maximum annoyance for Max! (No pun intended)

They’re all hilarious videos to give a watch, so we need to give thanks to this newly iconic comedy duo!

They’re bringing laughter to millions of people when they need it most!

Principal Mom even added:

“It started out as a joke in our house and now we’ve warmed people’s homes! It’s really nice.”

How great is it that they get more than just some enjoyment out of this?

They get personal fulfillment as well!

You can give the video below a watch for a good taste of what you’ll be getting yourself into!
