When Debbie Connor and her two daughters, Tara Groves and Kendal Connor, posted their spoof of the Olympic sport curling, they never dreamed it would be viewed as many times as it has.
“We were literally just sitting around on Sunday watching the Olympics and thought this would be funny to do,” Debbie said. “This is just so crazy. We just keep saying, ‘this is such a dumb video.'”
In the video, Debbie can be seen pushing a a robotic vacuum imitating the curling stone and Tara is using a floor sweeper, imitating the curling sweeper. Debbie can also be heard “calling to the sweeper” as can be heard in the actual Olympic sport. Kendal recorded her mom and sister’s spoof, that now has over 13 million views.
It took a few tries to get the vacuum to take a straight path, according to Debbie. But, the third time was a charm and the end result has been social media gold.
Their funny whim has now been shared by NBC Olympics Facebook page with #EverydayOlympics, receiving over 30,000 likes and nearly 10,000 shares.
“We were excited that 100 people saw it,” Debbie said. “If I had known it would be seen so many times, I would have fixed my hair a little.”
Debbie says she is the ultimate fan of Ellen DeGeneres. She has been to the TV host’s daytime talk show twice, but would love for this video to take her back for a third time. Debbie is the dance coach at Daviess County High School and and watches her 9-month-old grandson, Sawyer, during the day.
