Two best buds experienced quite the fishing nightmare when an unexpected leg cramp sent one man hitting the floor and the other scrambling to snag his friend’s fishing pole before losing their fresh catch! Christian comedian Tim Hawkins reminisced on a fabricated event in which him and his buddy Cletus chose to enjoy a day of fishing and sunlight! Set to Carrie Underwood‘s heavenly hit “Jesus Take The Wheel”, Hawkins revamped his parody song with a spinoff title of “Cletus Take The Reel”, casually hinting at what transpired next for the two men.
The music video opens up with the pals speeding into a field on a quad, setting a very dramatic tone for the duration of the parody. As the two boys are seen running in slow motion while holding a cooler and fishing poles, Hawkins began to sing, “I was fishing last Friday on a lake in Mississippi in the humid summer heat/ On a boat with my best friend Cletus who was sleeping in the back seat/ Well the bites were slow and we were running low on chips and Gatorade. It’s been a long hard day.” Hawkins explains that, after feeling a tug on his line, he moved far too quickly and pulled a muscle in his upper thigh. In sheer pain, the fisherman threw back his reel as Hawkins sang, “Cletus take the reel, Take it from my hands/ ‘Cuz I can’t do this on my own.”
Without hesitation, Cletus sprung into action and snatched the fishing pole just in time to save his best friend’s 10 lb bass! The dramatic shoot ends with the two friends swinging on a tire swing and celebrating their unbelievable catch! Check out the hysterical parody below and prepare to laugh!
