The Word: Tanning Mom’s new music video is the worst thing
Remember Tanning Mom? Of course you do, her terrifying orange mug is probably permanently seared onto your brain, sort of like mental melanoma. Turns out, though, Tanning Mom aka Patricia Krentcil’s leathery visage is not the most horrible thing about her. That would be her voice, combined with said leather face, showcased in the music video for her new song “It’s Tan Mom.” Which is not so much a song as a PSA about the dangers of the sun, prescription pills and thinking you are a celebrity because you were once on television for being terrible. In it, a leopard print-clad Krentcil slurs incomprehensibly about tanning and other things, backdropped by what is either a close-up of the sun or the pit of molten lava she really ought to be hurled into, post haste.
