Franchesca Leigh Ramsey, a 27-year-old freelance graphic designer, is among the many viral sensations to have parodied Beyonce’s latest video “Countdown.”
In perhaps the most socially poignant of the parodies, Ramsey’s “Student Loan Countdown,” highlights the trouble many U.S. college students have paying back their college loans.
In the parody, Ramsey sings:
“Oh, should I stand out on Wall Street?
would that even help me?
Not sure what I should do. Barack are you listening?
Oh, can I get a forebearance?
No help from my parents
I’m doing this on my own
Sallie Mae I can’t pay off my student loans.
