‘Carpool Karaoke’ parody is big hit in Illinois diocese

Two priests of the Diocese of Rockford, Ill., and their bishop are the stars of a new video making the rounds on the internet that parodies the “Carpool Karaoke” segments made famous by James Corden’s “The Late Late Show” on CBS.

According to the Rockford Register Star, the video was unveiled last Sunday at an annual youth summit in the diocese attended by 1,700 teens. Father Keith Romke and Father Kyle Manno pretend they’re driving to the summit. Halfway there (at about 3:50 into the video) they pick up their “boss,” Bishop David Malloy, to give him a ride. You can watch the whole thing here:

So far, the video has nearly 21,000 views. The paper called it a big hit with the teens.

    I love this video! It certainly makes the priests more approachable to the young adults in the church. The young adults might be able to share their thoughts easier if they have priests they can relate to. Good luck at your summit.

    This is an awesome video. Priests are people too! Just like Jesus who took on the human form. Great to see all of them enjoying themselves.

    If I was a teen looking for the truth these priests would cause me to despair.
