2 Quebecers Wrote A Parody About Curfew & It's Basically The Province's New Anthem (VIDEO)

Although Quebec's current curfew may have sent shockwaves through the province and was met with much disagreement, it has also become the subject for some hilarious content on social media.

A couple from Quebec, Johnny and Alessia Laurelli, recently created what may be the most iconic and relevant parody of OneRepublic's "Apologize" I've ever heard.

Between the nostalgic feels that the song being remade provides and the all-too-real lyrics about Quebec's curfew, I think it's safe to say this is the soundtrack we all needed right now.

In the video, Johnny's 15 years of being a vocalist and studio engineer truly shine through.

"This week, my wife and I were joking about it over supper, randomly blurting out things like 'It's too lateeee,' and then we decided to actually start writing down some lyrics," Johnny said while telling MTL Blog how this song came to fruition.

"They came to us pretty easily, and we knew we had to get this out ASAP. We did it all in 3 days."

So, if you've been wondering how you're going to get through the mix of lockdown and curfew, never forget that comedic relief is the best remedy.
