For most of the video, Alys dad, Rick, seems almost to be bored. But her mother, Lynn, looks like shes riding a mechanical bull with a cactus on the saddle. Jerking back and forth in her seat, and apparently completely unaware that a camera is trained fully on her, Lynn mutters throughout the entire performance.
