Mike Fisher parodies Carrie Underwood's hit song 'Before He Cheats' in spoof video
Mike Fisher, Underwood's husband releases a video titled 'Before She Bleats' that parodies his wife's smash hit 'Before He Cheats'
Mike Fisher, Carrie Underwood's husband, is set to give her a unique surprise. He recreated her famous song 'Before He Cheats' in the form of a parody as an ode to her clothing brand 'Catchin' Deers'. Titled 'Before He Bleats', Fisher released the spoof video in support of Underwood's clothing brand with the song taking a clear stance on hunting.
The original song was released in 2005 and was a smash hit. It continues to remain one of the most well-known songs of Underwood's career.
In an interview with ET, Fisher gave the inside story behind the project and how it came to be, "I think most people know she's not a hunting fan, so I think she wanted to be able to plead the fifth and then be surprised," he quipped. "We just wanted to have fun with it [and] obviously, showcase my vocal talent."
The video has visuals of Fisher standing in a field in a red plaid shirt, replacing Underwood's famous lyrics with hilarious lines, including "Right now he's probably out grazing with a corn-fed doe and it’s probably getting frisky." He changed the famous lyric "Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats," into "Maybe next time she'll think before she bleats."
Fisher explained to ET why the word bleat was used, saying that does make a bleating noise in the mating season which makes the title appropriate.
The song is essentially about a hunter following a buck, who he manages to shoot only after he hears a bleat. The bleat is in fact from a real deer instead of an imitation, which adds to the hilarity of the song.
The obvious question that would arise is how easily did Underwood give away the copyright to her song? Fisher explained that they didn't have to go to her. "Carrie didn't write the song — we didn't have to go through her, thank goodness," said Fisher. "She might not have approved it." Fisher isn't too worried about his wife's reaction because he believes it's better to ask her permission than her forgiveness.
The major theme of the video is hunting and this was intentionally created to highlight how different Fisher and Underwood are. Fisher loves to Hunt while Underwood is a staunch vegan who adores animals. Fisher believes their differences are what unites them. "Opposites attract," said Fisher. "My wife is the best. She puts up with my hunting and she loves me."
Fisher and Underwood have been married for eight long years and are expecting the arrival of their second child. Their first son Isaiah Michael Fisher was born in 2015. Underwood is also preparing for her upcoming tour 'Cry Pretty 360'.
