CINCINNATI (AP) – A traffic reporter at the Cincinnati CBS affiliate has gained national attention for his dramatic on-air parody of a Disney movie song.

WKRC’s Bob Herzog changed “Let it Go,” sung by Princess Elsa in the animated movie “Frozen,” to “Just Don’t Go” to reference the winter weather.

As images of cars skidding on ice and traffic conditions play, Herzog dramatically sings lines like: “I must share what dispatchers say, all the traction’s gone. School’s closed or at least they’re on a delay.”

A YouTube video of Friday’s performance has a half-million views, and media outlets nationwide have written about it.

The parody is part of Herzog’s “Dance Party Fridays.”

He’s changed Elton John’s “Rocket Man” to “Traffic Man,” Tom Petty’s “Free Falling” to “Tree Falling” and Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana” to “Drive Indiana.”
