Clever Taylor Swift Blank Space parody a hit for mums

Inspired by that afternoon slump, caffeine, and a little confusion over Taylor's "Blank Space" lyrics.

A CLEVER parody of Taylor Swift's song Blank Space, by exhausted mums in need of a Starbucks coffee, is going viral with more than 3.2 million views on YouTube.

Swift's song may not be coffee, but it has not stopped What's Up Moms from putting together a well produced tribute to 'Starbucks lovers'.

It is only at the end of the video that they reveal, of course, that Swift's song is not about coffee at all.

The parody follows these sleep-deprived mothers who are counting down to bedtime and can't function without their cups of caffeine.

The video has attracted more than 800 comments, plenty from mums in need of some humour.

Please do more parodies!!! I just love them!!! With a little humor in your vids is awesome!!! Must be super stressful there!!!

And it wasn't just the mums who loved it.

Some of the lyrics to Taylor Swift's Blank Space song

Cause we're young and we're reckless
We'll take this way too far
It'll leave you breathless
Or with a nasty scar
Got a long list of ex-lovers
They'll tell you I'm insane
But I got a blank space baby
And I'll write your name
