Giovanna Fletcher’s kids record epic version of Cars 2 song – and husband Tom gets in on the action too

GIOVANNA and Tom Fletcher often share clips of their kids pounding a drum set or jamming to their favourite track – and with a musician dad and an author and presenter as a mum, it's not hard to see where they get their talent from. 

To kill time during lockdown,  the Fletcher boys recorded their very own version of their favourite Cars 2 song "You Might Think" – and it's so epic it's good enough to rival any popular Disney or Pixar theme song.

Proud mum Giovanna posted the four minute clip to Instagram in hope it would help cheer some people up during lockdown with the upbeat rendition of the popular movie soundtrack.

With help from dad Tom, six-year-old Buzz revealed in the clip that he had been creating music over the past two weeks with his younger brothers Buddy, four, and Max, one – and even came up with their very own band name, BUXY.

Explaining how they came up with the name, Buzz explained they'd used a letter from each of their names to create the acronym before detailing  their time in the home recording studio.

The entire video is made up of snippets of their "lockdown project" witch included a brief introduction before Buzz introduced his new song – describing it as "great".


It's clear the youngster already has all the makings of a rock star – even from the young age of six – and we can't believe how good the video actually is.

Equipped with a guitar, a drum set and free-standing microphones, Buzz, took the role of lead vocalist, and busted out the movie lyrics alongside his brother Buddy.

Meanwhile, the youngest of the Fletcher clan, Max, contributed as a back up dancer and with the occasional babble into the mic.

Captioning the video, Giovanna wrote: "Buxy – The Lockdown project! Tom and the boys have been a bit busy. They decided to record Buzz's favourite song from Cars 2 and we decided to share it – think we could all do with a bit of cheering up right now! ENJOY!! Go BUXY!


The post has since been viewed over 300k times and we're pretty sure we'll be seeing an album from BUXY sometime very soon.

The youngsters dad Tom was also eager to show of his kids' talent, and of course his own as band manager, and shared the clip with his 1.8 million followers on Instagram.

He said: " Thought I’d share one of our “lockdown projects” that we’ve been working on with the kids while we’re all staying home during these tough times. We had a blast making it (or watching the kids make it) and hope it puts a smile on your face.

"The song was picked by Buzz as its one of his favourites from Cars 2 called You Might Think. Hope you’re all safe and finding your own ways to keep yourself and the kids happy and busy at home."

And we are so glad they did share the adorable clip because it will now go down as the greatest lockdown anthem of all time.

But it seems many families are turning to music to help get them through the lockdown period with another family sharing  an amazing rendition of the musical hit One Day More from Les Miserables.

Dad Dr Ben Marsh, a history lecturer at Canterbury University, shared the stunning video online where it quickly went viral as a result of their funny lyrics and sweet-sounding harmonies.

The family came up with their own lyrics to the Andrew Lloyd Webber hit to reflect reality of the coronavirus lockdown – and it was hilarious.

Lyrics included lines such as “watch our daddy drink, see our mummy sigh, clapping for the NHS can make ‘em cry” and the video even made its way onto This Morning where it was watched by Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield.

The family later revealed the hilarious antics behind their viral video – and how the parents had to bribe their bored kids to take part as well as making the lyrics less soppy.

One thing's for sure, we will all come out of lockdown with a playlist full of epic anthems made famous by fun-loving families sharing joy and love online.

In other news, this bored family create hilarious ‘nightclub’ in their living room with dad acting as bouncer, kids breakdancing and strobe lights.

Plus, Stacey Solomon shows off clever animal-shaped sandwiches for the kids and reveals her nifty trick to get them perfect.

Meanwhile, you can go on a live safari in your lounge during lockdown to see lions in the Kruger National Park and the Masai Mara.
