‘1,000 Kilowatts’ – FOX 2’s fun song about the news business

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Have you ever made up your own words to a popular song?  That is what happened to FOX 2 reporter Shawndrea Thomas one day while she was driving home from work.  She heard Bruno Mars' hit "24K Magic" and re-imagined it as a way to introduce viewers to how a TV newsroom works.

Fortunately FOX 2 has an intern with the skills to turn lyrics on a page into a viral video.  DJ Rockette performed the song and helped produce the video.  This is not DJ's first video.  Check out his other hits, Welcome to MissouriBlues Blues Baby and "Who you gonna Watch."

Here are the lyrics for, "1,000 Kilowatts"

Pop pop

They don’t know
