Jessica Frech returns with a sequel to the viral sensation "People of Wal-Mart" debuting today on her YouTube Channel.

After more than 9 million views on her premiere ode to the retail supercenter, the timing was perfect to kick off the holiday shopping season. "I was overwhelmed by the response to the first video," says singer-songwriter Jessica Frech in a statement. "What started out as a total fluke, fun session turned into a viral video poke at our fashion choices. I can't say I'm much better, I've rocked my own set of SpongeBob SquarePants jammies more than once to our local Wal-Mart."

The initial inspiration for the satire came when Jessica was bored in class and stumbled across the PeopleofWalmart.com site. As an aspiring songwriter and student at Belmont University in Nashville, it became a personal challenge and comedic adventure to immortalize these images in a song.
