The Loop: What's the big deal with the word 'haboob?'

This week on "The Loop," I take a special look at a homegrown viral video.

Brophy Preparatory High School in Phoenix decided to make a parody of Ylvis' "The Fox" that has become this year's "Gangnam Style." The problem? The video is made by high school students. It racked up the sins, but there was a redeeming factor.

I also take a look at BatDad, the newest Vine celebrity. This guy found a way to make bother parenting and a decent Christian Bale impression look funny. More power to him.

Finally, we need to talk about the word "haboob." So many Arizonans hate the word because of its Arabic origins, but it turns out they're all hypocrites.
