A Cincinnati traffic reporter captured the emotion of the Oscar-nominated Disney movie tune 'Let it Go,' when he sang his rendition on-air for his local viewers. It seems he's also captured the attention of nearly a million viewers online.

As part of the station's "Dance Party Friday" segment, WKRC's Bob Herzog changed 'Let it Go,' sung by Princess Elsa in the animated movie 'Frozen,' to 'Just Don't Go' to reference the ugly winter weather.

Herzog dramatically gestured to traffic maps and sung about icy conditions as shots of cars skidding on ice played over.

"I must share what dispatchers say, all the traction's gone. School's closed or at least they're on a delay," he sang.

He was inspired to recreate the song after seeing 'Frozen' twice with his daughter. The video has already garnered nearly one million hits since it was posted on YouTube a week ago.

This isn't his first spin on a popular song. His YouTube channel shows him spoofing Elton John's "Rocket Man" to "Traffic Man," Tom Petty's "Free Falling" to "Tree Falling" and Barry Manilow's "Copacabana" to 'Drive Indiana.'
