A teen named Tayler decided to record a video of herself dancing to Akon’s “Smack That.” She’d also like the millions of people who have seen the video to know that yeah, she did think she looked pretty cool at the time.
Now, the video has been viewed over 13 million times – no doubt because so many people are looking past Tayler and at her little brother Beau making a mockery of her coolness in the background after he sneaks into the frame.
After all, isn’t that what little brothers are for?
After the video was posted and gone viral, Tayler answered some burning questions filling her inbox.
For example: “Yes. Yes I did think this was sexy. Thank you for noticing.”
Hey, at just 14 years old, we think she’s pretty cool for trying out her dance moves. And sadly, at just 14 years old, she’s had to deal with a lot of rude comments as well.
For a teen, she had way more confidence than we did, but people still felt the need to comment on her appearance. And to that, she said:
“Idk what you’re all talking about, but the orange t-shirt, greasy low ponytail, braces and ill-fitting jeans are all flattering. Clearly I’m the only one here who has watched ‘What not to wear [when in a viral video edition].'”
And she’s over it. In fact, she just wants to thank the haters for all the cash:
“Beau (Little brother) is still a dancing machine. We enjoy remaking this video at wedding receptions and children’s birthday parties for extra cash…Thanks for the views! Just know that I think of each and every one of you when I count all the money made off of making my awkward phase a public display.”
Siblings in sync
As Tayler dances away, her younger brother tries out some far more bold dance moves.
Maybe he has no idea this is going on YouTube. Or maybe at that age, he just doesn’t care.
What matters most is being able to troll your sister until she gets mad.
Beau must know this choreography pretty well since he’s able to do much of it along with Tayler.
He’s a pretty goofy backup dancer, but commenters appreciated his spunk nevertheless.
“I wish I had that kid’s confidence, especially at that age. He’s just crushing it. Good for you, little guy.”
In a particularly hilarious scene, we even get a butt-shake from the boy – and he’s impressively fast!
At that point, it’s clear the video is really more about him.
“When the background dancer is better than the lead,” said one viewer.
Frankly, we love Tayler’s moxie as well. These parents must have a pretty fun-loving household if their kids are willing to dance with the doors open!
Someone got smacked alright
Beau does, however, get caught during the video.
And despite the fact that she didn’t shut her door for some privacy, Tayler takes it like any 14-year-old sister would.
Beau’s days are numbered.
And once he knows he’s caught he hightails it out of there faster than he can shake his butt!
Immediately screaming for his mom, he knows sister justice will come down swift and hard.
But first Tayler needs to gather her thoughts about her brother “ruining” the video.
It doesn’t take long to decide that she’s going to have to “smack that” – just not in the way Akon intended.
We’re left to wonder just what a punishment he got. But despite the yelling, we know he lived to dance another day.
