Five days ago (on October 5, 2018), Myla and Justin Wesson went completely viral.
The father-daughter duo was captured performing an adorable lip-sync routine that’s been viewed more than 35 million times— in less than 5 days.
In the video, you see Justin holding little Myla in front of a mirror. The little girl looks to be wrapped in a pink towel, following their bath ritual. The video’s caption reads:
“A little post-bath lip-sync battle the other night. Myla is one heck of a lip-syncer!”
In the adorable 3-minute clip, you see Justin and Myla lip-syncing to the Maroon 5 song “Girl Like You”.
The song, from the 2017 album Red Pill Blues, is a pop-rock song whose chorus repeats the line, “I need a girl like you.” It’s clearly meant for a romantic love— but honestly, the lyrics fit.
“Cause girls like you run around with guys like me.
Till sundown when I come through
I need a girl like you, yeah, yeah.”
During the minute-long video, Trina records in the background as Myla and Justin move their mouths dramatically to the lyrics. Both beam with giant smiles on their faces, swaying to the beat.
Little Myla seems to be a natural, nailing every word with perfect timing.
Alright, sometimes you can tell she’s winging it, but I still give her an A for adorable— and if the views are any indication, others seem to agree.
Seriously though, don’t tell me you could ever resist that face.
As mentioned, in the 5 days since the video’s been online, the performance has garnered over 35 million views!
In fact, Maroon 5 even caught wind of the routine themselves, retweeting the video and leaving a shoutout to the daddy-daughter pair: “This is too good,” the band wrote.
As you can imagine, the family’s been getting quite a bit of attention.
Three days after the video was posted, on October 8., Trina posted:
“Wow, I’m in complete shock at how quickly Myla and her daddy’s video has gone viral!”
“Thank you for all the love and sweet words!! This has been a crazy few days!”
It’s clear from the interaction in the video that Myla and Justin share an incredible bond.
We always say daughters are ‘daddy’s girls’ but the male presence is more important for a daughter than you’d think.
“A woman’s early relationship with dad, who is usually the first male object of her love, shapes her conscious and unconscious perceptions of what she can expect and what is acceptable in a romantic partner,” Psychology Today notes. In this case, we can be sure that Myla will have some pretty amazing expectations.
People are crazy about this heartwarming video, leaving comments and praise galore.
“Never seen anything so cute!! She’s so small and look how adorable she is already! Beautiful father and daughter moves!”
“This is the ultimate goal!! So much happiness filled in this family, so excited for more content from you guys!!”
“The cutest thing I’ve seen in my life.”
“I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched this. Thank you for sharing the love.”
