Do you remember your elementary school talent shows?
For me, the school talent show was the most exciting time of the year. I loved watching everyone’s performances, but I can honestly say I never had the guts to get up on stage myself.
At the end of the 2017 school year, the New Braunfels Christian Academy in Texas held its own talent show for students.
And as a result of a performance being recorded by a parent and uploaded to YouTube, four 5th-graders have since been launched into viral superstardom.
The video was uploaded to YouTube on May 12th 2017, by Randy Benson. He is the father of Mason, one of the boys featured in the performance. The four-and-a-half-minute clip shows the MCs of the talent show introducing the boys: Rider, Hunter, Mason, and Graham.
With that, a black sheet is pulled from a large box-like object, exposing four heads and pairs of arms attached to what appear to be baby-sized bodies.
Within a few seconds, the opening notes of Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off” begin playing as the first boy in the lineup lip-synchs along:
“I stay out too late, got nothing in my brain. That’s what people say, ou ou… “
Each boy sings a line or two of the song, but just when you think the act is settling down, they start doing a choreographed dance routine with the hilarious, onesie-clad bodies.
As Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off” ends, the music suddenly shifts and the mini performers grab hats and bats, tossing and hitting baseballs with their itty-bitty, baby bodies.
After a few seconds, the music switches again, and the iconic beginning notes of “Kung Fu Fighting” being to play.
As the boys continue their routine, the audience is in stitches.
For me, watching the boys’ expressions was half the fun of the video. Even they can’t contain their giggles during the hilarious, baby dance routine.
The boys’ performance continues in this way until the end, changing songs and moves, and cracking up the entire audience in the process.
Since being uploaded to YouTube in May of 2017, the boys’ performance has garnered over 4.5 MILLION YouTube views and over 31,000 likes.
If you’re in need of a smile, watch the boys’ performance for yourself.
I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
