Dancer of the Week: Toddler Goes Viral After Dancing To Beyoncé With a Corn Dog in Hand
Who: Baylor Mooney
Why we picked her: Sometimes, a corn dog and a Beyoncé song are all you need to reach pure joy… just ask this adorable two-year-old!
Baylor Mooney has brought a smile to the faces of millions this week with her happy-go-lucky kitchen counter dance set to Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love!” What makes her routine even better is a personal fan blowing her hair just like Queen Bey as she holds a tight grip on a half-eaten corn dog.
“It is just funny. Because the corn dog is what everyone loves about the video,” Baylor’s mom, Brooke Mooney, told their local NBC News affiliate KOLO.
Brooke, based in Reno, Nevada, posted the video on Facebook over the weekend for her family and friends to enjoy. However, it wasn’t until Baylor’s uncle Brecken Fowler posted it to Twitter with the caption: “My niece loves some @Beyoncé,” that it really took off!
Since Saturday, Brecken’s Twitter post has racked up nearly 6 million views, the original clip on Facebook has more than 15 million views, and the video has been widely shared across social media—even inspiring memes on Instagram! And that’s not all: The pint-sized dancing machine’s clip has even been featured on Good Morning America, Ellen and the Today Show broadcasts.
Baylor, we’re crazy in love with your dance moves, and clearly, so is everyone else!
Fun fact: Baylor isn’t the only one with rhythm in her family, her brother Kash has also got some moves!
