A dad who spotted his daughter filming a craft video decided to add a bit of flair as a backup dancer – but had no idea the video was being sent to her teacher for a school project.
The hilarious clip shows the young girl setting up her camera, announcing “so today we’re going to do some crafts” and asking Alexa to put on some music as she begins her commentary.
With the dad assuming she was simply making a video for her own entertainment, he couldn’t help but show off his incredible moves when the speaker begins to blast Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk.
He demonstrates an impressive array of moves in the kitchen, expertly using the counter to create different levels to the performance, before adding vocals and getting his two sons involved in the flash mob.
His daughter perseveres despite the chaos going on around her, and asks: “What is wrong with this family? I’m just trying to do peace and quiet arts.”
At one point the dad throws his son so high in the air his feet hit the ceiling light, before quickly reassuring the rest of the household not to worry as he is unharmed.
But it wasn’t until his wife checked her daughter’s schooling app that it dawned on him his dance exhibition had been sent to his daughter’s teacher for assessment.
The video has had more than 12 million views on Facebook as the story left people in stitches, gaining 10,000 comments by those praising both the dad’s moves and his daughter’s ability to remain professional in testing circumstances.
Her mum shared the clip, writing: “I was checking Delaney’s seesaw (app for school) and she often will send her teachers random videos wishing them well, or goodnight, or just talking to talk.
“Well…. I found this as a sent video from earlier today. I hope her teacher laughed as hard as I did…. How’s your distance learning going?
“Daddy thought she was just making a ‘tutorial’ like she typically does. He didn’t know she uploaded it to seesaw and sent it to her 1st grade teacher!”
One person commented on the video to say: “I’m crying from laughing so hard.”
A second wrote: “The best part was she didn’t even react to daddy, then says, ‘that’s just my dad’. I lost it!”
Another added: “LOL the best part is how unfazed she is. What a cute and well-spoken girl too! Love this.”
