When his daughters were filming a "Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)" dance video, Mississippi dad Mike Jones decided to make a surprise appearance.
As the unsuspecting girls performed the iconic dance routine, Jones joined in right behind them. When the sisters spotted their dad, however, they abruptly stopped.
Jones told The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that his 10- and 12-year-old daughters often do creative projects like dance videos together. “I heard them and peeked out and saw my mother recording and came in behind them," he said. "We watched it and said it would be funny to share this for friends and family, but now it’s funny for people all over the world.”
The video view count has reached almost 18 million on Facebook, with commenters calling for them to appear on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."
Jones' daughters seem to be enjoying their moment of viral fame. In his interview with the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, the dad said, “Their first reaction was they were mad and thought I ruined their video. I always jump in their videos, but once we posted it and their friends starting messaging them saying they saw them on the Internet, now it’s the greatest thing in the world.”
You sneaky dad!
