That Time When Our ‘All About That Bass’ Cover Almost Went Viral
A good viral video generally isn’t made with the intention of being posted for social media stats. Usually, it’s posted for the enjoyment of its initial audience and just takes off from there… much like the one I posted of my daughter and I singing pop-artist, Meghan Trainor’s, “All About That Bass.”
My kid and I had been sick all week with RSV and the flu. She was wanting to get out of the house and go to the gym to play. Being the responsible parent that I am, told her we needed to rest and make sure we were 100% before exerting ourselves again. She was upset so instead, asked if we could make a “music video” since her life dream was (and still is) to be a rockstar. She’ll tell you, too. “All About That Bass” is a song that she and I sing together all the time, so that’s just what we did.
She gets so serious about her singing and even though we were both still a little stuffy at the time, she did a great job and as always, got really into the song. So much so, that when I initially (and almost reluctantly) posted the production, without ever thinking it had the potential to go viral, I joked that “she may be all about that bass… but I’m all about that face!” You have to see it for yourself… she gets super serious at the very end and it’s hilarious.
It was posted at 9:26pm the night we recorded it and by the next morning, already had 1.9K views on Facebook. I couldn’t believe it. Then by the 24 hr mark, it was up to 3.8K views… already classified as “trending” and had been shared numerous times. By that point I already knew it had the potential to become a viral video, so with the suggestion of a friend, I made sure it got uploaded to my YouTube account where it now sits and is still collecting views… just nothing like on Facebook. I’ve had several people tell me that we should have tried to get it on The Ellen Show and make my little rockstar’s dreams come true… but it just needs to be shared more. As a fun little throwback, I’ve included it in this post for your viewing pleasure.
If it makes you smile then please feel free to share it on your social sites!
The Facebook and Socialcam links are included in the video’s description as well, so you can check it out there too!
