In case you haven't seen it yet, two-year-old Baylor Mooney is busting some moves to Beyonce's "Crazy in Love."

Her mom says around people she knows, Baylor is a complete ham. On the kitchen counter, with a little fan, and a corn dog, it's been an internet sensation.

“And it is just funny. Because the corn dog is what everyone loves about the video,” says Brooke Mooney, Baylor’s mom.

8,000,000 views on Facebook, 5,000,000 on Twitter--although we are sure those numbers have gone up since we did our interview Tuesday afternoon.

Shows like Ellen, the Today Show and Good Morning America have shown Baylor's act.

This is all completely unexpected, says Brooke, who initially posted the video just four days ago. Then it was only to family and friends, who urged her to take the video farther.

“I never, never thought. I mean I didn't have friends or followers if you would,” she says.

Could lightning strike twice? Brooke says it’s entirely possible, as she has dance parties all the time in her kitchen with Baylor and her brother Krew.

Just where does that dancing talent come from?

“More or less they get their talent from me,” she says with a laugh.
