Netizens were surprised to see a thoughtful toddler covering the eyes of her doll before trying out pole dancing like her mom.
Pole dancing is an artform that only a few appreciate. Irrespective of the taboos associated with pole dancing, it is good to be practiced as an exercise to stay fit and even pursue as a hobby. A woman on TikTok, who goes by the name @lyssa_delrey and mostly shares videos of her pole dancing, recently went viral with over 19 million views for a video of her toddler doing something amusing with her pole equipment.
Her little daughter, who is seemingly fascinated with the mother's pole dancing hobby, tried to do some spins and tricks on the metal pole fixed inside a room. Reba McEntire's iconic track "I'm A Survivor" plays in the background of the video as Lyssa's daughter lays a towel over her doll which is already lying face down on the floor. She does this to cover the doll's face before trying the pole dance. Their pet dog watches on as the little girl does a brief spin on the pole before leaving it and checking on the toy. The whole lighthearted video has left people in splits.
While most of the netizens might have expected Lyssa to get lectured by annoying people on parenting and how she shouldn't let her young daughter try pole dancing, the video surprisingly got an overwhelming amount of positive comments laced with humor. People found the little girl's act of covering her doll absolutely chucklesome before she swung on the pole. Some netizens guessed that she had learned this from her own mother who might have kept her daughter from watching her perform pole dancing acts or maybe it is just a coincidence. The viral video did end up gaining countless wholesome comments.
Replying to one such comment, Lyssa wrote: "She went to great lengths to make sure the baby didn’t see. Face down and a blanket just in case. Such a good mom." @83amethyst commented: "She got her baby to sleep right by the stage and secured the bag. This a real mother mothering right here!" @baddieblynn joked: "Best mother on TikTok she waits till her baby’s sleep to go to work and provide." @wee_dan1981xx chimed in and wrote: "This video and song were made for each other. I cannot breathe." @courtneyconnelly97 wrote: "This is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen in my life" while @amandaphillips36 added: "She is adorable and this had me dying laughing." A few people even pointed out how the pet dog was playing the dutiful bouncer or a security guard at the back and it added more flavor to the already entertaining little clip.
