Remember the annual talent shows in elementary school? Many of you wouldn’t want to miss this fun event to catch a glimpse of your classmates’ talent or showcase your own talent, we bet.
Our talented classmates sometimes never fail to surprise us with their creativity—like what these four funny fifth-graders at the New Braunfels Christian Academy, in Texas, did. They put on the best talent show to have their peers laughing their heads off. The one-of-a-kind performance caused the audience to erupt into laughter.
Not every one of us likes to perform in front of a large crowd, but in an annual talent show in the New Braunfels Christian Academy in New Braunfels in 2017, four 10-year-old boys—Rider, Hunter, Mason, and Graham—wowed the crowd with their hilarious enactment after weeks of practice.
Before the start of the goofy performance, when a large black sheet was pulled away, the audience immediately dissolved into laughter the moment they saw the boys’ heads and arms with the “body” of a baby in disguise. What happened next earned them even more applause.
The boys dressed as babies, with their colorful puppet-like costumes, onesies, bibs and pacifiers in their mouths, then danced and lip-synced to Taylor Swift’s hit song Shake It Off.
Our fifth grade boys' performance at this past spring's elementary talent show has had over 1.8 million views on You Tube! A big announcement may be forthcoming. Stay tuned!
Of course, Taylor Swift’s song was not the only song. As the talented boys danced to a variety of different songs, from Kung Fu Fighting to YMCA, their performance got really interesting and fun!
The boys’ perfectly synchronized dance moves and silly expressions on their faces had their classmates and teachers in stitches. At one point, they even donned sunglasses and baseball hats to liven up the show.
Rider, Hunter, Mason, and Graham were absolutely too funny for words! Even they themselves couldn’t help but giggle! In the end, the audience cracked up and gave them a big round of applause. Well, who could not resist giving a smile?
By looking at the props, one could see that the boys had put in a lot of effort in creating this splendid and not-so-traditional performance for the talent show!
Baseball and Softball are over. And then both kids make AllStar teams. 😴 I'm not coaching either team, though. Excited to be a crazy fan tonight!
Fortunately, this comical performance was recorded on video and uploaded to YouTube on May 12, 2017, by Mason’s father, Randy Benson.
The footage of this less-than-five-minute video has since gone massively viral, racking up more than 15 million views and over 99,000 likes.
Most viewers were impressed by the boys’ performance. “This was funny and very creative!!” one YouTube user wrote.
Another commented: “That was legit the funniest thing I have ever seen.”
Mason and his buddies performed in the talent show this afternoon…
“It’s like my 20th time watching and I just noticed all the laughing in the background,” another remarked.
“I wish I was as talented as them,” another said.
It’s evident Rider, Hunter, Mason, and Graham have a comedy gene in their DNA! We’re sure their brilliant and hilarious performance will be an unforgettable one for their classmates and teachers for a long time.
