A Rhode Island woman named Mary Halsey "straight up killed" her rendition Missy Elliott's "Work It," as the rap star herself declared on Tuesday (Aug. 7).
During what appears to be an outdoor karaoke session, Halsey introduces herself as Missy's "funky white sister," and proceeds to perfectly execute the lyrics to "Work It," including the famous elephant sound and some pretty risque proclamations.
Elliott got ahold the video, and loved it. "She straight up killed 'Work it' with the yea yea yea at the beginning & the sound effects & all," she wrote on Twitter and Instagram.
Halsey is a recreation assistant at a nursing and rehabilitation center according to her Facebook page, and can now add viral sensation to her resume.
