And this is what happens when you let a couple of teenagers loose in a hotel with nothing to do, little behavior and a cell phone: this way-too-adorable-for-words, totally-safe-for-work-and-the-kids remake of the Beyonce 7 /11 video.
Birane Moore, who goes by Beezy Ban on YouTube, and his sister, Josca, filmed, choreographed and edited their video on a cell phone, putting Beyonce’s music and words to some slickly choreographed dancing, a bit of lip synching and a bunch of kid shenanigans that comes when parents allow kids to be creative, let loose and have fun. They apparently come by this naturally; the Moores are the children of parents who run the Moore Arts Movement Theater Company in Washington, D.C.
Of course, Totally Lila’s yet to see the uncut Beyonce 7/11 video; though I find it to be entertaining, it is a bit racy for 12-year-olds. No doubt, though, once I show this teen version to Totally Lila, she’s going to get some ideas. She’s been known to, in a fit of boredom, start her own YouTube channel—and drag her sister along for the ride.
Seeing as she’s constantly making me do VideoStar videos whenever we’re somewhere waiting for service—the pediatrician’s office, the post office, the grocery store line—I wouldn’t be surprised if MyBrownBaby made a cameo. I guess I’ve done worse things. Ahem.
In the meantime, press play up top and bounce to Birane and Josca’s foolishness. I just love these two. You will, too.
