Some social media users may intentionally attempt to go viral, but others stumble into a moment of fame without trying at all. For one mother-daughter duo, a daughter’s brief heist caught on camera earned them their viral moment on TikTok.
The video was originally posted in October but is getting a second life from Google searches. It begins with Brianna and her friend dancing into the frame as Fergie’s “Fergalicious” plays. As they dance in front of the camera, Brianna’s daughter, KaLynn, pops into the frame and reaches directly for the camera.
She looks over her shoulder at her mom before running away in glee. Shaky cam aside, the toddler is able to perfectly capture her speed and pure excitement. Brianna eventually grabs onto KaLynn and the camera, putting an end to the chaotic 10-second chase and video.

Brianna typically uploads videos featuring her daughter. Her TikTok bio reads, “Basically all videos are with my daughter, she’s the star of the show.”
As the bio says, KaLynn quickly took over the hearts of many on TikTok. In less than one week, the video has gotten over one million views and 200,000 likes.
“The joy on her face during the getaway was everything,” one commenter wrote.
However, like many other viral TikToks, it really went viral once it was reuploaded on Twitter. There, the video of KaLynn’s heist has gotten over 8.5 million views.

A Young Spotlight Stealer
It also isn’t the only time KaLynn has invaded a TikTok and stole the spotlight. In another TikTok, Brianna and a friend can be seen trying to follow a TikTok dance before KaLynn runs into the frame to steal the phone away mid-recording.
Brianna included a clip from an alternate perspective to show them chasing a giggling KaLynn as she ran away with the phone.
