Norfolk, Va. - You've seen NewsChannel 3's Laila Muhammad dance before, but you've never seen her like this.

While doing a story about Vine stars, Laila took their advice and created her own catchy video.

She collaborated with coworkers Marquis Cotton and Andrew Bond.  Both Cotton and Bond are show directors at NewsChannel 3 but they’re also known for epic collaborations on some fun social media videos. They came up with the concept and Laila’s challenge was to make it believable.

In the end, they created a 30-second video for Twitter and used the same video to create a 6-second version for Vine and a 15-second version for Instagram.

Since the video hit the Internet, it has gone viral!
