WATCH: New Englander Receives Hilarious Singing Birthday Telegram in Viral Video
Once upon a time, there was a guy named Craig who happened to be celebrating his 50th birthday.
Little did he know what was in store.
Everyone loves singing telegrams, right? You know, when someone's paid to deliver a message to someone in song? It's both awesome and hilarious, as long as it's not happening to you.
It reminds this writer of the funny scene in Elf when Buddy (played by Will Ferrell) is mistaken for a "Christmas-gram" before singing his heart out in the middle of the office. We don't know how the other actors managed to keep a straight face.
Anyway, Craig, who appears to be from New England based on the Pats shirt he's rocking, was just doing his thing at the office, when bam. Enter Joy Brooker, a singer, songwriter, and comedian who also happens to do singing telegrams. She'd been paid by Craig's wife to crash a meeting and deliver a hilarious birthday message to Craig in front of his coworkers. The result, complete with song and dance, was nothing short of a masterpiece.
Here's the TikTok video below, featuring a rendition of Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy".
The hysterical video wound up going viral, and has received one million likes and eight million views at the time of this writing.
One thing's for sure, Joy's got talent, pizzaz, and spunk. Despite his embarrassment, we have a feeling Craig got a kick out of it. His coworkers sure did. Happy belated birthday, Craig.
Interested in booking Joy and her singing telegram skills? You can look her up on Facebook here, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you're further away, she's also on Cameo.
In the meantime, we're gonna be listening to "I'm Too Sexy" on repeat.
