Tish From ‘I’m In My Mum’s Car’ Vine Is Making A Documentary About Her Life

When Tish Simmonds hopped in the driver's seat of her mum's car and filmed herself saying, 'I'm in my mum's car, broom broom', she had no idea those six seconds would change her life forever.

The vine was viewed millions of times and has even been referenced by the likes of Harry Styles and Kim Kardashian.

In the five years since she shared the video with the world, Tish has used her social media stardom for good, touring the country to attend charity events and releasing two charity singles. Her vine has also been remixed countless times (the DJ Swoon Trap remix is particularly good).

Oh, and she also fought and defeated the Wealdstone Raider, again at a charity event... seriously, it happened.

Now the vine supremo is planning on making a documentary about her life, focusing on how that viral video changed everything.

Tish, from Huddersfield, UK, hopes to start making the documentary - entitled Tish: The Life Of Vine - this summer.

Speaking to LADbible, she said: "It will follow my life, about vine fame and the good points and bad points, the ups and downs, the internet bullies, the hate and praise, and all that I've done since and the good people I've met."

Reflecting on the summer of July 2014, when she shared the vine with the world, Tish said it was 'totally crazy'.

She said: "This particular day I was outside, my mum was hanging out the washing as it was a hot summer's day. We quickly did the video and I never posted it for a least three or four days on vine.

"Within a couple of days it went totally crazy, my phone was like on fire. People were messaging me saying I'm all over the internet, my vine had gone viral.

"I'd since then found out that it reached millions and millions of views all over the world. It was like, crazy."

Tish created a sequel to the video a year later and she plans to create more videos relating to the original in the future.

In terms of props, it won't be a problem for Tish, as her mum remains the same old 'normal mum' and she still has the all important car.

She said: "My mum continues to be the normal mum she was before, but I mean, it was a bit crazy the first few months, everyone wanted to talk to us and meet us including the Radio 1 breakfast show.

"We still have the car; it's my mum's pride and joy. It has had a new spray job and other wear and tear, but it still looks like the same car from nearly five years ago, and is just as famous as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

"The plan for the car is it will always stay with us as it's part of a famous history."
