Hooters Liverpool girl explains why they do the ‘cheesy songs and dances’
| Last updated
A Hooters Liverpool worker has finally explained why they sing mid-shift.
By now you've probably seen the viral video of Hooter's workers serenading dinners and serving wings at the iconic American chain.
Now, though, Hooters waitress Leah Phillips has taken to TikTok to answer all your burning questions about the brand.
For those not clued into the American restaurant's newest outpost, we're here to fill you in.
Hooters opened in Liverpool on Monday (21 November) and has already become a sensation on TikTok — even if the popular fast food joint is getting backlash from the local council.
Diners were left shocked at the New Zealand House store as Scouse servers stopped mid-shift suddenly to serenade them with their very own rendition of AC/DC's 'You Shook Me All Night Long'.
People quickly took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the new joint, as one user wrote: "That's tonight’s sleep paralysis dream sorted hahahaha why is that the most awkward thing iv ever seen."
And, to be fair it would be a little jarring to tuck into a plate of chicken wings as someone sings AC/DC at you, which is where Leah comes in.
The waitress finally answered why on earth the waitresses make a song and dance of things: "So there's songs and dances, they're there for entertainment? We do them when you come in with little ones to entertain them. We did them for birthdays. We did them for stag dues. They're there for fun."
That does make a lot of sense, as the restaurant has seen a fair few families head there to celebrate, in fact, that's exactly where Paul Edwards, from Liverpool, took his son, Buddy after he got a brilliant school report.
Proud of the little lad's achievements at school, the 36-year-old thought he'd earned himself a slap-up meal and a night out on the town.
And that included taking the nine-year-old to Hooters.
Though, as Paul told LADBible, he doesn't regret a thing and he had a brilliant time with his son: "We went to hooters as a reward for Buddy getting a great report in school," the proud dad told us.
"He always thought it was fake, so when one opened up in Liverpool, I surprised him with a visit.
"He was a bit shy at first but then he loved it - the staff were great and so helpful, and the food was beautiful."
Adding: "It's a great place to watch the match."
