Missy Elliott Joins Her 'Funky White Sister' For Surprise Duet Of 'Work It'
But if you're feeling blue and you need a little something to get that chin up, then all you need do is turn to the internet and you'll find an amusing little clip to remind you that it's not all bad. Case in point: the recent performance from Mary Hasley a.k.a. Mrs. Funky White Sister.
The karaoke queen's cover of Missy Elliott's iconic hit 'Work It' went viral last month after she posted her incredible barbeque performance online.
Missy herself even took to Twitter to share the video, commenting, "I just found out I have a FUNKY WHITE SISTER," before remarking, "she brought her home girl with her from da hood that keep tip toeing in the background with a plate of food, yo I'm done!"
The internet being the internet, Mary's story spread like wildfire and she wound up on Thursday's episode of The Ellen Show to offer up some background on the story and to perform her epic rendition of the song.
This in itself was viral gold, but then in a shock twist Missy joined her Funky White Sister on the stage to finish off the track. Instead of buckling under the pressure, Mary cracked on and barely missed a beat - what a pro!
You can even catch host Ellen Degeneres bopping along to the track, as well as actor Kristen Bell who was quite literally lovin' every second of the performance from the sidelines.
After the show, Missy took to Twitter again to share her thanks towards Ellen and to her newfound sister who she called one of the 'sweetest' people she's ever met.
It warms the cockles of your heart, doesn't it?

Although the hype surrounding this viral sensation will likely die down over the next few months, at least Mrs. Funky White Sister can say she put her thing down, flipped it and reversed it with Missy herself - and we enjoyed every second of it.
