There's nothing like becoming hands-on when it comes to your work. WTKR's Laila Muhammad was just having fun while reporting on how viral sensations are made when she became one herself.

Muhammad had set out to explain how people go viral and can earn money off their viral videos. To show how easy it was to create a video, Muhammad and her news directors got into "formation." The crew made a video of Muhammad learning Beyoncé's dance moves from "Formation," and of course she went viral in the process.

In the hilarious video, Muhammad is practicing her dance movies in a bathroom stall, with tissue under her shoe, as well as in her kitchen and even in an elevator. But when she interrupts a weatherman, the scene is priceless.

What you do when you learn that new Beyoncé move... So this video went viral over the weekend. There are thousands of facebook, Twitter, vine and Instagram users sharing the video. There's a reason behind the madness, or awesomeness, however you look at it. Tune in to WTKR NewsChannel 3 Tuesday at 11 to see what it takes to be a social star. They get paid by the way. Here's a preview of what's to come Tuesday night plus a behind-the-scenes interview with video's creators: http://wtkr.com/2016/02/12/tuesday-at-11-social-stars/
