They say lightning never strikes the same place twice, but whoever said that clearly had no idea that Ali and Michael Hoffman would grace the internet one day!
In 2015, the father and daughter were stuck inside in Dallas, Texas, because of winter weather. They needed a way to pass the time, so they made up a routine to “Uptown Funk” and posted it online. Five years later during the novel coronavirus pandemic, the duo came back strong with a whole new performance!
This time, they made up a routine to Jess Glynne’s “Hold My Hand,” and the video is arguably even better than the first!
Not only is it a true joy to watch this family have so much fun during a stressful time, but it’s also hard to keep a straight face as Ali desperately tries to hold in her laughter at her dad’s spectacular moves.

Best of all, they totally nail the routine! Ali lip syncs the lead vocals, while Michael comes in as a backup singer. Meanwhile, they play air instruments (which are perfectly synchronized with the song), dance in unison, and try their best to channel the original artist.
Ali’s mom even comes busting in to dance in the finale!
If this clip tells us anything, it’s that the Hoffmans are having a great time together. They’re making the best of their situation — and bringing some humor to everyone else! In fact, they’re so good that even Andy Grammer shared their performance!
Check out their epic duet in the video below, and spread the joy by sharing this story with your friends.
