Can you imagine having your job application go viral?!?!
This was the case for YouTuber Shelby Mitchusson who uploaded a video of herself signing all the lyrics to Eminem’s empowering anthem “Lose Yourself.” The video is actually back from 2014, but has recently gone viral.
In the video description, Mitchusson explains that the video is meant “for ASL Interpreting purposes only.”
Shelby had no idea her video would go viral. Eight months ago, she submitted the video above for an application to work with the ASL (American Sign Language) team at Austin City Limits. For anyone who saw the video, it’s no surprise that she got the job.
By Thursday night (May 28th, 2015), the YouTube video had more than 215,000 views after it became a top-trending topic on Facebook.
She took to her personal account to thank everyone for sharing and watching the clip saying, “I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has shared my video and thank you for taking the time to watch it. I have to say, I did not upload it for entertainment purposes, I uploaded it purely for interpreting.”
Shelby now says that she’d love to do more songs soon, to which we can only say… yes please!!!
