Sometimes the joy of music becomes too overwhelming to keep inside and you have no choice but to let it out onstage...in the form of an over-the-top dance.


According to Inside Edition, Marie Dallam was performing with the OK City Chorus in Oklahoma City when a particular number called on her to act a little bit silly:

"We didn't really practice. One of the women organizing asked me to ring the jingle bells and be as goofy as possible."

Little did that woman know that Dallam would come through with so much goofiness that a video of the performance quickly went viral!

During the day, Dallam works as an associate professor of religious studies at the University of Oklahoma, but when the time came, she knew she had to find a different side of herself:

"In the moment, I was like, 'Be as goofy as possible'"

Mission accomplished, Marie.

"I think of myself as a serious person and shy in my normal life. Being a member of the OK City [Chorus], it allows me to indulge in my silly side."

Dallam isn't embarrassed at all by her viral status—for her, it's a badge of honor!

"I am not embarrassed, but it is certainly different from my normal persona."

Internet users were grateful Marie went all out for the occasion.

Have you ever heard of a certain job that people call a career and thought... "PEOPLE PAY YOU FOR THAT?!?!"

The nose is constantly being attacked by odors of the world.

Going through one day without having to hold my breath during a certain point, is a miracle.

Of course, I'm a New Yorker, so I maybe exaggerating for people in the countryside.

What's funnier is odors that are pleasant, that shouldn't be.

Have you ever looked and something and thought... "yuck."

But then you smelled it and it was like... "oh lovely,"
