It looks like Missy Elliott just found her "funky white sister." In a video that's going viral, Rhode Island resident Mary Halsey did a perfect karaoke version of Missy's "Work It," and the rapper liked it so much she tweeted it.

"I just found out I have a FUNKY WHITE SISTER😳😩😂forreal doe😂& 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!😂 but she straight killed “Work It” sound effects & all🙌🏾 I love it🔥🙌🏾"

If you're thinking to yourself, "Wait, I can't even tell what this woman is saying half the time," that's because the actual lyrics to the song are straight gibberish. As a quick refresher (in case you're not totally up on your Missy trivia), she raps:

"Is it worth it? Let me work it / I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it / Ti esrever dna ti pilf, nwod gniht ym tup / Ti esrever dna ti pilf, nwod gniht ym tup / If you got a big, let me search ya / And find out how hard I gotta work ya / Ti esrever dna ti pilf, nwod gniht ym tup / Ti esrever dna ti pilf, nwod gniht ym tup"

Yeah. That's real. The video Missy shared currently has almost 700,000 views, and Mary's own post to Facebook has 3.3 million.

The best part of this entire thing is that Missy didn't tweet the whole video. So, if you want to see all 4 minutes and 37 seconds of Mary's incredible performance, watch it below.

Happy Wednesday!
