It took all of about 10 seconds for a Minnesota dad and his two sons to go viral with a Thanksgiving Day dance video. 

Michael Tovar posted the short clip to his social media profiles around noon on Thanksgiving. By 6 p.m. the video had garnered more than 65,000 likes and 330,000 views on TikTok – and it's blown up from there.  

As of this writing, more than 1.1 million people have liked the TikTok video of Michael and his boys, Stiles and Silen, dancing to Perry Como and The Fontana's rendition of "It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas." 

"From 847 followers and 9,427 likes to 12.4K FOLLOWERS!!!! and 1 MILLION LIKES!!!!!" Tovar wrote in a Facebook post Tuesday. 

We have no idea what the dance moves are called, but that baby shake is dynamite.
