The setup: Move over, Britney. There’s a new viral-video star in town and the name’s Tyra. But get this: She does it by being funny, not by being the butt of jokes. On “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” last month, Tyra Banks demonstrated the “booty roll” that Beyonce pulls off in her video “Beautiful Liar” with Shakira, in which the singer nearly touches her shoulders with her butt (so says Tyra). Naturally Conan joins in, flinging off his blazer to engage in some booty-shaking too. Then, Tyra caps it all off by feeling up Conan’s pecs. The girl has got it going on.
The source: The clip came from Ms. Banks’ appearance on the April 26 edition of NBC’s “Late Night With Conan O’Brien.”
The hits: The video generated more than 200,000 views on YouTube and also was featured on several celebrity blog sites.
