McDonald’s manager has people swooning with TikTok dance that she did ‘for a laugh’
A McDonald’s shift manager has gone viral online for posting a clip of herself dancing with one of her colleagues – with people begging to “speak to the manager”. Molly Nobes received more than 3.9 million likes on the short TikTok video that she took with her co-worker and friend, Crystal, which shows them both dancing to the viral sound, ‘Hit chu wit da blick’.
After posting the video, Molly was inundated with comments and messages from people swooning over her, with many of them saying they would find an excuse to speak to the manager if she was working – or alternatively, would forget what they wanted to complain about altogether, the Daily Star reports.
But Molly, 21, has insisted the video was never meant to attract that much attention, and instead was only filmed “for a laugh” with her close friend and co-worker.
She told the Daily Star: “I’ve been a shift manager for about a year. Honestly, I saw the trend and asked one of my good friends/co-workers if she wants to do a TikTok with me.
“I didn’t expect so many views but it’s great seeing all the support for McDonald’s! I’ve seen some of the responses from men and some of them are actually quite funny!
“But I didn’t do the video for attention from men, more for a laugh with my friend!”
The video starts with Crystal dancing on her own, alongside text which reads: “You want to talk to my manager? Sure.” Then, she moves forward and Molly – who is from Southampton – comes into the frame doing the same routine as her friend.
And the shift manager, who posts on TikTok under the username @mcmoodymoo, found herself laughing as she read some of the comments left by lovestruck blokes.
One person said: “McDamn I would also like to speak to the manager.”
While another added: “Why are Maccies managers so damn fine?”
And a third quipped: “I would stutter a lot and then forget what I was complaining about and then go really red and just walk out.”
Molly later shared a follow-up video in which she called her new followers her “McBuddies”, which left many of her potential suitors disheartened as they joked they’d been “McFriendzoned”.
The woman unfortunately had to defend herself and her friend from some cruel trolls in the comments too, as some people chose to bully Crystal and tell Molly that she was only pretty because of the makeup she was wearing.
She wrote: “1. My makeup has nothing to do with this. 2. I am a shift leader, not Gel. 3. Crystal is one of my girls.”
