Earlier last month, Ip was recording a video for her Instagram when she was interrupted by her mom calling her to go to dinner. She continued recording, and the finished product is truly a piece of art.

A few weeks later, Ip's video was shared on Twitter, where it went viral with more than 94,000 retweets. It was also shared by several parody accounts such as @Dory.

"I wasn't planning to be interrupted, but I was so done that I just continued the video," Ip told BuzzFeed News.

"I was just gonna say pika pika when I made the video, but the interruption pissed me off so I just wanted to emphasize my point so I said bitch," she said.


Ip said she didn't expect her video to blow up the way it did, as it only went viral after 10 days of her posting it.

She added that every nice comment she's gotten from the video was a favorite.
