It's like he was waiting his whole life for this very moment.

When the word “TikTok” is mentioned, most guys and girls automatically think of short clips of people dancing. There are thousands of those on the app, ranging from actual talent to a few more questionable ones.

It’s all in good fun since anyone with a phone can do it from anywhere. Pick a spot, a song, and a set of moves and off you go.

This woman was prepared to do the same.

She’s picked a lovely spot where the sun shines and it’s just green and blue behind her. Nothing says “view me” quite like having a couple of massive giraffes in the background.

She’s definitely prepared judging by the way she’s positioned her camera and how she sets herself in position.

It’s going to be her 30 seconds of fame if this dance goes viral but the towering animal behind her had other ideas. It’s like that giraffe has been waiting its whole life for a chance.

And he took it.

The world’s tallest mammal knew the camera was just about the right height for him to expose his face for all the world to see, and he did just that, completely taking over the supposed dance scene.

You can see the curious mammal look at the woman as she begins her dance before he makes his way over slowly until his near 20-foot frame blocks the woman, who now looks tiny next to him.

The giraffe pauses a bit, prompting the woman to point at him in a posing manner, like how show hosts gesture towards their guests. Almost like an NBA reporter featuring a team’s center.

She then tries to proceed with her dancing, but the giraffe knew it was his moment so he walks over, his massive head completely covering the shot. She’s got nothing else to do but laugh.

Giraffa camelopardalis is the name.

With a lifespan of around 25 years and the ability to grow to a max of 20 feet, these animals can enjoy a long life of fame for sure. They can stand and graze all day or roam open grassland on their free time.

Long, long legs allow giraffes to run up to 35 miles an hour over short distances. When traveling long distances, that long stride allows them to maintain a steady 10. Like those luxury SUVs.

The giraffe says hi to viewers before planting a nose kiss on the woman’s phone, and really, it’s a way cuter moment than the average dancing normally seen on the app.

She has no choice but to walk over, giggling to herself before she shuts her phone off.

Thanks to her extremely tall friend, her 30 second video, just 2-days old, now has 11,919 views on YouTube.

I get the feeling she’ll be doing more dance attempts near or around other animals. It could be a new trend and she’s started it without even knowing the potential for viewer engagement.

That’s a tall order for a dance! Say hello to the TikTok giraffe below!
