It's an undisputed fact that Missy Elliot's 'Work It' is one hundred per cent of a banger. But it's also a fact that it's a really tricky song to cover.

Not for one super fan, who's completely and utterly owned it.

In a now viral Facebook video, which has been watched more than 7 million times, Mary Halsey, AKA 'Funky White Sister', can be heard covering the track in a word perfect rap.

It wasn't long before the incredible performance came to the legendary singer's attention.

Taking to Twitter, she said:

I just found out I have a FUNKY WHITE SISTER. forreal doe & she brought her home girl with her from da hood that keep tip toeing in the background with a plate of food

yo I’m done!

but she straight killed “Work It” sound effects & all

I love it! 

Needless to say, many other people on Twitter loved Mary's incredible skills on the mic.

Many are showing love for the lady with the noodles who appears at the beginning.

Even Missy loved the noodles action.

Others got their groove on.

For some, it was all too much.

We bow down to you Mary.

What have we learned here today? NEVER underestimate a Missy Elliot fan.
