PHILADELPHIA (PIX11) — The staff and patients at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia are “shaking it off” this month in honor of Child Life Month.

The hospital posted the hilarious lip-sync video to YouTube showing off their dance moves on Thursday. Towards the end of the song, the staff even added their own verse in about the hospital including the teachers, arts and therapy dogs. The video ends the staff dancing and a sign reading “Happy Child Life Month.”

“Our incredible team of Child Life Specialists, Child Activity Coordinators, Music and Art Therapists, teachers and dedicated volunteers have created something really special and fun to celebrate and spread awareness for ‪#‎ChildLifeMonth‬!” the hospital posted with the video.

The video went viral with over 150,000 views on YouTube.

According to Childlife.org, the primary focus of Child Life Month is to “celebrate, honor and promote awareness and understanding of the child life profession, while educating others about the needs of children and families under stress.”
