I’m not sure if going viral is really that great, despite how many people out there are desperate for fame. I suppose it all depends on what you go viral for and if you’re OK with it and if you’re not – like Kim Kardashian – then if you’re able to harness its popularity into something you are.

One person who definitely isn’t doing either of these things though is the Scottish mother from that classic clip from about five years ago. If you clicked on this article then you probably know what I’m talking about, but if you just did it out of curiosity then take a look at the clip below before reading any further.
Trust me – you’re in for a treat. To be honest most of you are probably gonna wanna watch it again anyway aren’t you, so I’ll just wait down there at the bottom of the video for you.
All caught up on that then? Good. Maybe watch it one more time if you want.
Anyway, the woman in that video 39 year old Lizzie Brash is apparently still getting shit for this everywhere she goes, even though it was five years ago. This is what an unnamed friend of hers told The Scottish Sun:
Lizzie had no idea she’d been filmed, let alone that it would end up online. Lizzie is mortified by the whole thing.
People began to recognise Lizzie and the kids when they were out.
She would be in Tesco and people would shout, ‘Disgustin!’. Workies would be hanging out their vans shouting at them too.
The girls get it all the time from other kids at school. It’s relentless.
Even when they were on holiday in Scarborough, folk were shouting the catchphrases.
She and the girls are pretty recognisable with their big red hair.
Damn that sounds pretty testing for the family. Maybe Lizzie should dye her hair or change her hairstyle to get away from it. Or start some kind of comedy YouTube account with her kids that always ends with her yelling ‘disgustin!’ Or sell some t-shirts or something. The key to these kinds of situations is to own them, and it doesn’t sound like she’s doing that at all right now.
