A wonderful video of the song a boy used to come out to his mother has gone viral.

Ally Shepherd tweeted a clip of the message her brother, Ben, sent to their mum in 2015 on Sunday (January 6).

In the clip, Texas native Ben repeatedly sings, “Mum I’m gay / LOL luv u / Don’t tell dad,” in the style of The Black Eyed Peas‘ hit song “Boom Boom Pow.”

Sister Ally shared the song and wrote: “y’all… this is how my little brother came out to my mom in 2015 & I’ve still got it stuck in my head.”

The coming out song was produced using Ditty, an app which “sings anything you text.”

Ally, who lives in Kapolei, Hawaii, has attracted more than 275,000 retweets and likes with the tweet.

She was quick to clarify that “for those concerned, our dad does know now and everything is all good.”

He added that he didn’t see it coming, saying: “HAHAHA never thought my coming out video would blow up.”
