Viral Video Girls Hit ‘Today’ Show With ‘Call Jesus’ Video

“Jesus is very popular these days. I’m so glad.”

Those are the words of Kathie Lee Gifford on Thursday. She and Today co-host Hoda Kotb had just shown a video sweeping up clicks on YouTube.

The video, titled “Dani and Dannah call Jesus,” has been viewed more than 75,000 times — but look for that number to soar now that Gifford and Kotb have given it some air time.

The girls are six- and seven-year-old sisters, according to their website. “Dani and Dannah Lockett are adorable and hilariously precocious sisters who have Mississippi ties but now live in Atlanta.”

“There’s a lot of things going on in the world. Here’s some advice — call Jesus!” Dani (or Dannah, we don’t know which), says in the new video. The girls go on to list a lot of woes — including “If you’re boyfriend breaks up with you,” and offer some simple words of advice.
