  • We’ve all dressed our children up in funny costumes at times, but one YouTube video has gone a step further and dressed up babies as iconic figures in history.

    The video starts with two babies appearing, one dressed as well-known artist Bob Ross, complete with afro, stubble and paintbrush. Beside him is a little girl dressed as Queen Elizabeth in a cream dress, wig and – of course – a crown. 

    The funny YouTube clip comes from HelloDenizen, who are famous for creating videos about animals, such as tiny hamsters eating tiny burritos.

    The babies play up to their likeness to the famous faces as the Bob Ross look-a-like does some painting and Queen Elizabeth plays with her ‘diamond encrusted’ brush.

    Next up is African America social reformer Fredrick Douglass with the baby dressed in a huge afro and tux. But the baby seems unaware of his status as a political figure as he crawls around in his formal attire.

    Baby Beethoven looks a little happier to be wearing a mad wig as he claps his hands and giggles at what’s going on around him. Eccentric American fashion designer Iris Apfel is also mocked up using colourful clothes, white sunglasses and colouful necklaces. And iconic American musician Willie Nelson is shown next to a guitar, with an American bandana on, drinking his milk from a bottle.

    The end of the video also shows just how hard it is to work with children, as the babies take their wigs off in the middle of the shoot and crawl away from the camera.

    The video, which was shared on YouTube on Tuesday has been watched by nearly 17,000 and people have commented suggestions for the next videos too, such as: ‘I would love to see Princess Charlotte dressed up as her Grandmother the Queen.’

    What iconic person do you think they should do next?SaveSave
