Veteran Fox News journalist Bret Baier can now officially add "viral rap star" to his resume.

Video of the "Special Report" anchor rapping along to The Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" went viral online Friday after it was posted by Ashley Moir, a booking producer for Baier's show.


In the video, Baier performs the song's signature chorus alongside members of the group at a party for Fox News staffers celebrating Baier's 10 year anniversary of anchoring the program, according to a Fox News source. Baier is clad in a festive red jacket emblazoned with green Christmas trees while singing words to the 1980 smash hit.

The video had received nearly a half million views within hours of being posted on Twitter.
