Justin and Wendy Hill drove their family home to Utah from Montana over Memorial Day weekend. Little did they know, their daughter Elisabeth was making the most of the long drive by filming a lip-synced music video in the back seat.

This video now has almost 230,000 views and over 1,400 shares on Facebook.

“During a 10-hour car drive yesterday, my normally reserved second child created this video, lip-syncing to ‘One Day More’ from 'Les Miserables,'” according to the description below the YouTube video.

Not only did Elisabeth film herself mouthing the words, but she also changed her hair, her facial expressions and the filters on her iPod to match the different characters — and her family had no idea what she was doing.

“I guess I should be more aware of what’s going on inside the car, but only once I caught a sheepish grin from her while she was holding her iPod,” Justin Hill said in a article. “Her little brother claims he noticed something going on, but they look pretty oblivious in the backgrounds.”
