When Katie Stauffer, first posted a conversation between her two-year-old twin daughters, she probably never thought that it would turn her world dramatically.
It was simply a case of innocent child conversation leading into a sequence of events that finally placed fame and fortune on them and their family.
The video conversation recorded by their 14-year-old sister Kaitlin in summer has been viewed over 4 million times, catching the eye of marketers and big corporations among them Walmart, Rental Car, Amazon and Macy’s.
The twin sisters, Mila and Emma, are basically fantasizing about what they would like to be when they grow up.
At first, they seem to be going through the possibility of one making a good teacher while the other one would be a doctor. Emma says that she would like to be a teacher, but Mila quickly reminds her that she hates kids, to which she reluctantly agrees. With a good measure of humor, the kids go through a series of other possible careers including an engineer, an actress, and even a builder, each time carefully highlighting the pros and cons of each profession.
Looking at the global reaction to this video, several things come to mind. Children exposure and the negative and positive possibilities it presents them in life is one of them. Agreeably, these kids from Phoenix have a world that is well open for them to learn of what the world out there holds. At the thought of making a career as builders, Emma says to her sister that it would be “too sweaty for us.”
Such enlightenment on two-year-olds does not always make it to the big screen but the kids are now well on their way to it as several contracts are placed under their parent’s choices lists.
Declining to reveal how much the deals have amounted to, Stauffer said that they have been very lucrative. She has since left her job as an escrow worker to engage in her new task handling the twins.
