The British singer who made it big with her hit Kids in America has gone viral on YouTube after she serenaded train commuters with the song.

Kim Wilde belts out Kids in America while her brother Ricky plays guitar. She follows it with a rendition of Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree and seems to be having a jolly good time with a pair of costume antlers on her head.

The video had over 1.4 million views on Tuesday morning. Wilde has worked as a landscape gardener, author, and TV host since the height of her musical fame in the '80s, according to her website.

Despite describing herself on Twitter as "somewhat over refreshed," the comments suggest her drunken performance is earning more Christmas cheer than criticism.
