She says her son has gotten a kick out of the video. She says he watches it over and over, but she says her daughter is over the all the hype.

Valsvik says she is good friends with photojournalist Craig Norkus and that they had practiced what they were going to do at Union Restaurant in Minneapolis beforehand. She says there are no hard feelings.

The live shot was being aired under the retractable roof of the Union Restaurant in Minneapolis.
