I love the comments on the video walk to Alabama campus, including parents with students at Alabama who are glad to see the school their children attend.
As well as the folks that are shocked to find out that you have to pay to park on the campus.
Another video that is exploding with over 1.4 MILLION likes is her "senior formal" video.
@darcymcqueenyyy get ready with me for my SENIOR FORMAL!!!! #college#dateparty#sorority#universityofalabama#collegelife#grwm#getreadywithme#makeuptutorial#makeuproutine#hairroutine#hairtutorial#fyp#grwmroutine#beauty♬ Sunroof - Nicky Youre & dazy
