He turned to the camera with an annoyed sigh and remarked to the cameraman, "That’s my mom. Hold on,".

A black car then rolls up with the window down and Harris’s mother greets him with an enthusiastic shout: "Hi, baby!"

"I’m trying to work right now!" Harris responds before his mother and the cameraman – and eventually Harris himself – burst into laughter.

The TV station's video quickly went viral after being picked up by social media video accounts.

"Don't be holding up traffic, because you've got cars behind you," Harris tells his mother at the end of the video.

His mother responds with a "alright" and a kiss before driving away out of view.
