Daylight Donuts TikTok video goes viral, racks up 13M views and counting


CHESTERFIELD, Mo. – For many donut lovers, there’s nothing better than a freshly glazed donut.

Daylight Donuts in Chesterfield decided to test their customer’s taste buds by showcasing one of life’s sweet pleasures to the sounds of Christmas tunes!

Owner Drew Selman posted a video to TikTok, showing an assemble of donuts hot out the fryer being glazed to Mariah Carey’s famous “All I Want for Christmas Is You”.

The video has since been watched 13.4 million times on TikTok.

“I was very surprised to see all of the followers and views the next morning,” said Selman. We have people all over the world watching our video. One of the most famous duets is two police offers sitting there with their mouths wide open”.

Selman said the shop started posting on TikTok; the popular app that allows users to make and share short video clips, to show people what it is like to make donuts.

“There are videos of me pulling apart the dough, mixing the icing, and doing things around the shop”.

The team plans to add more content throughout the pandemic.

“After Christmas, I think we should set up a live feed and go live from the kitchen. It’s no special secret to making donuts, it just fun”.

He said he wants the videos to excite people and bring in new customers to the shop.

“We offer adult treats, including boozy donuts and milkshakes”, said Selman. We also have a Maple Bacon with Bourbon, and Chocolate Glaze Whisky”.

Daylight Donuts is located at 155 Hilltown Village Center Drive and is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday-Wednesday and from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday-Saturday.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
