A United States couple have become YouTube darlings after fervently embracing a television prank and belting out karaoke hits at the petrol pump.

Bartender Will Sims was filling up at an LA petrol pump when the television screen above the pump began talking to him.

It was Tonight Show staple Tim Stack, who managed to coax Sims (although it wasn't difficult) into giving a spirited rendition of Bon Jovi's Living on a Prayer.

His wife Monifa, in the car in hysterics, eventually joins in with an animated performance of Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics, with backing vocals from her husband.

Aside from being great sports, the pair come across as an incredibly tight couple who know how to have fun.

Their impromptu audition paid off, with a guest spot on the Tonight Show.

Speaking with host Jay Leno, they revealed they had been married for 12 years and had an 11-year-old daughter.

Check out the video - it's been shared millions of times on Facebook and viewed nearly five and a half million times on YouTube.

It's gone viral for a reason - it will bring a smile to your face.
