She said she made the video because she thought her friends might find it funny, and didn't expect such a huge reaction on social media.
"When I woke up one morning and it had almost nine million views, it felt like a dream," she said.
The artists behind the tune, Daryl Hall and John Oates, even replied to Gould's video, saying her extensive moves were "impressive."
Impressive you can dance that long!

Gould added that she had been having a rough day before she started dancing, and that she did so just to pass the time.
"All I wanted to do was get home and be in my bed, and I was like you know what, I can either sit here and wallow, or I could do something that I think is fun to pass the time," she said.
Gould, who is studying sports law in college, also said she hopes that she can make broadcasting connections thanks to her viral video.
"Really it's just been a [positive] all the way," she said.
