Ex-basketball pro Stephen Jackson, who has been campaigning for justice on behalf of his longtime friend, is seen holding Floyd's daughter with her arms outstretched.
From high up on Jackson's shoulders, Gigi proudly declares "Daddy changed the world!"
'DADDY CHANGED THE WORLD'
The video was posted to Jackson's Instagram account and is captioned: "That’s right GiGi, Daddy changed the world, George Floyd the name of change."
The former NBA star has been vocal about his friendship with George, often referring to him as "twin" in his social media posts and vowing to get justice.
Another post shows Jackson giving Gianna a piggyback and reads: "Don’t worry Twin on my soul I got GiGi. Know dat. I am my brothers keeper and I got a lot of brothers. #justiceforgeorgefloyd."
Yesterday Gianna's mum spoke out about her grief over her former partner's death, saying their six-year-old child will never be walked down the aisle by her father.
"He was a good man," said Roxie Washington, in a news conference in Minneapolis on Tuesday. "I'm here for my baby and I'm here for George because I want justice."
Gianna stood by her mother, who choked back tears as she demanded justice for the 46-year-old, who died during an arrest last week.
"I don't have a lot to say, I can't get the words together right now. I want everyone to know that this is what those officers took from me," she said, referencing their daughter.
"At the end of the day, they get to go home and be with their families. Gianna does not have a father. He will never see her grow up, graduate, he will never walk her down the aisle.
"If there's a problem and she needs her dad, she does not have that anymore."
Floyd's friend Stephen Jackson, also spoke.
"It really don't make no sense. We all seen it plain as day," he said, referring to the officer's delayed arrest - and the fact that the other three cops present at Floyd's arrest remain free.

Tens of thousands of people have been protesting the death of Floyd across the US.
He died on May 25 after being arrested for trying to use a fake $20 bill to buy cigarettes.
While in police custody, Chauvin held his knee on Floyd's neck for nearly nine minutes — while Floyd repeatedly said he couldn't breathe.
He soon died, and his death was determined on Monday to be a homicide following a second, independent autopsy.
