This weekend at Avalon in Hollywood, Dancing Man finally got the party he deserved. You maybe remember that back in March a photo surfaced of him online while dancing, posted on 4chan and with the intention of shaming his moves and figure. Many did not find this so much, and quickly acted to find the man and throw him a party in LA.
47-year-old Sean O'Brien has now become an Internet legend so to speak, originally the target of online bullying and now a hero to many who respect his dancing ways. Over a 1,000 people attended the event, including performances from Moby and Pharrell. Beyond that, celebrity guests and other musicians including Andrew W.K. and Monica Lewinsky showed up.
O'Brien also recently appeared on The Today Show and danced alongside Megan Trainor, and threw out the first pitch at a Dodgers game. First down an out, and now an inspiration to countless people. Anyone should be able to express themselves through dance, and now O'Brien's experience proves that there are still good people out there willing to land a helping hand to those in need.
In LA werd zaterdag het beloofde feest gegeven voor de gepeste dikke 'dancing man' Sean O'Brien uit Engeland. Alles was voor hem geregeld en betaald: vliegticket, hotel én het feest. Waar niemand minder dan Moby de plaatjes draaide. #rtlnieuws #nieuws #dancingman #seanobrien #dancingmanfound #theavalon #la #newsoftheday #vidoftheday #videooftheday #news
