Thousands of fans attended a Janet Jackson concert in New York a few weeks ago, but to their surprise, right before the main event, there was an (arguably) even more entertaining impromptu number.

John Lawless was caught on camera dancing the night away and showing off some serious dance skills while boogying to the Jackson 5 hit song “I Want You Back”. This 50-year-old guy and father of two quickly draw the attention of people around him, including someone sitting several rows behind, who filmed him and shared John’s fierce performance to social media.

Not only did the clip go viral on Facebook, with already 42 million views, but it also took over other social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram with over 43 thousand retweets and 82 thousand likes.

“When I go to concerts with my daughter or wife, they don’t really like to let me loose,” John said about his surprisingly new-found fame. Luckily, John attended the concert with his 21-year-old son Kevin, who is, coincidentally, and aspiring dancer.

“It was spectacular,” his son said.

And we beg to agree!
