Anthony Hanaee, an audacious 11-year-old from Michigan, challenged his father Shawn to a dance-off at his aunt's wedding in Farmington Hills, Michigan last month. Now the laugh-out-loud video has gone viral!
Shawn tells WXYZ Detroit that the spur-of-the-moment battle broke out after the bride asked him to do something to get the crowd going at the reception. His son grabbed the microphone and said, "Listen old man, I heard you used to be a good dancer back in the day...Can everyone please get off the dance floor?" As you can imagine, guests were more than happy to oblige.
Dad busted a move to classic songs including "The Twist," "U Can't Touch This," "Everybody Dance Now," "Tootsee Roll" and "The YMCA." His son took a more modern approach, breaking it down to top hits like "Turn Down For What," "Whip My Hair," "Teach Me How To Dougie," "Gangnam Style," "Single Ladies" and "Soulja Boy."
So who won? You'll have to watch the hysterical video below to find out!
"I held back a little so Anthony could be in the spotlight, because what kind of dad would I be if I didn't," Shawn joked to WXYZ Detroit.
The best part: This adorable father-son duo succeeded in their mission. After they danced to "Sexy and I Know It," the bride and all of her guests joined in on the fun. Talk about being the life of the party!
Tell us: Who do you think was the better dancer? Do you have any special dances planned for your wedding?
