A tarmac worker has gone viral after a video of him dancing was uploaded to the internet. Jahmaul Allen was captured dancing while he performed his job guiding an airplane just before Christmas.
And you can tell he’s really enjoying himself!
Hey guys check out this piece ABC news did on me https://t.co/KL7VoQUjkt

The video shows the 28-year-old doing a bunny hop and waving his lights around. He ends with a dramatic point in the air. You can hear the couple taking the video laugh at his antics.
It’s so wholesome!
Awww he thought the only people who would see his moves were the passengers, and more specifically, the crying child onboard who he was trying to make smile https://t.co/wVZtp6EaSz

According to ABC, Allen was doing this to try and make a crying child happy.
“I felt like I needed to brighten that child’s life. I just made her smile … so then I continued to dance.”
For those worried, he also explained to that this did not interrupt his job. The flight had a “perfect path” and needed minimal guidance from him.
Which is great, because we could stand to see more of those moves.
Man's got some moves 😂🤣🕺🕺🕺

Dancing isn’t a normal part of the job, but Allen says:
“I would say I do it every now and then, whenever I feel like the mood to dance and whenever I want to make someone happy on the plane.”
Allen has been ecstatic at the reaction to the video. He has fully embraced his dancing reputation and posts about it on Twitter.
And it’s pretty great.
GET ON UP AND DANCE — feeling happy

While he enjoys the fame his internet dancing has brought, his goal is to one day become a pilot. But in the meantime, he’s pretty happy.
“I usually don’t really have an impact on anyone. No one really notices me, so for this to happen, for this to surface — it’s actually a blessing.”
Dance on, you wonderful man.
