Mike Alancourt found internet fame through a clip of him dancing to Malone's 'Wow'
A bearded man who went viral after a video of him dancing to Post Malone’s ‘Wow’ found internet fame has been surprised by the rapper himself.
Mike Alancourt gained internet notoriety for the clip, which showed off his impressive dance skills. Comments on the initial Instagram post by ‘1vibe Dance studio’ hailed him as “a star” and said he had the “best moves in the game right now.”
Alancourt was invited on to The Ellen Show this week after becoming an internet sensation, where he performed his routine while accompanied by two backing dancers. Afterwards, host Ellen DeGeneres directed his attention towards a screen showing a video message from Malone himself.
“Hey Mike, it’s Posty,” he said. “I love your moves and you kick ass. I’d like to invite you out to my show in Arizona this Saturday.” Watch the full segment below.
Malone responded by calling him a “nerd” and appeared to offer to let Yelawolf’s band join him when they wanted to “play some actual good music.”
The ‘Beerbongs and Bentleys’ rapper rapped up his latest UK and Europe tour last week (March 14), with two shows at London’s The O2. Reviewing the first night, NME wrote: “Whether you believe Malone’s started-from-the-bottom spin or not, the night does have the feeling of a victory lap or a celebratory party. In a world where escapism is needed more than ever, a Post Malone show undoubtedly provides that.”
