Michael Lavery is a farmer who is now internet famous because of his sweet dance moves.
“Dancing is how I stay warm in the barn and I never know when I’m going to break out into a dance,” Michael Lavery captioned a video of his dance to Sia’s “Cheap Thrills” that he uploaded to Facebook. [Source]
His Facebook video now has over 8 million views and while his dance moves are impressive, his story is also pretty inspiring:
“Fifteen years ago I had a traumatic back injury that caused me to have several back surgeries including a discectomy and a spinal fusion and never ending back pain,” he wrote.
The 50-year-old explained that dancing, along with yoga and meditation, has helped him cope with his back pain without medication.
“I hope this can inspire anyone to move in spite of pain and I hope this puts a smile on your face for the New Year,” he added.
