Video of worker dancing at Toronto Pearson International Airport goes viral


Jahmaul Allen's maneuvers on the apron at Toronto Pearson International Airport were seen hundreds of thousands of times after an airline passenger recorded him dancing while doing his job as a ramp agent.

"Honestly, I just love what I do," Allen said.

"I love aviation and I love making the passengers happy."

The 28-year-old said he is guiding American Airlines aircraft to their proper gates for three years – and adds that he tries to bring a positive attitude to the job whenever he can.

"I'd say I do it every once in a while whenever I feel like dancing and whenever I want to make someone happy on the plane," Allen said.

He said the dance he was doing on Sunday was because he saw a baby on the plane and was trying to entertain her.

The video was initially recorded and sent to Instagram by @ekaterina_irko, but became viral when it was posted on a popular entertainment page called @ 6ixbuzz in the same social media application. With this post, it was shared with the 725,000 page followers.

"Honestly, I was ecstatic," Allen said. "I was shocked, I did not know it was going to be that big. I'm happy and grateful to have come so far – it's a blessing, to be honest with you."

Allen adds that although he is moving on the asphalt, he is still doing the work of guiding the plane. The pilots, he said, never get mixed up in their dance.

"The flight has a perfect route," Allen said. "He knows where he's going, he knows where he's going to be parked and is not being interrupted by my dance moves."
