8-Year-Old Boy With Autism Does ‘Thriller’ Dance And The Video Is Going Viral
When it comes to classics, then MJ’s ‘Thriller’ is right there near the top of the list. Just thinking of the title makes the lyrics ring in the back of our heads: “Cause this is thriller, thriller night! And no one’s gonna save you from the beast about to strike!"
Thriller was released back in 1982 and its Halloween-inspired video made its debut on MTV a year later. To this day, it remains one of the most iconic songs and videos in music history. Jackson’s sleek zombie dance moves are just as impressive today as they were decades ago. Need proof? Look no further than this young boy’s rendition of Thriller that’s taking the internet by storm…
You won't believe how this little boy absolutely slays 'Thriller' in this incredibly heartwarming clip. A cottage leasing company put on a webcam contest, asking participants to show off their best dance moves. When 8-year-old William Ryan heard about this, he knew exactly what he had to do: bust a zombie move.
William was diagnosed with autism when he was five years old, He struggled with everything in his short life: communication, learning and making friends, but the one thing he did not struggle with was dancing. When his dad introduced him to the wonder that was Michael Jackson, the boy would watch his videos for hours on end, eventually learning all his dance routines by heart.
Do we have to tell you who won the dancing contest?
