This video of a six-year-old boy putting on an impressive Great Wall performance has been making the rounds on social media and has netizens crowning him as China’s young Marquese Scott. Warning: watch this clip only if you’re prepared to feel utterly inadequate and really old.
Because we are young and fully versed in all that is pop culture, we did not have to Google search Marquese Scott to learn that he is an American animation dancer who’s appeared on a number of talk shows, advertisements and live performances, and who rose to popularity with popping dance. We also know that popping is a funk-style street dance incorporating the tensing and relaxing of one’s muscles to create jerk-like motions. You can watch a performance by Scott here.
