Kid Becomes Viral Sensation For Doing The Worm Behind CNN's Jim Acosta During Trump Rally


You're stuck at an event, young and probably bored.

What can you do?

There's always busting out your best dance moves in the background of a live broadcast.

That's what one young attendee of a recent MAGA rally for President Donald Trump did.

While CNN correspondent Jim Acosta was busy looking at documents in front of him, a figure appeared behind his left shoulder. Inching across the floor, the young person did their interpretation of an inchworm.


Called the worm, the dance move got popular during break dancing's street performance days way back in the 1980s. But it actually came from the funk music club scene of the 1970s.

And it's harder than it looks.

But this kid nailed it. Even Acosta gave him props.

Canada's CTV News Washington correspondent Richard Madan shared the video on Twitter. The clip has over 2 million views.

Madan called the impromptu performance "the best thing I've seen today."

Others made their own observations.

Although people wondered if it really was a kid laying down some dance moves.

Could it be something or someone else?

Whoever it was, people wanted to get them on camera.

At the very least, they could provide a few dance lessons.

It will give the press corps something to do now that the daily White House briefing is extinct.

Can't wait for the follow-up interview? The DVD set Learn To Hip Hop Collection: Volume 1, 2 & 3 - Featuring Shane Sparks is available here.

Historians have a frustrating job, presumably because there are so many people out there who seem pretty intent on repeating our history... which sort of goes against the very point in the first place.

If the walls are thin... all information is fair game. The secrets that are exposed, the lies uncovered, the heartache, the joy..... heck, things we can listen from our neighbor's lives can be better than any telenovela. So many buildings are built so paper thin (thank you slumlords of NYC) that listening is unavoidable. And Lord do the neighbors have issues.

Food, like art, is objective. What we all feel in our mouths is a private thought. Our bodies are chemically defined in so many ways. How we indulge in taste is our our journey. However... somethings don't belong together. Like, it's total revolt against humanity. And pizza is the basic food life force. Don't get crazy with pizza... pizza is beautiful already.

Weddings are an emotional day for everyone involved. With so many different emotions in the air, ranging from happiness to queasiness to, you can bet something is sure to go wrong. By "wrong," of course, we talk about the moment when a priest or pastor asks if anyone has any objections to the union of the two people and someone feels inclined to say, "I object!"
