sam horowitz bar mitzvah dance viral videoSince we posted the video of Sam Horowitz’s bar mitzvah video featuring an elaborate performance with burlesque dancers and Horowitz busting out some pretty impressive dance moves, the kid’s gone totally viral. Like, Good Morning America viral.

GMA chose the bar mitzvah video as their “Play of the Day” and then had him live on the air for an interview this morning. So what’s the story?

The idea for the dance was a combined effort from Sam and his mother, Angela, and the newly-minted man practiced every weekend for three hours for a month to prepare.

You can watch the whole video interview here.

Of note, the article from ABC does include a quote from Sam about the bar mitzvah ceremony itself, saying, “It’s really about the service, and it took two years to prepare for that. It’s a really big milestone in my life and it meant a lot to me, so I’m happy people are enjoying it.”
