First it was Left Shark and now Katy Perry’s latest viral sensation is “Backpack Kid.”
While Katy Perry performed her latest single “Swish Swish” on Saturday Night Live last weekend, everyone watching had one big question – “Who’s that kid with the backpack?”
Towards the end of her performance, after a number of backup dancers had already emerged onstage, a teenage kid sporting a backpack named Russell Horning walked out and stole the show with his dance moves.
His emergence during the performance was similar to that of Left Shark, who stole the show during Katy Perry’s halftime performance at Super Bowl XLIX in 2015.
Perry took a shot at attempting Horning’s dance move backstage. Unfortunately, the 32-year-old artist could not quite get the move down as can be seen in the video Horning, who has over 550k followers, posted on Instagram.
