The duties of a ramp agent are not exactly exciting; that’s why Luu Vailuu decided to spice things up a bit. The 23-year-old resident of Oahu has worked as a ramp agent for Hawaiian Airlines for the past 10 months, and though his normal duties include loading and unloading baggage and directing planes to their gate, he also entertains travelers by dancing on the tarmac.
“Every time I do something I always see a phone sticking out,” he told BuzzFeed News. And indeed, videos of Vailuu dancing have gone viral on social media. This video has nearly 500,000 views.

Another video from March shows a similar routine, with the caption, “This guy needs a raise ASAP. Best arrival ever.”

Vailuu says he learned his dance moves by watching dancers on Instagram and by practicing in his spare time. “When I work out, I just practice it in the mirror at the gym. I wouldn’t have any shame!”
Vailuu’s dream is to become a backup dancer, and this viral fame certainly doesn’t hurt. “I feel blessed,” he said. “I’m just living life and being me.”
