One day, farmer Jay Lavery decided to open up and share a small secret with the rest of the world that only his close friends and family knew about. That small secret? Jay has some pretty hilarious dancing skills and loves busting out a move at his farm in Sharon Springs, New York.
Jay recorded a video and at first, he just cleans up one of his sheds yet when the famous melody “Shoddy Thrills” from Sia began to hit, Jay changed into a dancing machine. The video of the Jay dancing has been seen more than 11 million times and shared by almost 100k social media users. Jay would now be able to legitimately call himself a viral superstar.
The man suffers from health issues due to an injury he sustained over fifteen years ago. Jay has been through multiple surgeries and still has tremendous back pain that never ends. Jay says that dancing is one of the alternatives to painkillers and hopes to inspire others to keep on moving with his video.

“I realized I really loved being out in the middle of farm country, so that’s when I made this huge crazy leap,” the proud man said.
What a fun dance performance!
