A man who was body-shamed for dancing at a concert is now getting the party of a lifetime after his story went viral this week.

Photos making fun of the “Dancing Man,” as the Internet has dubbed him, first surfaced online last month on message board 4chan. “Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week,” wrote the anonymous user. “He stopped when he saw us laughing.”

This caught the attention of Cassandra Fairbanks, a writer at The Free Thought Project in Los Angeles. She posted the pic on Twitter in an attempt to track down the man in question.

“Anyone know this man or who posted this?” she wrote on Thursday. “There’s a huge group of ladies in LA who would like to do something special.”

Fairbanks’s followers leapt into action to find the Dancing Man.

Twelve hours later, there were more than 11,000 Tweets with the hashtag #FindDancingMan. And they did!

His name is Sean and he lives in London. And as of this moment more than $25,000 has been raised to bring him to LA for an epic dance party.

But that’s not all. Now celebrities are looking to get in on the fun. Both Pharrell Williams and Moby shared their interest in joining the bash.

Looks like it’s going to be the party of the century!
