WATCH: Airport worker dances his way down tarmac

- An airport worker using the tarmac as a dance floor is bringing joy to the internet.

Rochester, New York native Kyran Ashford works with Southwest Airlines through JetStream Ground Services, the Democrat & Chronicle reports. He acts as a gate attendant for the airline, scanning boarding passes, as well as a ramp agent where he directs airplanes in and out of gates. But he adds some much needed pizazz to these tasks.

"So this just happened out my window as I was leaving New York headed back home to Nashville," Terry McBride posted on Facebook. The video shows Ashford boogying down the tarmac directing the plane and waving his bright orange safety wands, marching, waving and finally, bowing to the passengers as he wraps up his dance moves.

The video has been viewed more than five million times and Ashford told the Democrat & Chronicle he is overwhelmed by the support and feedback he's received from the viral video.

He says he tries to give at least one passenger “30 seconds of positive vibes” before they get on their plane. "You don’t know why these people are flying out ... they could be going to a funeral," he said.

"Everything I’ve been doing, that’s all a part of who I am," said Ashford. "My mother raised me to be the type of man to walk around with great character, and to never be ashamed of who they are."
