However, a grandfather and his granddaughter from Tennessee, US overcame this hurdle by having a dance-off from opposite sides of the street.
Marvin and his six-year-old granddaughter Kira captured everybody’s attention after they danced to the popular Jackson 5 song, ABC. During the quarantine period, the six-year-old could not meet her grandfather and came up with this idea.

The clip also received numerous comments from netizens who lauded the relationship between the two.
