A roller skater who went viral earlier this month has been in the limelight before as well for his unique dance moves. The roller skater Juan Carlos Restrepo appears on footpaths in a short TikTok clip which has been viewed over 5 million times on Twitter alone. Netizens meanwhile are reacting hilariously to his dance moves.
In the video, Juan Carlos Restrepo appears on the footpath in a TikTok Clip where he breaks into his dance moves for passengers in a car who whistle and shout to spin it out. A person shouts “Eat your heart out Tonya Harding.” as Juan dances across the footpath. It may be by happenstance but it actually is a long-time hobby for Mr Carlos who is in his 50s and barely uses his last name as per reports. Carlos has been entertaining drivers with his rollerblading skills in Houston apparently for more than 15 years now at the same signal crossing.

Reports suggested that in 2014, he even made a television debut on America's Got Talent. Howard Stern who was the judge at that time awarded him unofficially for the best entrance when he performed on Nancy Sinatra's “These Boots Are Made for Walkin” in a red suit. Carlos made it till quarterfinals before elimination.
Meanwhile Netizens have reacted to the video which has already amassed over 5.5 million views at the time of publication.
