SOUTH PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) —
Your feel-good moment of the day comes courtesy of an epic dance-off that’s become a bit of a thing at Philadelphia 76ers games.
Fans on Twitter said in the 4th quarter, the same two kids, 10-year-old Dominic Prybella and 9-year-old Anthony Stuard, get in a dance off from across the stadium.
And it happens a lot.
The crowd loved it, and so did the NBA– tweeting the boys’ jumbotron competition for all of the internet to see.
They’ve become a viral sensation, with 2 million views of the video of their dance battle, and counting.
The boys have actually dueled many times across the arena, but they have never sat down face-to-face and talked until now.
And they both say since Monday night, it has been a whirlwind.
“At my school, my friend saw on the news and he said ‘There’s this kid that was on the Sixers game and he looks just like you. I can’t believe he took his shirt off.’ I was like ‘That’s exactly me,'” said Anthony.
Oh yes- the shirts came off, with mixed reviews from their parents.
“All of a sudden Dominic took his shirt off which he’s done before so I was OK with that. I wasn’t surprised. They kept dancing. Then all of a sudden Anthony starts pulling his arms out and I didn’t know what to do! I wanted to cover him up!” said Anthony’s mom, Toni Stuard.
The parents say they never expected this, but they love that the Sixers give their kids a chance to shine.
