This clip of an old guy dancing his heart out has gone down a storm on Vine.

(Hit the volume icon to turn the sound on).

At the time of writing it has been played over 8.5 million times and received 55,000 likes.

The man in the video has since been named as Roger Pollard and it turns out he has a rather incredible Instagram page:

The og_pollard account describes him as "That 'Old White Man' taking over every dance floor in the bay area one at a time".

According to Vibe magazine, most of the dancing videos take place at a San Francisco venue called The End Up.

Pollard is said to be a regular at the Sundaze parties every Sunday.

His videos also show him dancing indoors.

He regularly appears with fellow Instagram user wizzytharuler.

Describing Pollard, wizzytharuler said in one post: "I see no color or age if you coo i fucks with you and he is coo since day 1 we just club dancers that love to have fun."

Some of Pollard's dancing videos involve some full-on grinding.

His videos are now starting to pick up serious attention, and three weeks ago rapper Big Sean shared one.

BuzzFeed News has now spoken to Pollard.

The 61-year-old revealed he owns a construction management firm and has been attending the dance events since August.

He said the people in his videos are close friends, with Wiz and Claudia his favourite dance partners.

"I’ve always loved dancing! HipHop, Salsa, Swing & Lindy Bop," he said.
