The Latino Behind One of the Earliest Viral Clips on the Internet
Remember the classic viral video featuring an unassuming kid who starts dancing at a talent show…
And blows everyone away with his moves?
And just when people thought he couldn’t blow their minds any further…
He kept going and going!
Well, his name is David Bernal. He also goes by the name David Elsewhere.

A California native, Bernal was born to a Peruvian mother and father from New Mexico.
After the video went viral, Elsewhere lined up several high-profile gigs. Remember this iTunes commercial?

He was also in a Heineken commercial where he played not only himself…
But everyone else who dances in the spot.
Yep, they just superimposed the other actors’ heads on his body.
A few years ago, Elsewhere spoke to ABC News about how that viral clip changed his life.
He breaks down the details of performance and reveals what his father initially thought about his desire to become a professional dancer (Spoiler: He wasn’t happy about it).
