Post Malone’s new music video for “Wow.” features an unforgettable face.
Mike Alancourt, 43, hit headlines after a clip of him dancing to the Post Malone track did the rounds online. The video has since been seen by over 23 million people. Alancourt performed the routine on an episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” earlier this week alongside two backing dancers.
Alancourt told the host, “Part of the initial impetus, a lot of people thought I was 60, I’m only 43, but honestly I just love dancing so much… I had such a good time in the video and I think that’s what people were connecting to and, apparently, 23 million people just wanted to have a good time with me.”
DeGeneres then showed Alancourt a clip of Post Malone inviting him to his Arizona gig.
Alancourt’s whirlwind week was far from over. Malone released the official music video for “Wow.” on Tuesday and Alancourt had a serious part in it. The viral star’s inclusion was not limited to a simple cameo. Alancourt was heavily featured in the latter half of the music video, dancing in multiple scenes and onstage during a Malone concert.
“Wow.” was released on Christmas Eve and has been an international hit. It cracked the top-5 charts in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Slovakia, Sweden, U.K., and the U.S.
