An Australian CrossFit fanatic has shown off some his best dancing moves to Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)’, before effortlessly lifting 120kg (264lbs) in a viral video that has ticked over 1.5 million views.
Posting to his Facebook page, Khan Porter says he made the video for a little bit of fun, but to also make a statement about masculinity and mental health.
“I posted my video for fun obviously, but also because l think the way the public reacted reflects a pretty cool shift in preconceived notions of masculinity and think that’s grounds for starting some more positive conversations about what it means to be ‘a man’,” he says.
“A well-known male celebrity (Channing Tatum) goes on national television, dresses in drag and dances to a girls song and the world embraces it with open arms.
“I post a video dancing and it too gets plenty of positive attention, showing a shift in the way society views masculinity or what is acceptable for a man to do or say.”
