Some boys enter manhood with a bang.
Sam Horowitz entered manhood with a pop! Six! Squish! Uh uh, Cicero, Lipschitz!
The Dallas native celebrated his bar mitzvah last November and transformed the Omni Hotel into a scene from Burlesque, all culminating in what Jewish parenting site Kveller has described as "the craziest bar mitzvah video I, and likely you, have ever, ever seen."
Which may actually be an understatement: It starts with eight burlesque dancers doing a Christina Aguilera number from the movie, then Sam arrives in all his bedazzled glory to the musical stylings of "Dance Again" by Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull and the whole thing climaxes with a confetti dance party.
The entire time Sam is smiling so large that at one point you wonder if he's going to spontaneously combust and turn into confetti himself.
Sam and his mother, Angela Horowitz, appeared on Good Morning America today to perform his routine again and talk about inspired the viral sensation.
"At a very young age, I took him to his first concert,' she explained. "The performers came down from the ceiling in chandeliers and he turned to me and said, 'Mom, I'm gonna do that for my bar mitzvah entrance.'"
As for learning the routine, Sam recalls, "I would rehearse every Sunday for a month for three hours with my very good choreographer."
But it was worth it:
"Oh my gosh, it was so fun," Sam gushed. "I tell everyone, my bar mitzvah was the best day of my entire life."
Your bar mitzvah was the best day of our entire life too, Sam.
