Spider-Man has saved a lot of people with his powers, but he really shines when he gets on the dance floor.
Although with sweet dance moves like that, you’d imagine his family would be overcome with pride.
Twitter was certainly impressed.

Although sometimes he has to go shopping just like the rest of us.
It’s interesting that he’s wearing a different Spidey costume in the shopping video. Does he just have a different suit for shopping day, or are we dealing with a new Clone Saga?
Whoever this kid is, he’s following in a proud tradition of dancing Spider-Men.
There is, of course, the classic GIF that was first posted to the London-based blog “Pants On Head” in June of 2002:
And who can forget Tobey Maguire’s somewhat baffling dance scene from Spiderman 3?
In 2015, a group of Spideys formed a Soul Train-esque dance line at Wintercon in New York.
In 2016, a group of web-heads attending Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con created a video where they danced to an electronic version of the Ah-ha’s “Take on Me.”
Somehow the song seemed like the perfect accompaniment for superhero dancing. It inspired both a Batman and a Pokémon version, among others.
For some reason, the internet just can’t get enough of dancing Spidey. You can see him dancing with Darth Maul and Mary Jane.
…and having dance-offs with Storm Troopers.
And, of course, with Deadpool.
Maybe it’s about Peter Parker being a teenager, maybe it’s the form-fitting costume, maybe it’s his scientifically enhanced super agility, but there’s just something about Spider-Man that makes people want to see him dance. Naturally, your friendly neighborhood web-slinger is happy to oblige. After all, with great moves comes great responsibility.
