Brandon Williams' dance moves in Ravens' locker room becomes viral video hit

8/11/2015

OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Nose tackle Brandon Williams first showed off his freakish athleticism on video when he filmed himself walking on his hands at the Senior Bowl a couple of years ago. The 335-pound starting lineman from the Baltimore Ravens took it another level this week, when a 15-second clip of Williams dancing to Steve Aoki's "Boneless" went viral on social media.

Williams busted out some moves in an impromptu dance party inside the Ravens' locker room before a training camp practice. While the video included linebacker Terrell Suggs and defensive end Lawrence Guy, Williams was the one who stole the show with a performance that seemed to blend hip hop with a weird form of exercise. The fact he was able to do so in full pads made it even more impressive.

"It was the dog days of training camp, some music came on and you start getting hyped," Williams said. "You got to make it fun and you got to love what you do."

Williams said he knew it was being filmed by teammate Chris Canty, and it was going to get posted on social media. He didn't expect this type of response.

The video has been shared on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram more than 50,000 times. The Rockettes' official Twitter account retweeted Williams:

"I was watching the Rockettes since was I little kid on Christmas," Williams said. "So, I was like 'wow' when they tweeted me."


Williams said he doesn't have a name for the dance and is open for suggestions.


"I never knew me dancing and having fun around the locker room with Suggs and Lawrence Guy would be so crazy," Williams said.
