Backpack Kid has taken the internet – and now the world – by storm.

With his simple yet addictive dance moves, it’s no wonder everyone is following along, and even sometimes learning his moves!

So who is the kid beneath the backpack? Where did he suddenly come from and just how did he gain this overnight fame?

Check out these 30 facts about Backpack Kid!

Katy Perry found his Instagram profile as a recommended page. When she saw he did what he was doing just for fun, she invited him to be on the show with her.

Not only did he dance on stage with Katy Perry, but later appeared in the music video later that year for the same song, “Swish Swish.”

Backpack Kid also made a cameo appearance in the music video for “Rolex” by Ayo & Teo.

After the performance with Katy Perry, the dance move he did on the show became his signature move. He calls it “The Russell,” while some call it “flossing.”

Despite his straight face while performing, Russell says he was extremely nervous to be dancing on T.V. with half the country watching.

Even though “The Russell” was popularized after being on SNL, he first performed it at a summer camp in June 2014.

Russell’s favorite emoji is the laughing face with tears.
