A video of a pair of dueling, dancing American priests studying in Rome has gone viral.
Although the video was posted on YouTube in April, by journalist Joan Lewis, it has just attracted the attention of Internet users.
“All of a sudden the numbers started rising and rising,” Lewis told the Associated Press this week. The video has more than 260,000 views.
They were filmed during a fundraiser at the North American College in Italy.
While David Rider won the crowd with his unbelievably smooth tap-dancing, John Gibson brought the house down with his aggressive Irish step dance.
The video ends with a much-deserved standing ovation from the cheering crowd.
The online success of Rider, from Hyde Park, New York, and Gibson, of Milwaukee, has drawn comparisons to “the Singing Nun” – Sister Cristina Scuccia, who won the Italian edition of The Voice as well as a record deal.
