There is a weird feeling these days in the world – a feeling in which everyone seems to be a tad hesitant about the future. Yet, in recent weeks, the entire country has been given a reason to smile thanks to a farmer by the name of Jay Lavery.

Jay posted a video that showed him showing off some of his dance moves to a song by Sia while doing his chores out in his barn, and since posting it, it has been viewed over 7 million times.

Yet, knowing the story behind his moves makes us love the video even more.

In a recent interview with WGN-TV in Chicago, Jay opened up about a bad accident that he had about 15 years ago, and how he hopes his dance moves will inspire those dealing with such injuries. “I went through everything from panic attacks to everything you can imagine,” he said about a traumatic back injury that caused him to several back surgeries and never-ending back pain. “Anyone who has ever had those problems and then be where I am today – if I can inspire just one person, I’d be very happy.”

Of course, he doesn’t always find time to dance.

“I’ve had to explain over and over again that this is not a daily routine,” Jay laughed. “I actually have 200 animals that expect me to work for them.”
