I've seen a lot of men with mustaches, but until today, I had never seen a man who could make his mustache dance. In several videos released by the prank group Whatever, a man named Clydesdale shows off his creative trick of making his mustache boogie.

The pranksters said they were on their way back from filming one of their pranks when they met Clydesdale for the first time.

After the initial video went viral, with more than 1.8 million views to date, the guys of Whatever wanted to show their appreciation for the man who got them to over 100,000 subscribers for their YouTube channel. So they started a crowdsourcing campaign on Indiegogo to raise $3,000 to give to Clydesdale. For one month, the group posted follow-up videos featuring the rising star and even threw in $300 of their own money. There was only one thing left to do: Give the money to Clydesdale in person. In addition to the cash, the group gave him a gift certificate and some clothing -- including a T-shirt that reads, "My Moustache Can Boogie."

Clydesdale's stunned reaction is priceless. He says, "You gotta be kidding me. Oh my word. I'm really speechless." He adds, "Thank you everybody. Thanks for giving me a spark in life." And fittingly, he wiggles his mustache in appreciation of the group's kindness.

Commenters on YouTube applauded Whatever's gesture, with one person writing, "That was very sweet. I hope I can make someone feel this way one day." Let's hope the man with the dancing mustache can use this to get back on his dancing feet.
