YouTube star recreates viral Vogue video at gay bar
02 October 2012

A man who became a YouTube hit after uploading a film of himself dancing to Vogue at his Bar Mitzvah is striking a pose again to celebrate the viral video’s 20th anniversary.

Over one million people have watched Shaun Sperling’s video, which shows the young man proving his manhood by dancing to Madonna’s gay anthem Vogue at his Bar Mitzvah in 1992.

Now all grown up, the 33-year-old has recreated his viral hit at popular gay night spot Mary’s Attic in Chicago.

This time, however, Sperling has a little help from a couple of oiled, buff backing dancers.

Sperling says he decided to relive the magic of his Jewish coming of age party in order to raise money for youth charity UCAN.

Watch Sperling Vogueing now and 20 years ago below:
