A Banbury motorcyclist has become an internet sensation after a video clip of him dancing and exercising at a red light has gone viral.

Kyle Scott’s video, shot on the Warwick Road crossroads by the Three Pigeons pub, has so far been viewed over 600,000 times and shows no signs of slowing down.

Kyle said: “Originally this video was made because a close friend of mine had seen similar videos online as this is becoming a bit of a trend for motorcyclists all over the world. She shared one of them on my Facebook page and said that I should do one so I accepted the challenge.”

Kyle shared the clip with his friends and due to the positive reaction decided to send the video with other outlets online. Facebook page Funny Videos shared it on their page and the views kept rising making Kyle an unlikely star.

Kyle said: “As well as humouring others I also thought it would be nice to distract people from all the negative things that have recently happened in our town and show the world that there is still positivity here.

He added: “ Never in a million years did I think I would be able to make so many people laugh and it is an absolute honour. I have received so many lovely messages from people who were in need of cheering up before they watched the video and have thanked me for doing it.”
