The dancing man cooking chicken delights crowds at Taste of the Danforth

One man in Toronto just took the meaning of the words "chicken dance" to a whole new level. 

Rotating spits of chicken and people dancing are familiar sights at Taste of the Danforth, but not always together. One chef cooking outside was not only feeding the masses, he also entertained them with his joyful dancing.

Of course, it wasn’t long before the many passersby whipped out their phones and started snapping pics and videos of the dancing chef.

He was stationed under a banner for Athens Restaurant.

Athens Restaurant was reached for comment, but was unable to identify the dancing chef in question in time. Whoever you are, keep dancing like nobody is watching (and cooking that delicious chicken).
