Usually when you think about Atlanta celebrities rappers like Gucci Mane come to mind, but one of the most recognisable faces around the city is that of Russell Horning, or The Backpack Kid.

Russell was just a regular kid until he started making videos of himself in his bedroom "flossing" (a dance move he created) with a deadpan expression which quickly went viral.

In this episode of Self Portraits, we spend time with Russell and his crew as they do normal stuff like go to malls, practice new moves and take photos with legions of adoring fans.

Self Portraits is a series supported by ALT, who want to empower you to keep doing you. You can find out more here .
