If this clip looks familiar, it’s because Famous Amos has gone viral doing a similar shtick before. Often dubbed the #ibetyouwontchallenge, the format is consistent and hilarious: As the opening chords of Mouse On The Track and Level’s “I Bet U Won’t” plays, Amos emerges from an unlikely situation to dance, while his trusty hype man provides impeccable commentary throughout.
