It’s “just another service provided by your friendly neighborhood” as one character would always say.

There are those people who just want to make other people’s day with simple acts and gifts.

One such man is someone we’d all recognize even if he’s masked.

Red and blue suit with streaks of black patterned in a web – we all know who that is and we sure are happy to see him being one with the community.

In the cosmetics section of Target, something great was about to happen.

Iconic superhero Spider-man marches through the aisles and chooses an aptly roomy spot inside the supermart.

With him is a red boom box that matches his clothes and a letterman to show off some style.

At first, there were only two people behind him. But it’s also obvious that they weren’t really there for the show but stayed anyway when he started busting some smooth shuffling.

Michael Jackson’s always a hit.

As Michael Jackson’s funky “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’” sounded off, people got more curious.

Suddenly, kids and parents hurriedly emerged from the other aisles and congregated around this mysterious dancer.

If it was because of the music or someone else screaming that Spider-man is dancing, we’ll never know. After a while, phones are coming up to record what was happening.

A man even stopped in his tracks and leaned on a shelf to watch the iconic hero bust a groove.

But what is an impromptu show if there’s no audience interaction? After all, he is everyone’s favorite neighbor.

The Lasso

At first he “lassoed” an old woman and mimed pulling himself towards her.

The pleasantly surprised but embarrassed woman looked away laughing when Spider-man danced in front of her.

Then, he walked around the dance area and greeted the children. He even waved to say hello, much to the delight of the little audience members.

The masked dancer is YouTube content creator Ghetto Spider. His YouTube account alone has amassed over 400,000 followers.

He is just a hundred thousand shy of having a million followers on Instagram and over 150,000 subscribers on TikTok.

His videos include pranking or various collaborations with other creators but he’s well known for doing one-man flash mobs on stores, subways, parking areas, or on a random street.

Even if people are starting to clog the aisles, no one seemed to mind. People are either peeping behind the shelves or standing right behind the masked dancer.

He was definitely worth watching.

While he can’t do the hero’s usual web-slinging and crime-fighting, he still manages to warm the hearts of those around him and make their day just a little bit better.

After all, it’s not every day that you can say you saw Spider-man dancing to Michael Jackson while you were shopping at Target.

People love what Spidey was doing.

“Now, that had me smiling the whole way through! Thank you for your very uplifting performance!” one commenter said.

“I love the young families that stopped shopping for the show. How he’s not gone viral is beyond me.” Another commenter said.

At the time of posting, this video has already amassed over 900,000 views since it was posted last June.
