Of course this video will go viral! Balang is so cute — and goodness, that split at the very end.

On May 14, six-year-old Philip ‘Balang’ Bughaw, who won the “Mini Me” contest on It’s Showtime, guested on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Balang went further than busting out the moves that earned his video 12-million views. Donning a fedora, suspenders, hipster glasses and a bowtie, Balang told Ellen, via interpreter Danica Doma, that he’s excited to be in the States because of chocolates.

When asked what he wants to be when he grows older, Balang says he wants to be a Zumba instructor so that everybody will be healthy. How cute!
