Sean O'Brien, known around the world as "Dancing Man," threw out the first pitch at Sunday's Dodgers-Padres game and also got a celebrity surprise.

O'Brien became a viral sensation after a cyberbully posted pictures making fun of him dancing.

After anonymous commenters made fun of one man trying to dance, a group of women is trying to organize a dance party for him.


In addition to the first pitch, the London-native also showed off some dance moves at the stadium, which was shown on DodgerVision.

His appearance at Dodger Stadium was a part of O'Brien's whirlwind weekend in Los Angeles. Saturday night, an epic dance party was held for him in Hollywood.

Two Echo Park women launched a campaign to bring the 47-year-old from London to Los Angeles to dance with them and hundreds of others, including celebrities Pharrell and Moby, who performed at the event.

And the surprises kept coming, including one made possible by our own Entertainment reporter George Pennacchio.

"Thank you to ABC7 and George Pennacchio and Neil Diamond's team. They wanted me to let you know that he has some very special seats for you at his show in London next month," dance organizer Hope Leigh told O'Brien. Diamond is O'Brien's favorite singer.

Saturday night's dance party benefited an anti-bullying campaign.
