Security guard surprises American football fans and steals spotlight from cheerleaders with shock routine

A ‘security guard’ has shocked college football fans after making a surprise performance as part of the University of Tennessee dance team.

The dance routine happened during a game between the Tennessee side and the University of Kentucky.

In a TikTok video posted by the dance team, a security guard dressed in khakis and a blue polo shirt can be seen standing a bit too close to the routine.

As the dancers progress one of them becomes agitated by how close the man is standing to their performance.

As they walk off and another member of the team approaches him angrily, that’s when the surprise kicks in.

The man kicks into gear and joins in the performance to the shock and adulation of everyone in attendance.

The reception is nuts.

And fair enough, because he absolutely kills it to send everyone into raptures.

Truly a feel-good moment.

People online were equally in love with his performance.

One said: “The hair flip was everything.”

Another wrote: “This vid does not do justice how loud it was when this happened lol.”

A third added: “Buddy ate and left no crumbs.”

Meanwhile, others were seriously fooled by the whole act.

One wrote: “Nah, they really sold it. They had me.”

Another said: “I was almost triggered.”

The man in question was Michael Galyean who was invited by the team to surprise the crowd.

He had been a cheerleader in high school but eventually gave it up for over 20 years.

The team knew he had a passion for entertainment and it's safe to say he came through with one hell of a performance.

He told Newsweek that the reaction inside the stadium was ‘electric’.

He said: “To go and be on the stand and kind of see the rollercoaster of emotions that the fans went through, you know, it goes from football and excitement, and then they see this guy that's just interrupting the dance team.”

Adding: "I knew there would be some reaction, I didn't expect that reaction and it was so shockingly warm.

"It was just so well-received. It fed my 18-year-old high school cheerleading soul."

Looks like he needs to become a regular part of the show.
