An 8-year-old, autistic boy impresses the internet with his jaw-dropping dance moves after grooving to Michael Jackson's "Thriller" on camera last month.

The boy entered a webcam challenge and completely mastered his impression, right in the middle of a busy walkway.

So, what to wait for? Get ready to be amazed!

William has never had a dance lesson, and even after that, as soon as her mother (named Gemma) played the hit on her phone, he performed incredible dance moves to just floored you down.

And, the winner is..... William Ryan! *GRIN*

William's mother, Gemma Ryan, wrote in a comment, "Three years ago, when William was five he was diagnosed with autism. He struggled to communicate, struggled academically in school and continues to struggle to socialise and make friends, but about 18 months ago his dad introduced him (via YouTube) to the wonders of Michael Jackson, and he watched his videos for hours and learned all his routines off by heart."

His dancing is the thing that gives him his stamp and his identity!

Gemma said, "He loves to dance, and as I've been reading comments to him it has blown his mind that so many people like him."

William also performed in the Thriller Live show, earlier this year.

Extras: William Ryan lives with his parents, Gemma and David and his four-year-old younger brother Edward, who also has autism.
