KUALA LUMPUR: Step aside, Britney Spears!

Make way for Assrah Nassir, a cabin crew of low-cost carrier AirAsia with nifty footsteps and panache.

Assrah struck a chord among Netizens after his video dancing onboard an AirAsia aircraft has gone viral on social media.

To date, the video has logged over 6 million views on Instagram since it was uploaded on Saturday.
The video portrayed the  dancing to Toxic - a song made popular by award-winning pop princess, Britney Spears.

His video, which was posted on 9gag on Sunday, received more than 35,000 comments and 6 million views.
