Sean O'Brien finally got to dance to his heart's content.

The 46-year-old British man's story went viral after a user posted photos of him on 4Chan in March, fat-shaming him for dancing in public.

"Spotted his specimen trying to dance the other week. He stopped when he saw us laughing," the anonymous user wrote.

Thanks to the Internet, he's the one laughing now. Writer Cassandra Fairbanks launched a Twitter campaign to find O'Brien and throw him the dance party he deserves. This past weekend, she did just that.

O'Brien, who the Internet dubbed "Dancing man," was flown to L.A. and received a star-studded party, after funds were raised through a GoFundMe page. The event was attended by famous supporters such as Monica Lewinsky and Andrew WK, and featured a special message from Pharrell Williams, reports Yahoo. The party also raised funds for anti-bullying charities.

The Londoner clearly had a great time. He took the stage to thank everyone for their support, and called the entire experience "overwhelming."

"I will wake up in the morning and think, 'Did that really happen?'" he told The Daily Mail.

The day after the party, O'Brien was also invited to throw the first pitch at an L.A. Dodgers' game.

A perfect ending, we think.
