Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Jewish parenting blog Kveller featured a video of a boy's bar mitzvah last week and called it "the craziest bar mitzva video" ever.

The clip shows Sam Horowitz's entrance to his initiation ceremony which took place at the Omni Hotel in Dallas and was originally posted on YouTube on November 26, 2012.

In the video, Sam, presumably 13, shakes his hips to Jennifer Lopez's "Dance Again" accompanied by half a dozen backup dancers in a stage adorned with his name shining in the background.

After being picked up by Kveller, the clip has gone viral earning both criticism and praises from viewers.

Others, like the Dallas Observer simply dubbed the performance: "the craziest entrance to a religious celebration and ceremony we've ever seen."
