Backpack Kid is living large these days! Since gaining viral stardom thanks to creating the floss, he’s got a brand new song & some wild stories. Catch our EXCLUSIVE interview with the internet sensation here!
BackPack Kid, aka Russell Horning, completely stole the spotlight from Katy Perry during her 2017 appearance on Saturday Night Live, when he hit the stage with his now viral ‘Floss’ dance moves. The 17-year-old internet sensation has dreams that go well beyond a viral moment though, and now – he’s released a brand new music video! “Drip on Boat” dropped on Dec. 18, and the hilarious clip is giving us major Napoleon Dynamite vibes. We caught up with the famed floss creator to talk about the new visual, his friendship with Katy, and why he refuses to have a girlfriend right now. Plus, he told us about his 2019 New Year’s Eve plans, and he’s got something a little “different” up his sleeve!
