Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents may be on the job when you’re going through airport security, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have a sense of humor.

A new video shared by the TSA caught the adorable moment a young boy challenged one of the agents to a dance-off at New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport.

According to TSA representatives, officer Joshua McCall was helping a family through the screening process on their way out of Newark last week when one of the family’s kids started doing the floss — a dance move involving swinging your arms with clenched fists from back to front and side to side.

When McCall, impressed by the youngster’s moves, complimented him on his skills, the boy turned around and challenged him to a dance-off.

That’s when the officer busted out his own version of the floss, as shown in the fun clip below.

“After ensuring all are secure as they enter the checkpoint, our TSA officers will be happy to accept any dance challenges from passengers,” Tom Carter, TSA’s security director for New Jersey said in the post.

“It’s a good example of the human side of our great and dedicated professionals on the front lines of homeland security,” Carter added.

TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein told NBC the family was so appreciative of how pleasant the TSA officer made the experience for the young boys that they even asked him to take a family photo with them as a sweet mememto.
