IF JORDAN Baker-Moller has anything to do with it, everyone will be 'muzzing' on dance floors in 2015.

The 21-year-old Rockhampton bartender and dancer gained international recognition recently when he posted a video to Facebook of himself 'muzzing' at the Stereosonic music festival in Brisbane.

While Jordan originally posted the video as a joke, it has since reached around 1 million Facebook users and gained over 50,000 likes.

"There's heaps of these massive muscly guys who are nicknamed 'brusses' at Stereosonic and they never wear a shirt and go around wearing little satchels just flexing their muscles all day," Jordan said.

"So my friend and I decided to do it as well. We took our shirts off and were flexing and stuff.

"Then we thought 'why don't we dance like them as well?'"

Jordan said after posting a video of himself dancing to Facebook, he continued to party at Stereosonic.

But when he checked Facebook a few hours later, he couldn't believe what he saw.

"It went pretty crazy," he said.

"I was at Stereosonic partying pretty hard and had a look at it later and saw random people from Melbourne and other parts of Australia had liked it. Then a few hours later, people from different countries were commenting on it in different languages.

"It got pretty out of hand, it's pretty funny. I never expected to get this much response from it at all."

Jordan said he was over the moon when his favourite DJs Showtek shared the video.

"The best thing ever was when my favourite DJs shared it because I was dancing to their song in the video. I was pretty pumped about that.

"I'm just happy people found it as funny as I did."
