About Marquese

Seen by more than 130 million people, CBS called it "simply mind-blowing", Ellen DeGeneres "incredible", Gather named it the "best dubstep ever seen or performed by anyone – period", and Perez Hilton said " seriously, this guy makes Michael Jackson's moonwalk look like a stroll in the park."

Marquese Scott (born November 5, 1981) is an American animation dancer who started firstly with popping dance. His work has been seen in music videos that he creates, TV shows such as The Ellen DeGeneres Show, advertisements, and live performances at award shows. He has signed with Xcel Talent Agency and is part of the dance crew Dragon House. His YouTube channel is WHZGUD2. Marquese was first exposed to dancing when he noticed a dance contest at his local roller skating rink. He began to take dancing seriously while in high school in Indianapolis, Indiana, joining friends in a school dance club. After high school he joined the military and continued to dance whenever he got the opportunity. After leaving the Navy in 2003,  he moved to Atlanta, Georgia to be with his family. It is there where he met other dancers and learned the technique of animations, and began uploading YouTube videos of himself dancing in public places. Before he began his newfound skill of dancing, Scott worked at a local Wal-Mart. Marquese's 53rd YouTube upload, a video of himself dancing to a Butch Clancy remix of Foster the People's Pumped Up Kicks in 2011 is what propelled Marquese Scott to stardom. The Pumped Up Kicks video of Marquese dancing went viral, gaining 1.5 million views in four days, and currently has over 133 million views. More credits below:
