NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A video of a toddler mimicking Sylvester Stallone’s moves while watching a clip of the training montage in “Rocky II” has earned kudos from the actor himself.
The video posted to Facebook by an Ohio dad shows the diaper-clad boy doing one-armed pushups and pretending to work a speed bag, chop wood and lift weights in sync with the big screen boxer.
The video has received millions of views online. Stallone reposted it to Instagram on Wednesday with a note saying “this kid makes me so proud.” He jokes that he may have to fight the boy in “Rocky 10.”
“This kid makes me so proud that it touches A heart so young … Maybe I have to fight him and ROCKY 10 !!!,” Stallone wrote on his official Instagram account.
Stallone earned a Golden Globe earlier this year for reprising his most famous role as Rocky Balboa in last year’s “Creed.”
