Commuting is a hassle, but a volunteer traffic cop in Thailand is doing his best to entertain weary drivers.

Every morning for the past three years, 48-year-old Prapan Chaiyawong has danced his way through the busy commute. He spends more than an hour each day directing traffic, copying the moves of his favorite entertainers, like Michael Jackson.

After he's done, he goes to work at this real job as a construction worker.

He says he does it because he likes to put smiles on people's faces.
