Marlins’ gyrating young fan is real. America can rejoice.

Earlier this week, a Vine video of an excitedly gyrating young Miami Marlins fan (hopefully named Elvis) took the internet by storm and then, because people can be so very cruel, it was debunked after a thorough CSI-ing.

Now, though, the Marlins and Major League Baseball have determined that this expression of joy is something you can believe in.

So rejoice, everybody. Live. Laugh. Jubilate. Gyrate. (But don’t fall out of the stands.)
