    By SOPHIE JANE EVANS FOR DAILYMAIL.COM

    Musical superstars have offered to perform at a VIP party being organised for the man who was ridiculed for dancing in public - where he will be surrounded by thousands of beautiful women.

    Pharrell Williams, Moby and Andrew W.K have all lent their support to the Londoner known affectionately as Dancing Man by telling him not to be ashamed to dance.

    Two photos of him were posted online with the caption: 'Spotted this specimen trying to dance the other week. He stopped when he saw us laughing.'

    The man who was pictured happily dancing in one shot - and bowing his head in apparent humiliation and dejection in the other - was tracked down thanks to a social media campaign.

    The music lover who is named Sean and lives in London was identified after upset Twitter user Cassandra Fairbanks, from California, spotted the photos and asked other users to help find him.

    The Free Thought Project activist manage located him within hours and 2,000 other women have now invited him to a huge party in Los Angeles where it is believed he will be the only man.

    Pharrell, who has had number one hits with Blurred Lines and Happy, asked Cassandra to keep him informed about the party and tweeted to Sean: 'Never be ashamed of yourself.'

    The same warm sentiment was offered by Moby - real named Richard Melville Hall - who offered his DJ services for free.

    Star support: Both Pharrell and Moby told Dancing Man not to be ashamed to dance as they posted their support for Sean on Twitter

    The success of Ms Fairbanks's tweet and the subsequent party invite has touched the hearts of people across the world, with many social media users deeming the story 'amazing' and tear-jerking.

    Sean was first pictured dancing enthusiastically at what appeared to be a concert last month. But after the bullying cameraman and his friend started laughing at him, he bowed his head in shame.

    The bullies later uploaded the two, contrasting photos of Sean to the anonymous message board, 4chan, alongside the nasty message labeling him a 'specimen' and criticizing his carefree dancing.
    The post was then screenshot and posted on Imgur, where it attracted the attention of thousands of social media users, including Ms Fairbanks, who said she was 'horrified' by its 'cruel' nature.

    On Thursday evening, she uploaded the post her Twitter page, writing: 'Anyone know this man or who posted this? There's a huge group of ladies in LA who would like to do something special.'

    Ms Fairbanks's tweet was quickly circulated on the social network, with thousands of users joining in her efforts to track down the Dancing Man. Before long, the hashtag #finddancingman went viral.

    site, Ms Fairbanks explained that she and a few other women were 'concerned the photo spreading further could cause embarrassment for Sean'.

    [​IMG]
    More support: Another user, with the handle @tinypants', said she hoped someone on Twitter could identify Sean - before his name was revealed. 'Half the Internet wants to give him a hug,' she wrote, using the hashtag

    Fellow dancing enthusiast: Charlie Heapy added: 'We need to #FindDancingMan and have a big dancing party!'

    But eventually, they decided that the benefits of successfully locating and standing up for Sean - 'bringing some positivity to such an upsetting situation' - outweighed the risks, she wrote.

    Now that everyone feels great for being such kind, caring, and inclusive people, no further calls from dancing fat man will be retuned.

    He was planted in this video, just like when sports fans and ushers are shown dancing during timeouts. It is all choriegraphed in advance, all fake.

    Unless one of those rich assholes intervenes. Amazing how much weight a guy loses in a woman's eyes (mainly one that would attend a party like this) when money is involved. He's getting laid, just a matter of price. Hell, I'd probably bang a woman his size for the right price -- I need the get the stairs refinished and an upstairs AC unit, bring her on!

    You can't be absolutely disgusting obese, even while rich, and get laid unless you find an epic gold digging whore or prostitute.

    But a fat guy a la Tony Soprano season 6 (pretty fat) with confidence, money, and a tinge of a mean streak? That guy is getting laid so easily its not even funny.

    The things women are attracted to the most are charisma, a slight bad boy (nothing over the top) that lets her know without vocalizing it if someone fucks with her that guy is in for a world of shit, money, and just being an ultra confident alpha.

    That will get you 90% of women on the planet as long as you are not totally obese. If you are in good shape? Now you can hit the top 10% on the reg.

    Even these women who date/prefer skinny jeans, large frame glasses, emo half-women would cream their panties if an alpha with some charisma started in with her.
