Big John Drury has a dance challenge for you.

Lace up your dancing’ shoes truckers, Big John Drury has a challenge for you.

Drury, a.k.a. The Dancing Trucker, has issued a social media video challenge for a good cause, one that is near and dear to his fast-beating heart: combating obesity.

Drury, who hauls Coke for Cowan Systems out of Cincinnati, has challenged everyone on Facebook and Twitter to make a video of themselves doing “The Running Man” dance. These are the moves that helped make Drury an Internet video hit, and a much slimmer man.

“Let’s fight the war on obesity,” said Drury.

Hear the challenge from the big man himself:

Several years ago, Drury was 6’ 7” tall and at his heaviest weighted 400 pounds. He has since shed more than 100 pounds by watching what he eats and literally dancing his butt off.

He has become a zealot of sorts, teaching Zumba-style exercise classes in the basement of his Hamilton, Ohio home.

He knows how hard it is to lose weight and stay positive while trying.

“This is for people who want to lose weight and have lost hope,” said Drury.

He asks you post your video on Facebook/Twitter with the hashtag #move4bigjohn

You can follow John on Twitter @BigJohnsTruckin, on Facebook and on YouTube.
