A home video has been making the rounds on Facebook and has climbed its way through major news outlets and all the way to Sylvester Stallone’s desktop.
If you haven’t seen it yet, get ready for a smile when you see the cutest Rocky-style workout ever as toddler Charlie Magilavy copies every move from Rocky’s training montage in Rocky II.
Charlie’s dad Zack says: “It brings a smile to our face every time Charlie asks to ‘workout with Rocky’. He takes his workouts very seriously. If you enjoy it as much as we do, please feel free to share it. Who knows, maybe it will make it back to Sly. Please keep the negative comments to yourself. No, we do not allow him to watch the fight scenes and yes, his TV time is very limited. It’s a 2 minute clip and he’s been training for the last year!”
In fact, the Magilavy’s video has been making the rounds in the Rocky community so much that it eventually was seen by Sly himself when he re-Tweeted it to his fans over the weekend via a Daily Mail article on the little boy. Days later, Stallone even revisited the clip to make this comment:
“This kid makes me so proud that it touches A heart so young … Maybe I have to fight him and ROCKY 10 !!!”
