Plant City, Fla. (AP) — In the jargon of the internet, Casey Hamilton is chaotic good.

He is the human embodiment of “dance like no one’s watching,” with a disarming wholesomeness bred in his native Plant City.

The 25-year-old dresses like a flamboyant 9-year-old with a credit card and no parental supervision, and makes it look good, right down to his trademark pink Crocs festooned with Jibbitz, the little cartoon character-shaped charms he adds to the rubber shoes’ ventilation holes.
