America's birthday – a time to show your patriotism, unity and above all, what it means to be American.
However, Jashandeep Kahlon, a teen from California, celebrated 4th of July a little differently – with an impromptu dance off that brought two different cultures together. The compilation of Snapchat videos showed both Mexican and Punjabi neighbors dancing together in the street on Independence Day. Together, the neighbors enjoyed dancing to songs that ranged from "Gasolina" by Daddy Yankee, to a popular Indian song by Rail Gaddi.
