Following the viral success of the clip, Jordan and his mom, Brittni-Rae Bascombe, appeared on Good Morning America to talk about their viral video and what Black Panther meant to them.
Jordan, who was decked out in a Black Panther costume, was shy during the first part of the interview, but slowly opened up as interview progressed. Michael B. Jordan commented on the original video and said Jordan “nailed it.”
When asked how he felt about that, Jordan shyly said, “It was cool because someone from the movie commented on my video.”
The youngster really came out of his shell when he was asked to do his famous impression, accents and all. His mother is also a “super fan” of the movie, and says she knew something was different about this movie.
“It's more than a movie, it's a movement," she told GMA. "As soon as we watched it, he wanted to go back and see it again. He normally doesn't stay awake through a two-and-a-half hour movies so I knew that something was different about this movie."
The GMA hosts presented Jordan with an assortment of toys, but the biggest gift was a video message from Winston Duke, the actor that portrays M’Baku.
“Jordan, I, M'Baku, wish to make you an honorary member of my tribe," Duke said in his movie accent. "Thank you for killing the M'Baku Challenge. You are amazing, I love you, you are amazing."
“Thank you for participating and making such an amazing video, I couldn't have done it better myself," he continued. "You did everyone's voice! So cool. Thank you, thank your family, you guys are awesome. Bless."
