When you're a legend of the game, like tennis player Roger Federer, you can do anything you want without feeling like a dork.

Even on the very public and potentially embarrassing "Bongo Cam" at the Hopman Cup in Perth, Australia.

It's your standard fan cam, but with a pair of superimposed graphic bongos that the crowd can pretend to play with.

Federer is of course more than happy to play along, as Gloria Estefan's "Conga" blasts in the background.

It's one of those moments that's ordinarily kinda lame, but because he's a 17-time Grand Slam winner - it's actually the best thing ever.

At least we know what Federer will now be doing if the whole tennis thing doesn't work out.

Federer's dad is down with it though. He apparently texted him, telling him to stop with the air bongo antics.

Colour us gushing, but we really love this guy.
