He seems kind of like a queer1 Brendon Small2
  1. He seems too… sultry (especially in his lipsynch clips) to be totally straight
  2. The character from Home Movies, not it's eponymous creator

I am a big fan of The Barefoot Contessa. This kid is insane.

I find my rabid appreciation of this kid to be really concerning.

Thanks maybe.

Just open your eyes and grab onto the horn.

Heh. Those are actually pretty funny.

Is he a genius ?

I'm not sure what to say besides I like it.

The unicorn bits seem to be a riff on the Secret Snake Club, right down to the musical segment.

The Zelda bit owes most of its DNA to the Legend of Zelda ad featuring Charles Fleischer.

Beyond that, I can only show you this Photoshopped image of Charles Nelson Reilly.

Prediction: in ten years time there will be a huge artistic renaissance in American cinema as a direct reult of the existence of youtube. This kid will be wearing Tarantino's hat.

This is awesome. Also, the crazy is strong with that one.

This is totally awesome. He's like Chris Crocker, only not horribly obnoxious. And I can't quite tell if he's serious or being totally silly or some magical, fabulous combination of the two.

Wow...surprisingly awesome. A++++ as advertised, would watch again.

He didn't list "Blaster Master theme" in the credits for Legend of the Unicorn Kingdom!

Tarantino's hat? Blech. This kid will wear the John Waters hat for certain.

In my day, kids like this collected cabbage patch dolls, got beat up every day in high school, grew up and got jobs as clerks in a copy stores, and lived miserable, horribly repressed lives until their inner demons caused them to commit heinous crimes.

Nowadays, there are outlets for their weirdness, and in fact, they become celebrities. Technology is a wonderful thing.

Not really my sense of humor, but I admire the amount of work this 16 year old is putting into these. If he keeps it up, I would imagine that over time, he'll get better and they'll be actually funny.

But humor is a really subjective thing. He's a bit over the top for my taste, but, again, I admire his dedication.

These are awesome- thank you!

Is this kid male or female? S/he has a passing resemblence to the young Luke Skywalker, IMO.

Certainly a flamboyant sort of folk. No weirder than my sister thought and acted at that age, though. Which, granted, was pretty weird.

This reminds me of similar shenanigans my little brother and I would pull with our parents' VHS 'vacation and holidays' camcorder and then edit rudimentarily on a VCR. Warbles and pause-scratches were our worst enemies. I'm so glad production values have become cheaper and cheaper.

It might well be a time for a new-technology version of Invisible Hungry Aztecs In My Fridge.

He might be the next John Waters if Viacom doesn't get a hold on him first. I'd hate to see him wasted on some watered down VH1 "comedy" series that will try to package him as Andy Dick lite. The kid is brilliant.

I love it so much. Thank you blasdelf, and thank you MeFi podcast! Weeeeeee. I am so spamming everyone I know with this.

I would have missed this if not for the podcast. It’s never too late to say: This is awesome.

Would someone please spam the crap out of me when I miss shit like this? Unbelievable. (Thank you MeFi podcast, bawk bawk!)
