This Is Your Readership

Okay. I can't keep myself from posting this. I always have one off-topic video every week, but this one actually stars a 14-year-old who, according to the credits, wrote, edited, and stars. This may well be true, but the kid's a freakin' genius howsoever you look at it. Another reason I'm grateful for YouTube.

Unfortunately it also pretty much sums up, in an audio/visual way, the lack of exercise in a modern American kid's life.

Come on - lack of exercise? Did you see the thumb action this kid had on the video control? And he was wrestling demons, for goodness sake! Wrestling!

I loved this and want to hire this kid immediately to produce my next TV show! Thanks for the link!

Love it--such boy humor. I know--I have three of them.

My favorite parts:
confronting Senor Rodriguez
and the fact that he was reading R. Crumb's Fritz the Cat. Gotta luv that!

I think the crying in the bathtub is my favorite part. Either that or the dinner made of children's tears.

I think the moment it won me over was the inhuman voice screaming, "Mom! Where's the bowls?" Then pouring himself a glass of Cheerios and finding that it worked pretty well.

I've also a weakness for the inner demons.

Have you all seen dylan's couch? I have not quite mastered the art of posting youtube videos on my blog, but if you can visit dylanscouch.com, do it. He calls it 1 kid and in ipod. It is brilliant. If you think cheerio boy is a trip, you will have to check out Dylan.

I think the little "eh, not so bad" shrug he gives after tasting the Cheerios cocktail is just perfect.

And did you notice that when he's playing the video game, he's looking at exact same image as when he was just watching the television?

Both of them subtle details -- something kinda rare in the average 14-year-old kid.

"Dinner Made of Children's Tears" was my favorite headline, although "Fight the Man in My Closet" was my favorite facial expression. And the butt scratch during Nap was pretty darn funny too.

I'm glad I watched until the end of the credits to see how Low Blow Productions got its name. Corey is a genius. And kudos to Caroline (mom? sister?) for the camera work and editing.
