In lieu of the weekly celebration of five things that are awesome in the world, I have decided to get lazy and go viral. No, I’m not going to post videos of myself doing a mash-up of Barbra Streisand and Lady Gaga (although I’m sure that would be a hit). I’m going to recap three videos I found this week that I absolutely adored.
Coincidentally they all feature kids. Kids are usually adorable, but not always. These kids just stole my heart right away.
Remember that big football game that happened in February? The one that everyone fast forwards through to get to the commercials? Well one of the biggest commercials that aired then featured a miniature Darth Vader trying to use the force on various things around his house. It was super cute and an immediate hit. Thor is even better.
I’ve never seen Legally Blond The Musical, because let’s face facts and accept that the movie was enough. There was no need for a terrible sequel or a lackluster musical. Yet if that lackluster musical had not happened, I would not have found this incredible video of an 11 year old boy singing his ass off to one of that shows numbers. This kid has stardom written all over him. Not sure? Check the sass out at the 2:08 mark, cuz girlfriend is gonna pwn the stage.
Born This Way
I do not like the new Lady Gaga music. I was only absentmindedly interested in her old stuff. I’m not looking forward to the new cover on Glee, but when I saw this video of a Cali kid doing his self-choreographed dance number in an Apple Store I actually listened to the whole thing through. It is very heartwarming to see young boys delighting in music and dance the way I did as a child, but without the stern disapproving stare of gender normativity that was my parents. They and I are just born this way.
Three Vids, Three Kids. No muss, No fuss. Got your own viral video to contribute? Please make it SFW…I’m looking at you, Polt!
