I stopped after 10 seconds...

He looks like Glenn Beck.

PhatGayKid has the exact same vocal timbre (though higher pitch) that a lot of the miads use.

On the video, what in the world is up with the light beige walls with nothing adorning them? Is this a mental hospital, or did the Halston 1980 palette make a surprise comeback without issuing a memo to let us know first?

This is what you become if you eat Happy Meals by the truckload.

It's like a teenager pretending to be a middle-aged lesbian pretending to be a gay teenager.

yikes. like commenter 1, i made it 10 seconds before i shut it off.

@5: Don't insult us dykes like that, asshat.

I don't want to watch any more of this, so I'm afraid I can't answer your question.

@5 , @7 hahaha. thanks for that.

You fell for it! You posted it on your blog with national readership. ~It's viral~

Fat fake kid wins, we lose.

Bloody hell. On @7, I meant @6.

I'm thinking he's just a major fan of Kristen Wiig and Andy Kaufman. "Christina Aguilerick", the sneeze at 2:30, the grand finale starting at 3:38. It can't not be comedy.
13
I'm 30% more gay for having watched that...

14
Totally reminded me of Skeksis with his intermittent noises that sound like whimpering. Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKdki7_EQ…

Please observe the disheveled bed: no self-respecting gay person would display such an unsightly mess in his background. Poseur!

Oh, I also stopped watching after a few seconds.

I made it until he began "singing". Kids-this is what happens when you don't just say no to OTC cold medications!
17
OH KERMIE!
18
Aguleric...
19
If you skip to the singing it's absolutely clear that he's goofing around, at least as far as that goes.
20
Oh, and the Facebook page is pretty clearly something other than his sincere self as well. He may be that gay, but it seems clear he's doing a character in the hopes of becoming a meme. Which he now is. Success!
21
(It's also clear I need a thesaurus.)
22
Lookat the unmade bed behind him. He's definitely faking it.
23
It strikes me as funny that multiple people are saying that because he doesn't adhere to the stereotype of gay people being neat freaks via the unmade bed, that he must be faking his broadly-stereotypical gay mannerisms and/or character. I'm slightly confused if I think about it too much though.
24
Why is this fake? It reminds me of Dina Martina! Or a happier Chris Crocker. The singing is one of the greatest satires of R&B today ever ever ever. His face! I'm Laughin!

"Fake" as in it's a comedy character, not him sincerely expressing himself. Which it sounds like you agree with. Nothing wrong with it being a character, but I think that's what people were discussing.
