God love the internet. Seriously…
You might not have heard of Keenan Cahill but chances are, you’ll recognize him. This fifteen year old kid with the MacBook Pro in his Chicago bedroom has racked up nearly 70,000,000 hits on his YouTube channel, mostly by lip-synching to hits by Katy Perry, Bonnie Tyler and Michael Jackson. And now, in a bit of meta, he’s featured in the video for Fifty Cent’s newest release “Down On Me.”
This is a kid with a rare genetic disorder called Maroteaux-Lamy Syndrome. But he’s not known for that. He’s known for this. Known for this enough that Fifty Cent sought him out for his latest video.
God love the internet. Seriously… Happy Friday.
