50 Cent Joins Teen YouTube Sensation in Latest Viral Video
With more than 30 million YouTube hits, Keenan Cahill may just hold the current title of world's most famous lip syncer.
The bespectacled 15-year-old from Chicago has found fame taping bedroom-recorded videos of songs including Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream," Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and Justin Bieber's "Baby." Now, his latest video of "Down On Me" by Jeremih featuring 50 Cent is quickly becoming the Internet's latest sensation.
Of course, it doesn't hurt that Fiddy himself appears in the video. Cahill, who reportedly has Maroteaux-Lamy Syndrome, a rare metabolic disorder, appeared on Chelsea Handler's "Chelsea Lately" late night show on E! earlier this week, and told the host his clips have earned him high fives and notoriety at school.
Handler says she flew Cahill out to her Los Angeles-based show after being wowed by his rendition of Usher's "DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love," and Cahill taped the 50 Cent video in Handler's studio. Handler, by the way, is reportedly dating Mr. Cent.
As for Cahill's, shall we call it, unusual hair, the teen told Handler he can't grow it too long or it enters mullet territory.
"I don't want to be the next Billy Ray Cyrus," he says. Wise decision, young man. Very wise.
Start by teaching him that it is safe to do so.
