Orphaned Dancer Needs Your Love

Some people have been hating on the Little Lad from Starburst.

I must defend the boy.

  • Starburst got its start in England
  • The character would easily be a hit on Kids in the Hall or Monty Python (It's too good for SNL.)
  • As the new site alerts us, he lost his mother! Have a heart.
  • Comments on YouTube indicate that his dance is a hit on high school campuses nationwide
  • The covering of the face with the accompanying exasperated yelp is comic gold
  • The companion website is well done. (Hit refresh and see the homepage background change.)
Now watch this tribute remix put together by someone with too much time on their hands.

  • I have to admit, I saw this over on adfreak, but I just skimmed the post and didn't watch.

    Oh, what I've been missing. When he sings it "up an octave." That's comedy.

    I might just have to go and buy some.

  • I gave in and finally watched little starburst boy. It definitely would be right at home in the Kids in the Hall stable of fine comedy.

  • I can't believe that Little Lad has gone THAT viral. As if I needed another reason to doubt the collective brainpower of our nation...

    I will admit, that Little Lad remix is totally absurd and had me laughing through my hangover.

    I still say that my reaction is the same as those kids in the commercial. (That's right, the W.T.F. look...)

  • I love this.
    Is that the love child of Mr. Bean and Lily Tomlin, or what?
