Funnily enough, this reminds me of another Nicki Minaj song: “I’m the Best.” (Thanks for the tip, werttrew and Ian.)

Without having watched this video, I can predict that the person dancing is actually the WORST. Because they are in an Apple Store, and Apple and all of its supporters are all the worst.
I’m pretty new here and am not sure how the Videogum community feels towards Apple, so I’m going to wait to see how your comment is voted before I make a formal response.
I’ll never understand how people can take sides on brands of computers.
Agreed. It’s just a corporate brand. There’s absolutely no sense in aligning yourself with a company that you are not a part of and has no bearing on your life.
On an unrelated note, GO COWBOYS. WHOOOOOOO.
Don’t give in to peer pressure, Doc! Say what’s on your mind! We’re a pretty tolerant bunch, so long as you don’t want us to go to a’gemi’ngle.com
Votes have spoken, it seems everyone is pretty OK with everything. Diversity wins. Now that that’s settled, are we going to a’gemi’ngle or what?
No! Watch the video! This kid is an honourary monster, because he is amazing!
My boyfriend thinks the same with me. He is 12 years older than me, lol. We met online at A’geM’ing’le. com The premiere online community for older women seek younger men or older men seek younger women to meet and share your interests. Ever feel that you would best enjoy someone who is not in your age group? Leave behind the other general dating sites out there and try us.
The 1:31 mark made me very uncomfortable.
The girl with the hat made me angry. Really? You’re going to be judging the baby hipster dancing in an Apple Store when you’re wearing THAT on your head?
seriously, the stink faces on those girls makes me afraid.
wipe that face off your head!
Nailed it, cornballer.
She wasn’t judging him because he is dancing, she was judging him because he was dancing to a song featuring Will I Am.
That damn dancing kid keeps distracting me from shooting my “IS THAT WHAT YOU KIDS ARE WEARING TODAY?!?!” old-person sneer at the girl behind him with the knitted bear hat.
I’ve seen many adults in my neighborhood wearing those things. GROWN ADULTS! WEARING THIS SHIT! AT BARS, EVEN! Sometimes they even wear fucking tails with them.
Sometimes I hate Portland.
That is a furry (Like James Durbin), they are the WORST. Also a furry went to my roommates high school and his name was Phil Collins. LOL
I have seen grown-ass men wearing them around town (the only iota of defence they have is that at least I’ve seen then worn in actual toque weather), and I just want to scream “WHERE YOUR BALLS AT?”
“I’m so embarrassed for him.” – Girl in bear hat
Dear Girl Standing Behind this Awesome Kid:
Stop looking all askance at him like that. He totally makes those glasses and the funny dance work for him. Your raccoon hat on the other hand…
Today’s ESPN top story: “The Hammer is My Penis” places an embarrassing third in the “Race to Make a Bear/Raccoon Hat Joke” Videogum semifinals.
In other sports news, Wichita bested Sioux City in an epic clash of Kronum titans…”
I was thinking the same thing. Ugh. All the repressed unpopular-kid memories are coming out and wanting to yell at that girl. She’s wearing a fucking rat for a hat.
“UGHHH he is soooooo immature.” – girl in fuzzy cat hat and 4x too much makeup
The ambiguous animal-hatted girl’s name is Donna Darko? You don’t say.
The Donna Crown Bear Hat Affair? [insert clapping gif]
So he has a series of videos but for some reason he introduces all his other ones, and it totally kills the joy of just thinking that this kid just went to the apple store and decided to dance to Nicki Minaj
This kid will revive your joy. http://vimeo.com/21972371
Does anyone else think that kids today could do with a little less self-confidence?
Hence my “It Doesn’t Get Better” campaign to bring them all down a peg or two.
I say let them have it now, because in 10-15 years he’ll be all jaded and commenting on videos of other kids dancing
I wish I was this kid in 1987. I would have been dancing in my ripped jean jacket to Def Leppard’s “Animal” at the mall the darndest things.
The mall could have taped you on 8mm and mailed a copy to everyone with a JVC player.
haha. “There you go” is what I’m going to say every time I stop someone from doing what they love from now on.
Girl in Bear Hat?
Irish kid with Dreads?
bear/racoon hat 4 life
“I’d Hit That.” – Girl in Bear Hat
The Bear Hat girl need to chill with the judgment. Girl, you’re wearing a bear hat!
True Grit did it!
I would totally watch a movie that was just 90 minutes of this dude riding around in his bear suit, talking incoherently and performing freelance dentistry
thekelburrows tweeted this & its too good not to share
Is that bill Murry in the blue?
No. That’s Bill Furry.
No one will ever believe you.
Side note: Did anyone else think, “Oh, huh, young boy knows and enjoys the Buggles. Good for him, branching out and……oh, wait a sec. Ugh, I’m getting old.”?
Indeed. For a couple of seconds I thought the CD was skipping, but then I remembered that there is no such thing as CDs anymore and that we’re living in the FUTURE and I’m old and probably going to die.
Wow, this kid just dances in Apple store all the time.
Sorry yourmom, this wasn’t suppose to be a reply :/
The weird thing is he goes to nightclubs to buy computers.
I like the Friday one
What is the “hey, this isn’t a library” of computer stores?
That kid just made my day a thousand times shinier.
Comment on youtube: “He’s my favourite gay who doesn’t know they’re gay yet”.
Response: See, as a member of team gay I totally would be stoked if this kid is on our team. But as a member of humanity wouldn’t it be just awesome if his amazing dance moves/face was totally straight and that we were building this amazing world where everyone was just full of this level of happiness-inducing mania and it was completely irrelevant what their sexual preference was? I mean. Wouldn’t it? *whistles ‘Somewhere over the rainbow’ and walks into the sunset*
I don’t really get all the hatred of the bear hat. If it’s not your thing, so what. The only reason the hat confuses me is because she is wearing it inside and during what appears to be a warm season given the attire of her friends.
Hating on her because she is a hater is understandable, but then making fun of her hat seems to negate that sentiment.
Given your “If it’s not your thing, so what,” mentality, I’m not sure Videogum is really your sort of thing. But so what? Carry on!
Point taken, but I’ve always seen videogum as generally anti-hater. Sure we point out the absurd, but it usually seems celebratory as seen in the “We Should All Be So Lucky As To Find Something In This World That Makes Us Happy” series. That’s one of the many reasons I like this place. So I’m not leaving.
Awww, kittensmash. I totally get your point. I’m generally in favor of those who are earnest and honest in their enjoyment of something, which is why not many people are hating on the kid who’s actually dancing. It’s just really easy to make fun of the girl who is sneering at the boy like “I can’t believe he is making a fool of himself like that” when she is a) obviously coming off as a hater, and b) wearing a silly hat that she’ll look back on with embarrassment.
I guess to put it in a clearer way, I don’t think anyone would have said anything negative about the hat if she were wearing the hat while also dancing and having fun, like a kid. Instead she just looks like a kid who thinks she’s too adult to have fun.
I was being earnest in my original comment, fwiw. I still love all the monsters! Hugs all around!
I see it as a blatant cry for attention. It’s manufactured, artificial uniqueness that isn’t actually unique. It’s the headwear equivalent of a tall bike.
What uniqueness ISN’T manufactured and artificial? A third nipple?
I work with teenagers, and I’ve found that defining the difference between those who wear something “to be different”/”cry for attention” versus those that just genuinely follow their own sense of style isn’t as easy at it seems. This is true for adults too, but teens are an easier target. I am probably overly sensitive to this issue as a mentor and as someone who had an atypical fashion sense as a teen. #nohaterade
Feral children are unique, but maybe not in a good way. Schizophrenics too.
Whereas the kid in the blue horn-rimmed glasses and 42 youtube videos with a Fred Figglehorn vibe, we’re cheering him on, right?
We return her sneer mostly because she is a hater, but also because she’s pretentious and ridiculous while being a hater. The hat is a trend, you see. I’ve seen stupid people wearing them. She it’s not just “her thing.”
Plus she and her terrible friends (let’s not be forgetting that her friends are also terrible, regardless of hatlessness!) seem like huge bitches, so it’s fair game.
It’s true. People in bear hat houses shouldn’t throw sneers.
I read most of that in Werner Herzogs voice…
Hatter’s gonna hat
i actually made a bear hat a few years ago so all the hate of the hat makes me sad. granted, she is mean, but i do like her hat.
It’s not really hatred. If we’re going to comment on an internet video of a kid looking slightly disapprovingly at a younger kid dancing, whilst looking kind of silly herself, there’s only so much disapproval you can direct at her before you realize that you’re the one wearing the bear hat.
Hey, did anybody notice the girl with the bear hat? It’s pretty subtle, I’ll bet none of you even saw it before I pointed it out just now!
- Nick Madson
upvotes to both of you!
Everyone needs to stop stealing this kid’s shine. He is GETTING IT! This video is nothing but awesome (unless of course it is inauthentic in some way e.g. and older hipster parent is directing behind the screen, or he is an Andy Milonakis child adult)
Or M NIGHT SHYAMALAN TWIST the older hipster parent is Andy Milonakis!
I wish the twist were that the girl in the Donna Darko hat were actually Lexy and/or Stephany.
Ugh, what’s with the girl in the Donna Darko hat?
Did you just Donna Darko a Donna Darko joke?
Welcome to the next level.
remember when John Hodgman used to be in Apple ads? I mean, those were a little annoying (thanks, Justin Long), but this just seemed a little sloppy and unprofessional.
I can’t believe I’m the first person to comment on that silly hat the girl is wearing!!!
HATGATE 2011 NVR 4GET
Haha. My boyfriend makes the same references to bear hats as me. He is 12 yrs older! lol.
I just watched a 12 year old kid do pelvic thrusts… which way to jail?
Ha that was my favorite part! (Only because the pelvic thrust is my fallback move when I hit the clubs)…. cellmates?
I am absolutely terrible.
this video is awesome. no sarcasmgum.
this kid doesn’t give a fuck in all the best ways.
Those background girls have got to be the shittiest back-up dancers I’ve ever seen.
I think the bear hat is distracting everyone from the wedgie pickage at 1:09….
and i agree…anytime I’m about to ruin someone’s fun, i believe a good hearty “There ya go” is in order.
okay i’m gonna be honest, i work in an apple store and the youtube dancers are sooooo freaking annoying. borrow a friends iphone, why is this a trend,GET OUT MY STORE!
