50 comes in at 1:20
I first noticed 15 year-old YouTube lip syncing sensation Keenan Cahill when he did a fascinating version of Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream. You just can’t stop staring at this kid and his wacky expressions. Keenan’s Teenage Dream cover has been viewed over 15 million times and boasts over 66 million views on his YouTube Channel.
Keenan was a guest on the Chelsea Handler show last night. He has a funny kind of irreverent personality and joked with Chelsea, calling her a cougar. They also premiered Keenan’s new video, “Down On Me” (By Jeremih featuring 50 Cent, here’s the original music video) styled to look like it was filmed in his messy bedroom. (Only the scenery was slightly different and Chelsea admitted they filmed it in LA). 50 Cent makes a cameo in the video lipsyncing his own part and he seems to be having a great time, at one point draping his necklace on Keenan. This almost makes up for all those photos 50 tweeted of himself playing with half a million in cash. It also makes it obvious that he’s dating Chelsea, but I guess we already knew that.
Keenan goes to school outside of Chicago, IL. He has a metabolic syndrome called Maroteaux-Lamy Syndrome, which is responsible for his short stature. He told Chelsea that kids recognize him in school thanks to his Internet fame and that he has people giving him high fives and asking to take his picture. I would love to see this kid on some red carpets in the future.
