January 28, 2013

Have you seen this awesome video from a young fella who calls himself 'Kid President: the self-appointed voice of a generation'?

He's been doing his thing on line since July of last year, making the case for a better world and showing off his dance moves.

His latest video is a "pep talk" to the world, where he challenges us to strive for greatness saying...

"The world needs you so stop being boring. Yeah, you! Boring is easy. Everybody can be boring."

Along the way, he pokes fun at Michael Jordan, the rock band Journey and the poet Robert Frost.

He wraps up by saying "You've just been pep talked. Create something that will make the world awesome."

He's wise, funny, highly entertaining, and just makes you feel good.

At the end, he says the video is dedicated to Gabbi, a child who is fighting cancer "like a boss."

He's made a bunch of other videos, including one with Josh Groban where he teaches Josh some dance moves.

Beyond that, we don't know Kid President's real name, age, or where he's from.

You can check out him out at
