There's nothing more life affirming than finding out you're not the only parent who has Gleeked out their kid, am I right? Yeah, yeah, adult themes, adult shmemes. They're never too old for listening to the Glee catalog that takes up an entire block of my iPod. And as one absolutely adorable Darren Criss doppelganger dubbed the Mini Warbler has proven, for the duds either.
In a video that is bound to go viral, I have found my new Teenage Dream who is, erm, at least seven years from actually being a teen? Now my obsession with this little boy may have something to do with the fact that the Glee take-off on the Katy Perry tune doubles as my cellphone ring tone, but the fact that his parents actually found a Warblers uniform that fits him doesn't hurt. Or that they indulge their inner Gleek with their kids like me ... and admit it to the world on YouTube. Get ready for the cuteness that is the Mini Warbler:
What was your favorite part? The tie down between his knees, right? I will say this, the kid's got some moves, and the music is just right for these kids. With an about-to-be-6-year-old who takes hip hop classes, I've found she likes to sneak downstairs when I'm watching the show and starts shaking what I gave her if you know what I mean. She's no Mike Chang y'all, but this show knows how to pick songs that move you.
In fact, it gives me an idea. I'm bookmarking this one for the next time we've got a rainy summer day. I'm calling a Glee dance party to get their crazies out.
What do you say? Are you ready to Gleek out the kids?
