Before #Transformations, before #DailyFreakshow, when YouTube was still in its infancy, I used to run around Hollywood Boulevard accosting boys and asking them if they were THE CUTEST BOY IN THE WORLD®. The joke (in my mind) was that the boys weren’t always drop-dead handsome…. but every boy wants to believe they are. And it’s hysterical to watch them explain to me why they think they’re cute.
I loved it. And I thought I was doing them a great service, calling attention to their most attractive qualities in public, and on camera, for all the world to see.
UNFORTUNATELY, the comment sections were always rather vicious to me, calling me a pervy old man, and saying it was creepy to watch me drool over young boys, and I needed to leave them the hell alone.
So I stopped.
But I accidentally ran across an episode today while looking for something else, and wanted to share it with you. Mostly for the boys. The boys, the boys. Omg. SUCH A TIME CAPSULE. 2006. Mid-aughts. MySpace era. Emo still in full effect. The boy bangs. The facial hair. The terrible, terrible fashions. I love it. They are all SO ADORABLE to look at through a 2017 filter.
And you know, now that I think about it, the boys in this video MIGHT REALLY BE…. THE CUTEST BOYS IN THE WORLD (OMG YAY!)
Watch it below.
