I'm So Into This Kind of Guy

Let me introduce you to FRED FIGGLEHORN..

He is a fictional character created and portrayed by American actor Lucas Cruikshank. Cruikshank, a teenager from Columbus, Nebraska, created the character for his channel on the video-sharing website YouTube. The videos are centered on Fred Figglehorn, a fictional 6-year-old who has a dysfunctional home life and "anger management issues" (Wikipedia).

Creative, isn't he?!
He also deepens his character so well..
He doesn't mind looking like a ridiculous person in front of the camera..

I can say this Lucas guy is imaginative and talented..
Take a look one of Fred Figglehorn's video on YouTube..

Cruikshank obtained the Fred channel in April 2008, and was launched officially May 1, 2008. Cruikshank believes that viewers either "automatically love Fred or automatically hate Fred, there is no in between." The videos primarily consist of the character speaking to the audience about what is happening in his life. Fred has a high-pitched "chipmunk" voice, making him sound more like a 6-year-old. According to Cruikshank, this effect and the hyperactive appearance of the character are achieved by speeding up the video. The character lives with his recovering drug-addicted and alcoholic mother, whose voice is often heard, and his grandmother.Fred's father has been mentioned several times as being on death row in the state penitentiary. Fred hasn't met his father as he left Mrs. Figglehorn while she was still pregnant with Fred. The series uses a floating timeline, that is, it is always taking place in the current year, meaning that Fred is perpetually 6 years old, and in Kkndergarten. He also has a crush on a girl in his kindergarten classmate named Judy. Fred has described Judy as, "so mean... yet so attractive." Fred's grandmother is mentioned as briefly caring for Fred while his mother was in rehab, on account of alcoholism and drugs. In December 2009, Cruikshank filmed Fred: The Movie, which will air on Nickelodeon in 2010. Nickelodeon hopes to create a franchise surrounding the character and has committed to a sequel (Wikipedia).

The first thought that comes to my mind when I first saw Fred's YouTube video is "This guy is cute!!"..
I don't know,, maybe some of you don't agree with me..
But after I browsed Google and saw his photo, I felt like my opinion is proven.. XD
See for yourself..

@.@ Can't speak a word...

FYI,, he also has two Christmas music video titled Christmas Is Creepy and Christmas Cash..
Like the melody and the animation.. :D
