PHOTOS: Meet Craigery Morgan, The Web’s Handsome New Lip-Syncing Viral Star

Spreading around everywhere from Reddit to RealJock.com, this video of buff Orlando-based gay hotty Craigery Morgan lip synching to Saturday Night Live‘s “Surprise Party” skit is adorbs. In just two days the Kristin Wiig riff clocked nearly 700,000 views, making Morgan an insta-viral star. The former Abercrombie & Fitch store staffer grew up in Anaheim (as my social network stalking says) 20-year-old University of Central Florida junior (apparently there is somebody in California impersonating Craigery!) also recorded himself performing the hilarious “Jamie Lee Curtis / Activia” skit, and now it’s your job to blow that one up too.

And, bless him, super over-achiever Penelope.

  • Blake

    LOVE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • tazz602

    Forget him – in the bad romance video, who is the tall STUD on the far right with the mutton chops?


    C’mon Queerts…….there are a kizillion hot dudes on the internets prancing around lipsychin, and vlogging……..It took foreva to see Davey Waveys junk (whatever happened to him? did he stop delivering to someone in Queertyland??? :p)…….

    Unless first time outta the gate we get to see the goods pleeze pass on ’em………

  • fwah

    @tazz602 -OMG- I thought I was the only one drooling uncontrolably. That guy is a-maz-ing!

  • Scott

    If I looked like him I’d never wear a shirt either. Cute, funny guy.

  • Theo

    OMG…this guy is so lovely.

  • scott ny'er

    He’s very cute. Very A&F. He’s a perfect fit for the store.

    I can also see him in Corbin Fisher stuff too. That All-American face and great body.

  • AdonisOfFire

    Too pretty for my taste, I like more rugged manlier faces, cute boy though.

  • hf2hvit

    Strap a dick on the chick and you might have one top in the room.

  • ask ena

    @hf2hvit: tee hee!

  • anyway

    Welcome to Wavey Davey v2.0!

    Memo to Craigery: Congratulations. Best of luck turning this opportunity into a chance at mainstream stardom. You seem to have all the right qualities. Here’s your chance! Good luck!

  • Scot

    Haven’t seen his videos yet But WHAT A CUDDLE PUPPY. I’d have fun with that!

  • Hilarious

    He’s cute and all but I don’t see what the “talent” is. Eh, whatever.

    He was hot till I pressed play and he literally ripped his balls to shreds before my eyes. I don’t see the point in getting that buff to be that ladylike. False advertising.

  • Black Pegasus

    Meh, he’s ok I guess..

    I’d let him Blow me.

  • EdWoody

    He’s outrageously beautiful.

  • NAP79

    Cute, but like Davey Wavey, better on mute. Its difficult to focus on how hot he is when he’s miming an already flamboyant Kristin Wigg character.

  • pete

    He’s too self-absorbed for my taste. Is everybody a fame-whore these days?

  • MickJr

    He’s already been inducted into the Nipple Hall of Fame!

  • Scott from CA

    I know Craig personally and while he is somewhat of a famewhore (and fully admits it, this kid has almost nothing to hide) it doesn’t make him any less of a complete cuddly, sweetheart. He deserves all of the good stuff that this random video has brought to him.

  • Craig

    You have your information wrong. The Anaheim is a fake. The real craig morgan is from Vero Beach.

  • Tonic

    He’s a dime a dozen cutie. I just don’t see that as a talent. If he had put his shirt on, no one would be watching him, but kudos to him for knowing that and exploiting it!

  • Montana Joe

    Is it just me or are these videos a snooze fest? He’s kinda hot but that doesn’t make these videos entertaining…

  • TheInsider

    Geez, shouldn’t he be studying? Bet his folks are happy to be shelling a few grand so their kid can do this. Dumb.

  • Bronson

    he is hysterical and should never wear clothing. ever.

  • SouLKid

    Apparently Craigery Morgan is just a pseudonym he created. His real name is Hayes Davis and he’s from San Diego. Not, that it matters what i think about him. He’s so adorable :-)

  • beached11

    He needs a clothing brand sponsor soon. We don’t want him to get sick now do we?

  • Frank

    Anyone who is that cute, and that funny, needs to be stopped. You can be cute or you can be funny, but not both, for God’s sake!!!! Leave the rest of us something to strive for!

  • edfu

    Why does he look so different in each pic???

  • Damien

    Waayyyy to self-absorbed (as has already been said).

  • Jim

    Don’t get the fuss…..there are a gazillion A & F boys like him here in LA. Personally, I’d take the hunky guy trying to dance to “Bad Romance”.

  • Brutus

    I need someone to email me a copy of his workout routine and diet.


    Thanks in advance.

  • peter

    why do the cute ones always have to be so nelly?

  • Jay Jay

    So this Craigery guy is gay. And yes, I agree he’s self-absorbed. He’s physically good looking but too into himself to be truly hot.

  • Darryl

    I lost all interest as soon as he opened his mouth…another frivilous queen…what a waste.

  • DR

    the skits aren’t my thing, but they’re fun. *shrug* let’s lighten up, guys.

  • Rex D

    He’s 20… and he’s gay… of course he like attention. When he comes up with something ORIGINAL, rather than using other people’s material… then he will deserve some attention. You guys just like him because he’s cute and you are desperate!

  • alan brickman

    He’s cute…and so is Mutton chops!!!

  • Craig

    @Scott from CA: you dont know him lol

  • Kieran

    This is what straight men mean when they talk about gay men “playing for the other team”.

  • alan brickman

    wow….. so much jealous on here today…..

  • Michael

    Funny, but really long.

  • Surfy

    He reminds me of Xander in ‘Drawn Together.’

  • Hilarious

    It’s extremely amusing to me that he already has fanboys and over a million views on that uninteresting video just because he’s attractive.

    If an average looking person attempted this same video it wouldn’t even have received views in the first place.

    Talk about transparent. Your desperation is seriously showing if you think anything is special about this video, especially if you’re defending it from criticism.

    Feel free to admit you’re using it for jack off material but pretending he’s some talented star about to break out in the industry is pathetic at best.

  • Hilarious

    @alan brickman: No, Alan Dickman. It’s not jealousy, it’s honesty. Know the difference.

  • Brutus

    @Hilarious: Yeah, there’s really nothing more to this than a wicked cute, fit guy being funny with his shirt off.

    But that’s good enough for me.

  • edgyguy1426

    Wow! I’m glad I didn’t go to school with most of you guys. Self- absorbed? fame whore? Frivilous queen? This is lite fun. That’s all.. but you know what they say about bullies, most are just jealous anyway.

  • Jim

    I don’t get it. What’s so great about someone who’s devoid of real talent? It’s like linking to a drag queen and saying she’s the cat’s pajamas for lip-syncing to someone else’s vocal ability. This just happens to be a pocket-gay who always seems to have misplaced his shirt.

    He’s cute, but judging on his face and body form, these are going to be his best years. Hope he enjoys the hell out of them.

  • seattle guy

    I for one think this guy is HILARIOUS! He’s got a real comic talent. And it doesn’t hurt that he can’t seem to find a shirt. No complaints here. Who says gorgeous guys can’t be funny? He reminds me of Ryan Reynolds. Keep ’em comin’, Craigery!

  • Huh

    I didn’t know imitating SNL skits or demonstrating any talent depended on being shirtless. Can he put on a freakin’ shirt?

  • gladys

    Sexuality aside, that first video is hilarious! Yes, he’s hot, yes, all the other crap….but thats some funny shit, right there…

  • Crispin

    And the Haterade doth floweth freely.

    Damn dudes where’s your whimsy and sense of fun?

    So anyone who has a video on Youtube in which they appear is a famewhore?

    Anyone who works out is vapid?

    Anyone who is proud of their body is self-absorbed?
    You cannot create a personality profile of a strange from a few random Youtube videos.

    Taste is subject and to my taste, the cutiepie has some great comic timing and obviously doesn’t take himself too seriously because he’s willing to have fun and be silly on camera (a pretty healthy trait in a 20-year old college student)

    You’re not forced to look even if Queerty posts 100 videos of him so why get all huffy about the posts being here.

    Talk about cultivating a culture of negativity, shaming, cruelty and judgment in which all kinds of bullying (online and off) thrives.

    If had a shirt on half of you would be screaming “Take your shirt off, show us your ass”

    If he was chubby you’d be screaming for him to put his shirt back on.


    College kids having fun is a good thing and if he is gay and he’s got the self-esteem to be on Youtube being silly with his friends GOOD FOR HIM!!

    Hopefully he won’t become some bitter, hateful, bile-spewing gay man 20+ years from now who lives to say nasty stuff about folks on the Internet just for the “fun” of it.

    People using “A&F-type” like it’s an insult. PLEASE!

  • alan brickman

    Just Honesty??? More like self loathing misery to me…What a bunch of jealous “Gay Bullies’ on here…..The slur on my name…how many years at payless shoe store did it take someone to come up with that?…

  • nineinchnail

    He’s so cute that I just want to put him over my lap and spank him.

  • nineinchnail

    @pete: Cut the kid some slack. He is 20 and cute. Weren’t we all self absorbed at that age? The problem only becomes truly apparent when you get to 30 and you are still self absorbed. Hell I live in a city FULL of self absorbed 30-40 years olds. Its disgusting and the main reason I DONT do bars. ;)

  • Rex D

    I can’t wait to see his first porn movie! Because you know it’s inevitable… they all turn to porn after their 20 mins of fame is over

  • Paul Mc

    @Hilarious “I don’t see the point in getting that buff to be that ladylike” – now I know what internalised homophobia means. Do muscles = masculine?

    That’s what makes him funny – the juxtaposition of male an female – gays get to mix it when we want to.

    If I want porn I go to xtube. If I want cute guys being funny then Craigery is the real deal.

    FYI – it’s called acting that thing he is doing. You know f**k all about him.

  • Hilarious

    @Paul Mc: Flip out a little more fanboy.

    The only reason you’re so irate is because you got hard watching some shirtless hottie be unfunny.

    Get over it.

  • Paul Mc

    @Hilarious – no, listen really carefully. I’m irate at you.

  • Hilarious

    @Paul Mc: No you’re irate over a straight guy! This gets funnier by the second.

    Apparently he’s not even gay.

    Enjoy your blue balls.

  • Paul Mc

    @Hilarious -no, listen really carefully. I’m irate at you.

  • Marcus

    He’s straight?? Uh, okay.

    Regardless, the guy is a looker.

    Wow, just wow.

  • Hilarious

    @Paul Mc: Uh huh, how old are you exactly? I mean getting all upset because everyone isn’t fawning over some attention whore on the internet is for teens and tweens.

  • L.

    @tazz602: +1 million. Moves better, too :)

  • iDavid

    ok shut him up and he’s a winner. But will take another date to the prom.

  • iDavid

    PS couldn’t take him out on the town either, I’d be too afraid he’d nelly up to the bar.

    I had the hottest guy in bed and we were go’in at it, and he started screaming in this high voice, “twist my titties twist my titties!” needless to say it was a dick dropper and I showed him the front door. There are some guys that you just don’t want to take the time to reprogramm.

  • Dude

    Straight? Far from it. The moves, the bod, the voice. Listen to him scream when his friend steps on his foot – like a little girl. I’d certainly make him scream like a little girl once I drop those pants and press his legs to his chest.

  • Aaron in Honolulu

    The only talent he has chosen to share on YouTube is his looks and body. Yeah, he’s HOT. But that’s just about it.

  • Robb Greene

    @Crispin: Thank you and A-MEN ! He’s absolutely delightful and I hope he goes far in whatever field he chooses – and I pray that it’s entertainment.

  • Imagine one day without hate

    Thank you for summing up my feelings in a much better way then I feel I can. Your comment really hit the nail on the head.

    I am sure that most of you posting are much younger then I am, but that has nothing to do with how totally wrong I feel a lot of your posts are.

    Besides a few comments on my youtube channel:(2(X)ist)I never post. But I felt I needed/wanted to on this site I accidentally stumbled on.

    Nelly…some guys that you just don’t want to take the time to reprogram…frivolous queen…I wish you guys who posted those and other negative, hurtful comments would watch a video entitled “The Butch Factor”. A documentary on what is considered a proper way to behave, to present your self, if you are gay. There is one subject to especially pay attention to. I’m sorry, I cannot remember his name. A friend (straight) bought me this for my Birthday and I have not watched it in a few months. The subject, who happens to be very feminine, made one point that stooped me cold, because I had never really thought about it that way. The same comments that have been posted on here were comments he had heard all his life from the “straight world”. He had been bullied, ridiculed, taunted, even threatened, because of his femininity. Until one day he said eff it and came to school dressed in a fashion that represented his true self. What hit home was that he said the same comments he had heard all his life from the ‘straight world’ were then brought into the ‘gay world’ by guess who? US! What defines masculinity? The way we dress? The Dodge Ram sitting in our drive way? The way we walk, talk? Catching the pass from the quarter back? If you think that is what defines a man, then I truly feel sorry for you.

    As for this wonderful young man that I just happened to come across (divine intervention?) last week on youtube lip syncing the Saturday Night Live skit. I say Thank you! You are very talented, funny, and yes gorgeous. But more important is what you say you are looking to achieve, and that is give laughter to other people. You succeeded for me, and I know hundreds of thousands of others. I am not going to go into my personal life. But I needed a laugh that day. I have not laughed since May 10th and I am grateful for the blessing you have been given, the blessing I received that day.

    Oh and Craigery….thanks for turning me on to Lady Gaga! At least to ‘Bad Romance’ (hard core Madonna fan). You and your FRIENDS were hysterical. I put friends in all capitals to emphasize the fact that I know you are a true friend to those you call your friends, I can feel it! And your laugh…well, right now it’s doing a better job then my meds.

    Keep on doing what you are now. It’s a real turn on to see you being true to your self. In fact, you remind me of myself at that age. I was hysterical and kept my friends in stitches. Only I hid my true self for over 32 years. I can’t get those back, nor the good men (my true love who was very feminine)who I gave up because I was scared of being true to myself.

    Our world is in trouble….can we fix it?

    Sorry for the long post!

    Be Proud
    Live Out Loud

    P.S. Check out a movie titled ‘The Bubble’. I have never had a movie affect me like this. I’m a huge movie buff and constantly on the prowl for a movie worthy to be added to my Library. I watched it the other night, and after it was over, I literally could not move for over 10 minutes. I replayed the last scene 2 or 3 more times. Don’t let the cover fool you. After you watch the movie it will make sense.

    It ended (from a sleepy memory) with voice over saying: Can we stop the hate? Maybe, but I doubt it.

  • Tyrone

    This kid is 20 years old and having fun! Plus he’s stupid hot. And he’s totally gay – he was out in high school and he’s out in college on campus here at UCF. How many of you can say the same when you were 20?

    Stop judging already! Gays need to stop tearing each other down and apart and start promoting each other and celebrating in success as a community!!

    Way to go Craig! You have a ton of supporters – don’t let the vocal minority stop you!

  • edfu

    It’s been said before, but I’ll say it again:

    We truly are our own worst enemies.

  • Sexy Rexy

    @pete: Famewhoredom is the new black.

  • Sexy Rexy

    PS. Craigery? What a fucking dumb-ass name!!

  • Penelope

    His name is Craig Morgan, Craigery was an old nickname. He’s from small town, Florida. He’s one of the most down to earth, sweetest guys I know. I died when I found out he was gay. He is absolutely hilarious. This video is not an indication of his talent. He has an old Youtube account from high school, but that has a lot of people including names, so I won’t be divulging that information. Classes with him in HS were the best. He’s funny, smart, sweet, and he was always willing to listen. He isn’t self absorbed, he just takes care of himself.

    He’s a wonderful person, don’t judge someone based on a little joke video with friends.

  • Pete Murphy

    I loved the videos. Pissed myself laughing. I too could feel envious of someone with such a great body and face, that can also have me in stitches but i am instead thankful for the pleasure it gave me. Good luck to him.
