The Guy Giving Chris Crocker a Run for His Gay Internet Fame

We have a certain amount of respect for those inclined to upload videos of themselves, at home, rambling to YouTube. These folks are shameless, and hopefully know full well that nothing on the Internet ever gets deleted. And then comes along John, 27, username “fatboygetdown,” with this message to those leaving him comments asking him whether he’s gay. It’s not a terribly riveting monologue, but John is on our radar because, three weeks ago, he uploaded the video below, which has been seen more than 967,000 times, and now he’s a famous person. On the Interwebs.

… which, for obvious reasons, received more views than this personal message for Ellen DeGeneres.
