"Hey, what's that kid in the background doing?"

We're guessing at least a few people watching the KLAS Las Vegas news last Thursday asked that question, and the answer is very simple: He's going viral.

The broadcast segment may have been about a new shopping center opening, but the story that spread across the Internet over the weekend was 15-year-old Brendan Jordan's commitment to werking it.

And no, news reporter Patranya Bhoolsuwan didn't mind being upstaged.

In an interview with the Today Show, Brendan explained his motivation. "I just saw a camera, and did my thing," he said. "I was imagining myself as if I were Lady Gaga, and that no one could destroy me."

That story certainly checks out. Here's the video cropped to focus squarely on Brendan – as it should be.
