Keenan Cahill & Glee YouTube Video Smash: Internet Phenomenon

Way back in November last year we reported on teenager, Keenan Cahill, who had become popular on YouTube with a series of videos of him lip-synching to hit songs by the likes of Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. At that time 50 Cent had just actually appeared in the latest Keenan Cahill video and Keenan had become an Internet sensation. Keenan has become even more well known during this year and his latest video with the cast of Glee is another smash success.

We told how Keenan had a rare metabolic disorder, Maroteaux-Lamy Syndrome but how this did not seem to be holding him back in any way. 50 Cent had got involved in the video with Keenan thanks to Chelsea Handler’s show. Handler had seen Keenan’s YouTube videos and flown him out to interview him on the “Chelsea Lately” show where 50 Cent then filmed the video with him. Somehow though, we can’t imagine that even Keenan could have imagined what a hit his lip-synching videos would become.

Several dozen Keenan YouTube videos later, the new Glee video, which you can see below this story, features cast members Harry Shum Jr., Dianna Agron, Darren Criss and Jenna Ushkowitz and of course Keenan himself. The latest video was brought to our attention by Charlie White over on Mashable and it has already gone viral with over a million views so far. The staggering part of all this though is that Keenan Cahill now has his own YouTube video channel, BeenerKeeKee19952, and total viewings of those videos now number over 272 million, and yes you did read that right.

The latest video with some members of the cast of Glee features the Katy Perry song, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)” and was filmed after the Glee stars recently completed the Glee Tour, according to Leslie Goldberg of The Hollywood Reporter. Cahill really has to be viewed as an Internet phenomenon now and the teenager from Illinois obviously has a penchant for Katy Perry as he previously ‘performed’ her “Teenage Dreams.” It seems that A-listers will soon be fighting over the chance to perform with Keenan and others who’ve had the pleasure so far include David Guetta and Brian Wilson and Cody Ross of the San Francisco Giants.

Take a look at Keenan Cahill’s last video with Glee and tell us what you think. For me it’s Keenan’s facial expressions that really make these videos and this latest is another enjoyable one to add to the list. Let us know what you think by sending us your comments.
