A little kid got hit in the face with a basketball. Now he's an internet sensation. The new American dream.
Say yes to Crack Kid.
When Nathan Moszyk uttered the words "This kid's definitely on crack right now" while filming a kid getting hit in the head with a basketball and yelling "yeah!", Internet fame was probably still a distant dream. So he was probably surprised as anyone when the Vine he posted along with #KidOnCrack began going viral.

Crack Kid, who goes by the name Brady when he's not taking basketballs to the face, was suddenly a sensation, and people began making parody videos. Before long he was hobnobbing with celebrities:
There were trick shot videos:
There was random insanity.
Even Rebecca Black made an appearance.
Where Crack Kid goes next is anyone's guess. Mine would be obscurity, but what the hell do I know. Considering that Grumpy Cat is currently in pre-production on a Christmas Movie for Lifetime, it wouldn't shock me if next week CBS announces that Crack Kid will be taking over for Craig Ferguson.
