Viral videos come in waves. We love something and watch 1,000,000,000 videos about it and then as quickly as we fell in love with that thing, we are completely, 100 percent over it. Kitten videos were everything and then it was kind of like, eh. We loved flash mobs and proposal videos, we obsessed over pregnancy announcements and pandas playing in the snow, but now we need something new.
Welcome to the period of Gaston videos. As in, Gaston from Beauty and the Beast. And you better get on board or stay off the Internet. Because there’s no avoiding him.
uploaded a video of his 11-year-old sister challenging Gaston to an arm-wrestling contest at Disney World (yes, the very same Gaston who got schooled by a little girl for being sexist
and beat a tourist in a push up contest
, who is arguably more famous than the “real” Gaston at this point?).
“I’ve been [the arm-wrestling] champion since the day I was born. The doctor, he tried to check me for a pulse, ten seconds later they were checking him for a pulse,” Gaston warns the girl in the video. “I don’t think you want to do this.”
Suffice it to say, he got schooled. Now, who else has a viral video of Gaston?
