Some little kids love cartoon sponges. Some little kids love superheroes. And some little kids -- well, really this one little kid, Grayson -- love personal injury lawyers from TV commercials.
That’s Morris Bart, a lawyer in New Orleans who specializes in car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and basically every other accident where someone is injured “at no fault of their own!”
He does have a soothing voice. And makes great use of stock photos.
Apparently Morris Bart’s commercials play a lot in Louisiana, and Grayson’s mom, L’erin Dobra, says, “Before he could walk or talk, every time the Morris Bart commercial would come on, he was just fixated.” She told The Acadiana Advocate, “When he started talking he would say, ‘One call’ or ‘Bart, Bart, Bart, Morris Bart, Morris Bart.’”
“They were not his first words, but they were a close second and third.”
This year, to celebrate Grayson’s second birthday, Dobra threw him a Morris Bart-themed party, complete with a Morris Bart cake and a Morris Bart cardboard cutout. She even got Morris Bart’s office to send an autographed picture!
“Morris Bart’s office was incredibly kind considering I used their professional attorney website to inquire about a toddler’s birthday party,” she told BuzzFeed News.
It’s safe to say, of the two birthdays he’s had, it was Grayson’s best one yet.
“[Grayson] has his two photos on the nightstand,” Dora says. “He likes to give Morris Bart a kiss goodnight sometimes. He is literally obsessed with Morris Bart.”
Which is adorable. And very weird.
