Kid President picks Gonzaga to win NCAA's 'March Madness'
With one ‘Pep Talk‘ and nearly 16 million views to date, ‘Kid President’ became a You Tube sensation.
His ‘president-ness,’ aka 9-year-old Robby Novak of Henderson, Tenn., is back again just in time for the NCAA Tournament.
And he’s ready to spread a little ‘March Madness 2014 Gladness,’ with some help from ESPN.
Novak picked his NCAA Tournament bracket in a video posted Wednesday on the sports cable network’s You Tube page. ‘Kid President’ is going with Gonzaga to win it all.
“I think we all need to make some choices,” Novak says in the video’s opening seconds. The intro is a clear reference to the way his viral Pep Talk video begins. (“I think we all need a pep talk…”)
Kid President gets some help from ESPN anchor Robert Flores to whittle down the field of 64 to 1 team and winner.
“You just like Michigan because of the comic book right, wolverine?” Flores asks Novak in one of the video’s more memorable exchanges.
“No,” Novak fires back. “I like the movie.”
With a signature dance, Kid President finally gives the Gonzaga Bulldogs his official championship nod.
The pressure is on Gonzaga.
Don’t let your president down.
