    The best part was when he ducked down, quickly painted his face, and stood up with a 40" barrel 44mag and shot jimmy in his fuckin face.

    Can't help notice how familiar it is to that talk-show scene from the film "Joker".

    I am not hating on anyone, but they went too far by inviting this dude, his viral is really funny and cool, but why would someone invite him to do the same on a lateshow? His viral video is really simple

  • Reply Giaccommander October 13, 2019 at 10:00 pm

    15 is tough… all 15ies I see are mostly confused… why the world is so messed up. Or stareing on devices and trying hard to not get mobbed.
    I realy hope there are millions of Dallens out there which I just don´t see…

    Was expecting this kid to go nuts on a drum set but instead all i got was a kid hitting a base drum. Lame.

  • Reply Bryon Letterman October 14, 2019 at 2:36 pm

    He's not even drumming. He's moving around with his mouth hole open and didn't even carry a beat

  • Reply MMShaggy October 14, 2019 at 3:50 pm

    He’s exactly what America needed right now. In a world where Trump is pushing to outcast people for looking or being different he shows the beauty of our differences. They are to be celebrated not condemned.

    Jimmy kinda looks like deniro?!

    well. that was cool. i hope that Dallen gets long lasting positive fame for his enthusiastic drumming performance and doesnt end up a short lived meme.

    I love everything about this kid and it's not just because I was a drummer in marching band. Sideline percussion is not a glamorous duty but he decided to draw some attention and killed it. Bravo!
