Here's how the 'apparently kid' took over the internet this week

Apparently he’s a big deal now.

YOU MUST HAVE seen the video by now. Noah Ritter, aka the apparently kid, gave basically the best interview ever broadcast on local news in the states.

Here’s a refresher.

The interview with Newswatch 16 currently has over 10.5 million views since it was uploaded to YouTube on Monday.

The internet went crazy for him, with mentions on social media shooting up after the video began to circulate.


They were largely positive, of course.

Now little Noah is in demand, with a bunch of follow-up interviews popping up online, each as entertaining as the next.

With all the attention he’s been getting, even celebrities such as Stephen Colbert are taking notice. Colbert showed the clip on his show on Wednesday, saying:

Oh my God. This kid is a natural born newsman. He’s already breaking the story of how the super-slide is half-death-scaring our children. At five years old, he’s already got the sincerity of Edward R. Murrow, the reassuring gaze of Walter Cronkite, and more gravitas than Steve Doocy. He’s already established the word apparently at his catch phrases. That is the sort of senseless repetition that marks a real news legend like Sean Hannity.

Ritter has also been the inspiration for a clothing line at the fair, and is now a song that is just EVERYTHING.

Buzzfeed have even made a dramatic recreation. Who knows where he’ll pop up next? It’s a surprise, apparently.
