ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A Wasilla kid has become on online celebrity for what started as a joke and has now changed the way he views the world.
Sometimes Sam Allred wishes his home video never went viral on Youtube mostly because he became known as the "Chubby Cuppy Cake Boy."
Because of the world-famous lip sync video, he was sought out by the Tyra Banks show in 2009. He and Banks sang a duet mimicking the video and talked about what it's like to be cast into childhood stardom.
The 11-year-old now has a slight crush on Banks and refuses to wash the Tyra-shaped make-up smudged from the jacket he wore that day.
His guest appearance on "The Doctor's" helped him explain why he's short for his age and seems overweight. Sam has a kidney disease called IgM Nephropathy a condition where the immune system attacks the kidneys.
