Happy Friday! What better way to kick off the weekend than by lowering your self-esteem as you realize that despite all of your accomplishments at your ripe old age, this nine year old kid from Japan can totally kick your ass on the guitar. And no, I’m not talking about Guitar Hero or some other video game. This is the real deal.
Watch Yuto Miyazawa wow the crowd on The Ellen DeGeneres Show with his rendition of Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train.” Ignore Ellen’s embarrassing interaction with Yuto, where she employs the typical “using a loud and slow voice makes non-English speaking people understand me better” method before cameras. There must be something in the water over in Japan, since Yuto is one of the many Asian child prodigies capturing our attention via YouTube. He needs to partner up with the Super Kid Drummer and these kid DJs to make the most awesome band ever.
Did I mention Yuto is only nine years old? Yeah, what were YOU doing when you were nine? I know I was polishing my rock collection and picking my nose.
Wait, that was yesterday.
