CRAIGERY MORGAN 2 X390 (COURTESY) | ADVOCATE.COM
CRAIGERY MORGAN 3 X390 (COURTESY) | ADVOCATE.COMWe see countless cute young dudes on the Internet with buff bodies. We always like to look and take in their beauty but we never learn a thing about most of these aspiring actors, models etc.

Craigery Morgan, a 20-year-old college student from Florida is cute and buff but he’s also a lot more: funny, talented and a brand new You Yube sensation.

His spoof of the Saturday Night Live sketch “Surprise Party” was posted to YouTube and he thought some of his friends might laugh, post it online, and a few days later, all would be forgotten.

Now, with 3.5 million views and counting, fans are begging for more skits without his shirt on.

Here is a bit of his chat with Advocate.com:

Right off the bat, you got a ton of attention — particularly from the gay blogs. Were you expecting that?
I was not expecting anything, and I feel lucky that I have had this opportunity at all. I am a huge fan of Lady Gaga, and she is a big promoter of the gay community. I feel very honored that the gay community has embraced me in a similar manner, at least for this video. I never expected to go viral, so I am honored that my work has brought so much laughter into the world.

How many hits do you figure you got solely because you recorded the video with your shirt off?
I only recorded the video with my shirt off because I’m a poor college student living in Florida. It gets really hot down here, even in the fall. Being shirtless is just something we do down here at home.

In a week when there was so much negative news in gay media about teens killing themselves after being harassed and bullied, your video was a bright spot. Are you comfortable having teens look up to you?
Absolutely. Bullying and harassment are signs of a weak soul. If my ability to be myself and to play my own unique mix of comedy without fear of what people will think gives others the courage to be themselves or to resist bullying and attacks directed toward them, then we all win.

Ideally, where would you like the success of this video to take you?
Ultimately, being on Saturday Night Live would be the best.
