Footage of a little boy using an iron bar as a microphone while belting away at a construction site in Chengdu has gone viral on Weibo, as web users have jokingly dubbed him the future of Chinese heavy metal music.
In real life, both of the boy’s parents are workers and he has been to a dozen of different construction sites around China with them for the past two years. He has only gone to kindergarten for three months and plans to go back to his hometown for school next year.
While we wouldn’t necessarily categorize him a “heavy metal” star in-the-making, he’s still cute as all hell. Rock on and be excellent, little dude.
