Tampa Bay's 'Little Fear' Is New Internet Sensation

Nicknamed 'Little Fear,' the 10-year-old led the Bucs cheerleaders in a dance routine and will be featured on a morning talk show today. How about renaming him 'Fearless'?

It's not enough that 10-year-old Christian Bottger led the Tampa Bay cheerleaders in a Gangnam Style routine.

Or that the Largo boy has landed an appearance on the Today Show (this morning at 8 a.m.).

It's Christian's display of utter confidence before thousands of screaming fans, shown at the end of a YouTube video that has gone viral overnight. The fifth-grader holds out his arms wide, like a pint-sized politician. Fans can't seem to get enough.

This kid from Largo is going places.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, videos of Christian's Gangnam Style routine are making the charismatic kid a star. "He likes the attention and he just loves performing," Christian's dad told the newspaper. "He likes being out in front of everybody."

Christian's talent comes from hard work. He takes dance lessons. He also dances regularly with the Bucs cheerleaders and has performed his Gangnam routine at three games so far.
