Viral YouTube music video called "All American Boy" written and sung by hunky 23 year old gay artist.
I just caught this video on HuffPo and its received over 600,000 views since it was posted last Tuesday. The singer song writer is named Steven Grand and he didn't expect the the many responses and views his video is getting. This is the description from the HuffPo article. ""All-American Boy" portrays a young gay man who misreads signals from an apparently straight "all-American" male friend. On a day hanging out with the gang, the two guys and a girl take off in a car. She drives, as the guys sit together in the back, with the straight man, at one point, falling asleep on the gay man's shoulder. Feeling like a third wheel, the girl eventually, angrily drives off, leaving the two men to pal around in the woods, where they end up stripping down and going skinny-dipping -- even sharing a quick kiss. Ultimately for the straight guy, it was just all in good fun. But for the gay man, it was something much more significant, and he is left dazed, confused and longing."
Wait til you see their bods! WooHoo!! Enjoy!
Of course they look like that...The "straight" guy looks like Cole Hauser.
The music itself is awful, but he's gorgeous.
If he sang more from his heart, it would work better. He's got a good voice, but it sounds like every other song on the radio...lots of emoting and no emotion.
The young gays will love it, as they know no better.
Well I think the video itself is what will make them love the music, R4. Hot guy. Unrequited love.
Has all of the elements of a cheesy song that kids love.
OMG, OP, you have TOTALLY broken this news! There was DEFINITELY not another thread on this exact same thi...oh, wait.
Unnatural body. Styled hair. Flimsy t-shirt. The people act and look like they're on some TV show, not real people. All that's a turn off.
And the object of his desire looks more like the coach than the quarterback.
true r11. They both look like they've long since moved away from home. the word "boy" is stretching things.
Are you going to support him just 'cause he's gay?
Sorry, I think he's doing this as a gimmick and not because he's struggling to break into country music's mainstream.
He's also over processed and looks nothing like an 'average' American guy, if such a thing exists.
This is porn without the nudity and he knows it, not the attempt to be a country star he's attempting to play it off as. It's essentially an Abercrombie ad.
LOL, it DOES look like an Abercrombie ad. I think that's what r10 was getting at too. I like the idea, it's just that the visuals do seem fake.
The fact that he's almost a porn whore with an overdone physique and a semi-erect cock has NOTHING to do with his immediate (and quickly fading) popularity.
That pic in the speedos is alarming.
If he looked more au natural and sang a good song....
It's pretty sad people are ripping on him when he's come out and trying to jumpstart a career, very well I think.
He has a great voice, and it's a great song. Whatever.
He was interviewed on Good Morning America this morning. See link...
For everything but his horrible songwriting. At least he's a very CUTE boy.
The versus have the same chords and melody of Gaga's "You and I".

No, you don't get a pass because you're Vadge, Vadge.
I hope he's a success if he's a nice person, but a country singer he's not. And his video is, as others have said, too glossy and "processed" and seems to try too hard.
I think he's doing more modeling than singing.
This is sort of a Rebecca Black video, only with a hotter person and gay.
A well deserved oh, dear. Sorry. I was berating a dancer when I typed "versus". Meant verses of course.
People are saying, why doesn't he be a country singer first, and a gay person second?
I think he cute and it's progress. another step for teh gays.
Cute or not, I'm already SO sick of this guy and this lame song.
Gorgeous guys...sad video....but there are other hotties around the campfire.
I hope he goes the Mackelmore route and makes music without owing his soul to a recording company.
Mackelmore isn't gay, but he's the best model for real independent artists today.
Terrible song. Really dreadful. Unfortunately AND fortunately, it's just as awful as every other pop country song on the radio today.
I really like the song and I'm TOTALLY in love with Steve Grand who is a GOD!!! The video is shit but he only spent $7500 on it. If some label is smart here, they'll sign this guy and redo the video. He is absolutely frickin gorgeous. He reminds me of a cuter, more macho version of Nick Adams from Priscilla on B'way. (Picture below)
OK, back to All American Boy.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
