Get you a friend who will do this.

Posted on

On Thursday, Chlamon sang "Happy Birthday" to his friend Jacob Torgeson during their economics class and it was really something.

If my homies don't do this for me for my birthday then they ain't my homies

Chlamon said that Torgeson asked him to sing to him and that his friend was "happy" about the song.


"I wasn't expecting it to blow up," Torgeson told BuzzFeed News. "It was just my best friend singing me 'Happy Birthday' for my 18th."

People had a lot of feelings about the rawr-filled rendition.


Some viewers called out their friends to warn them what was coming.

@Curvables @brvwski Gabby prepare for a voicemail like this in 357 days

@nwhite623 @gelatolovato @Curvables @moreclairity @sopheyscope i'm gonna do that for your bday

Another person imagined how someone might respond to Chlamon's version over the phone.


And this person made a threat.

@amandatctt @Curvables If you do that, our friendship will cease to exist ๐Ÿ˜‚

A classmate also posted more footage of Chlamon sing-screaming.

@Curvables @AndrewBriones24 and i feel partially responsible for his fame
