Suburban Boy's Bar Mitzvah Invitation Goes Viral



    A Chicago-area boy simply wanted to entertain his guests with a music video invitation to his bar mitzvah, but he may have invited more people than he intended when his poppy video went viral.

    With almost 1 million video views on YouTube, the north suburban Deerfield 12-year-old Brody Criz and his family reached Internet stardom with their tribute to pop hits.

    The video features hits like “Happy” and “Royals” along with parodies of “All of Me,” “Let It Go,” and even “Blurred Lines.”

    In an interview with the budding star says he wants to have a career in comedy.

    "I love to make people laugh," he said. "It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I love to see when people have smiles on their faces, so, I [wanted] to go above and beyond with my bar mitzvah invitation."
