Currently climbing YouTube’s popularity ladder, a video by SoulPancake about whipping the world into shape is on its way to becoming a viral sensation.

The video is delivered in the form of a pep talk by a little boy in a football locker room and on a field as he poses questions and encourages people.

According to the creators of the video, the world is in need of not just a kick ass pep talk delivered by a child, but some encouragement.

“We all need a little encouragement every now and then. Kid President, knowing this, has put together a video you can play each morning as you wake up or to share with your friend who needs a kick in the right direction. Take a moment and spread some encouragement,” says the video description.

Dedicated to his friend Gabbi, who is currently battling cancer “like a baws” Kid President (as he is known) says that: “It’s everybody’s duty to give the world a reason to dance.”

The group behind the video has also launched a line of t-shirts with the words “NOT COOL, ROBERT FROST” — a catchphrase used in the video referring the Frost’s poem The Road Not Taken.

Kid President has cast quite a wide social net with a Twitter account that boasts more than 10 000 followers, a growing Facebook fanpage and a website to boot.

From his tiny Oval office, the Kid President encourages you to share his video with those that encourage you. This is one of the most adorable things we have seen in a while.

SoulPancake is connected to The Office star Rainn Wilson as part of his mission to get the world to open their hearts without feeling like idiots.
