Some people call him “A real life Pakistani Pedro”. A reference to the character Pedro in the film “Napoleon Dynamite”.
Kashif Menon is a sandwich shop manager who came from Pakistan and has lived in the US for six years. He signed up to appear on the show “America’s Got Talent” and actually performed. He’s learnt English, and although his dancing could use a few improvements was able to mesmerize the audience and judges. I guess they’ve never actually seen a Bollywood film.
I thought it was pretty heartwarming, and whatever his faults or no matter how silly it looks it was pretty entertaining and definitely will make you smile. Give the kid a break.
Watch the video below and judge for yourself.
