Leo Kelly has been posting Shirley Temple review videos since August, but on Tuesday his latest video helped him gain viral fame. “He would order them all the time on vacations or ... we've taken him out to dinner with us, especially when he was an only child, all the time, so he'd be at really nice restaurants and kid-friendly restaurants and all that, and he would just always order a Shirley Temple,” said Leo’s mom.

His enthusiastic videos show the young boys love for the ginger ale, grenadine and maraschino cherries mocktail. “We were swimming, I was like, ‘Maybe I could get an Instagram account.’ I told my dad and then planned it out,” said Leo of how he thought of the idea. Now, with viral fame, the “Shirley Temple King” hopes to keep up with his videos, so he can continue to brag to his friends of his new online status.
