Did You See This? The World’s Most Hard-Core 8-Year-Old

Juliet and Robin

Kids death-growl the darndest things. Yesterday YouTube user thetinaxo uploaded this music video for 8-year-old Juliet’s “First Hardcore Song,” and after racking in more than 4 million views in the first day, I think it’s fair to say that it’s a hit. Among the things Juliet snarls about in the Mum-produced video are her love for her dog Robert, her affection for her unnamed fish (smell notwithstanding), and, again, her love for her dog Robert. Just watch out for that stuffed animal mosh pit.

Correction, Jan. 20, 2012: This article originally misidentified the dog in the music video for Juliet’s “My First Hardcore Song” as “Robin.” The dog’s name is Robert.
