Chubby Cuppycake Boy

If you're one of the 75 million people who viewed "Chubby cuppy cake boy" (or 3 million who watched "Cuppy Cake Sam") singing or possibly lipsyncing "Your My Honeybunch (The Cuppycake Song)" on YouTube since 2008, you might be interested to know what he's up to now...

A Recent News Story

Chubby cuppy cake boy


A Wasilla boy with a chronic illness is on a mission to spread kindness across the country and he isn't shy about sharing his story. Sam Allred has actually written a book about what it's like to be a child with a rare kidney disease.
At 13 years old Sam is not quite four feet tall. The medicine he takes to fight his disease has stunted his growth and plumped his features. Sam looks different, a fact that was hammered home to him at an early age.
When Sam was eight years old his sister posted a video of him on YouTube singing "The Cuppycake Song."
The video went viral and people posted comments from around the world. Most found Sam's chubby cheeks adorable but some people made nasty comments about his looks, not knowing he was sick.
Sam says some of those comments brought him down.
"So people just think, 'oh he's fat,'" says Sam. "And that his parents don't care about him, but it's not our fault."
But instead of lingering on feelings of hurt, Sam turned his situation around. Not long after the video he announced to his mother that perhaps he may have gotten his illness so he could help other people.
More about Sam, and pillows he sends to children in need, at KTVA.

Really great story. Glad you posted this, BV! Way better than political junk (or crappy music, for that matter)

This kid has more stage presence and talent than most of the crappy tappy Lo Fi bands showcased on this website. Don't fuck with the Chubbles.

My dream , to be a diseased meme, to be mocked by the flocks upon faceless fecal streams...

Sorry, I'm in a Morrissey mood. I like this chubby kid, he's a sweetheart.

The link to a alleged story on this kid doesn't exist - What is the resource for the information on this "chubby kid"? I see a lot people telling sobbing stories, but nothing to verify anything is the truth or fact.
The fact is we can see he's fat, that's all. Until some one can present credible evidence for all the "poor ol' sick boy" stuff it all just bull shit.

I hope u find a cure soon, kid! Prayers are going up. Forget the haters, cuz Jesus loves you.

Question. Had an older man that I work with tell me Sammy Allred killed a girl drunk driving. Cops found him down the road because it was a hit and run. Does anyone know if this is true.

Bob, what a real jerj you are. If you had done any homework at all you would know that this kid is real. I know him and his family personally. Try this link, asshole.
Last comment from annonymous, you are also an ass. He currently is only 15 yrs old. Never had a drink or driven a car. Get your facts straight before opening your mouth.
