Vine star Brandon Bowen's celebrity impressions are so bad, they're brilliant


Vine star Brandon Bowen's celebrity impressions are so bad, they're brilliant

It's a good thing Brandon Bowen's 3.3 million Vine followers haven't been counting on him to deliver uncanny celebrity impressions.

The teenage social-media influencer did his best at VidCon 2016 to impersonate stars at the request of What's Trending co-founder Shira Lazar.

His Kanye West wasn't quite perfect. Or was it?

"Ay, yo, what's up! I'm Kanye West," emoted Bowen. "I don't know what Kanye West does. Pablo!"

Bowen admitted impressions are not his forte, but Circa's inclined to agree with Lazar, who asserted that "makes it even better."

Here's more evidence to support that theory:

  • Bowen as Shrek: "Oy! Get outta mah swamp. Donkey!"
  • Bowen as Donald Trump: "My name's Donald Trump. We're gonna build that wall and say all the crazy things, because I'm a crazy old man."
  • Bowen as Justin Bieber: "Ay, yo, what's up, guys? Justin Bieber here. Baby! Uh, sorry, sorry. Is it too late now to say sorry? I dunno."

Bowen found fame through his humorous posts on Vine, Instagram and other social-media platforms.

Lazar also asked Bowen about blocking out the haters. Check out his response on What's Trending.
