What an odd thing to videotape. I agree with getting the kid some real drums, starter sets are pretty cheap.

The titles for most videos around this place are about as factual as a fox "news" report.

He`s no Mike Portnoy, but then, neither was Mike Portnoy at his age. Hell, buy him a set of drums!

Imagine being his neighbour!

Anyway, better that he found the washing machine open and not a gun safe.

musically talented kid is musically talented. does the fact that he`s autistic have anything to do with that? i don`t think so. music (and coincidentally math, because math and music are intertwined) is a gift and here it seems his gift has been realized early in life.

good for you, drummer boy. i hope to hear your work on the radio some day.

Great display of natural talent with rhythm. I wish my autistic nephew was more musically inclined. He can certainly tell when you`re off key by even a little bit because he will put his hands on his ears and sing it right. But it seems his true calling is art

Autism has a huge spectrum of conditions. Some of the most talented and well behaved kids I know are autistic.

Just a kid who was clearly born with musical ability. Not everyone has it but it`s common enough that I don`t think it makes him special. I took to the guitar like a duck to water when I was 10 yrs old but I don`t think it`s anything special, just came to me naturally like drums/percussion to this kid.

"Looks like the trolls on this site don`t understand what Autism is."

I don`t think you can blame piperfawn considering the video`s title on youtube claims he`s autistic, and the title here is exactly the same as that youtube title.

So therefore this is nothing special. ALl it is is a normal kid who has been having percussion lessons for over a year.

Move along.

If he was actually autistic this would actually be pretty amazing. Looks like the trolls on this site don`t understand what Autism is.

He`s not autistic. Do some research first.

Very talented at something at a really young age that older people can`t do as well. He`s a witch! What witches don`t exist? Then he`s autistic! That`s the only reasonable explanation of why he is naturally talented at something right?

The original video states:

Published on Sep 23, 2012
"Whirled Beat". Boy (age 10) enjoys exploring the undiscovered, percussive sounds of household appliances. He also owns a Pearl drum kit, has been taking lessons for over a year, but is mainly self-taught in general percussion. His main inspirations are Neil Peart and Buddy Rich.

Also, there have also been some re-posts of this video on YouTube and other sites containing false information in the title regarding an alleged condition. This rumor first spread due to a misunderstanding by a person who linked to this video a few days ago on reddit.com.

Just because a young kid is good at something doesn`t make him autistic. Just because some loser reposted the youtube video with a different title doesn`t make him autistic either.

What does autism have to do with this kid being able to drum a wicked beat?
