An 11-year-old has shot to viral stardom thanks to his unique reaction to winning free chicken for a year. And, we couldn't relate more.


Sam Caruana won the prize after waiting in line to be one of the first 100 customers at a new Chick-Fil-A restaurant in Cheektowaga, New York – so a local news outlet caught up with him to ask how he was feeling.

“Well, uh, I'm here in the freezing cold getting free chicken sandwiches," Sam told local news outlet WGRZ. “Because the food tastes great. I mean, it's chicken, fried chicken, fried chicken. I like fried chicken!"

Clearly a lot of people found Sam's explanation relatable, as it has been viewed over five million times since it was posted to Twitter by reporter Leanne Stuck early on Thursday morning.

The response was too relatable to come from an 11-year-old.

Sam's prize consists of a free Chick-Fil-A meal every week for a year, awarded by the restaurant to the first 100 people who line up outside their new outlets.

Other people were relating his response to other kids that made the news.

Noah Ritter from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, shot to fame in 2014 after an interview with WNEP-TV.


With over 41 million views, Sam has some way to catching Noah just yet.

But in the mean time I think we could all use some fried chicken.
