Internet-Famous ‘Teen Diva’ Brendan Jordan Becomes American Apparel Model


Las Vegas teenager Brendan Jordan was filmed on camera vogueing behind a journalist who was reporting from a local mall opening and became an instant Internet sensation.

After videobombing the news segment, Brendan became an American Apparel model and proved that dreams come true to those who are brave enough to pursue them.

“I just saw a camera, and did my thing. I was imagining myself as if I were Lady Gaga, and that no one could destroy me.”

Since he was wearing AA leggings in the clip, the retailer chose him as the star of their new campaign.

The ad’s text reads:

“Brendan is from Las Vegas, Nevada. He’s half Peruvan (his dad was born and raised in Peru) and he learned Spanish from his extended family that helped care for him. He enjoys taking photos, shopping and collecting Disney memorabilia. In the future Brendan hopes to have his own TV show and design a clothing line. His biggest inspirations are his great grandmother Lucy and Lady Gaga. We were inspired by Brendan after seeing his fearless act of spontaneity and applaud his efforts with the LGBTQ community. His favorite styles of ours include the Clear PVC Circle Skirt and anything high-waisted.”

However, the teen is not just a model.  Brendan has campaigned to raise awareness of Spirit Day, which aims to stop the bullying of LGBT youth. Way to go, kid!
