Kelly - the new Patsy
Liam Sullivan is the actor who plays the obnoxious teenage Kelly, shoe geek and star of, YouTube. Viral video enthusiasts love "Shoes," where Kelly, sings a choppy techno song about shoes. Estimated to be viewed more than 8 million times Kelly latest video, "Let Me Borrow That Top," has been viewed more than 3 million times. The inspiration for the character came when Liam was at a party and met a girl obsessed with shoes. She talked for a while about how much she spent on shoes, and then pointed to her own shoes, saying "These shoes cost $300." Now that’s Kelly’s catch phrase. Kelly and her songs, have launched dozens of fan groups many of which dressed up as Kelly for Halloween.
