LOL! YouTuber Steve
Ball” Parody Earns Him
Champagne From Miley!
Miley Cyrus had everyone talking about her controversial "Wrecking Ball" video when it debuted and it quickly became fodder for a number of reenactments; with everyone from Betty White to Hulk Hogan having a go.
But none was funnier or more popular than internet sensation Steve Kardynal's version.
With almost 85 million views on YouTube, his parody was so good, it help put “Wrecking Ball” back in its No. 1 spot on the Billboards Hot 100 list after nine weeks.
And In Touch can reveal the good deed did not go unnoticed.
"Last week Miley Cyrus's management company asked for my address so they could send me something,” Kardynal said via his twitter, "Thanks for the Champagne, Miley!” he added.

Not only did she send him a bottle of champagne, but an insider revealed to In Touch the gift also came adorned with a special note written by Miley herself.
“She just wrote on the box 'Miley and my pimps.' He thought it was the perfect gift," the source said.
The viral video features Steve in his tighty whiteys writhing around on a red couch, before taking to the wrecking ball in nothing but his birthday suit while the hit song plays in the background.
What made it original is that It was all documented to an unsuspecting audience on Chat Roulette, a website where you can interact with strangers via webcam. The song gained roughly 10 million views in just one day and looks like Miley is a big fan.
If you haven’t seen the video yet, here it is:
And Miley isn't the only one to get the Steve Kardynal treatment. Last year he did an equally-hilarious parody of “Call Me Maybe,” again with unsuspecting Chat Roulette users, which more than ten million people watched. We look forward to more videos from Steve, but in the meantime check out the “Call Me Maybe” video here:
