"But I don't know who that is!" We're right there with you, Everyone Ever. He's been dubbed the male Selena Gomez, which is probably the last title any guy would want, just barely beating out "adult bed-wetter."

Adam Irigoyen is very well-known for such things as guest role on Wizards of Waverly Palace. And other things. We guess. The point is, he's going to be here on December 26 for all your little daughters to gush over. Consider it a post-Christmas gift. All the good stuff happens on exactly the day after Christmas, with the realization that Christmas won't come again for another 364 days.

All right, we're gonna level with you. We have no idea who Adam Irigoyen is. If you asked us to say the top five things we like about Adam Irigoyen, they would start with "well, his surname kind of sounds like irrigation, and that helped civilizations blossom so that's cool," and ends with a list of four beanie babies. Luckily for us there's a wonderful tool called Wikipedia, which was started by a wonderful tool whose goddamn face won't go away whenever anyone tries to read one of their articles. So without further ado, here are a few reasons why you should meet and greet Disney phenom Adam Irigoyen over at... hang on, gotta look up the location... the Ancient Spanish Monastery? Really? OK.

  • Born of Cuban descent in August 1997, which would make him annoying and 14. Cool.
  • Actor, singer, rapper, and dancer. Like Coolio.
  • Best known for his role as Deuce Martinez on the Disney Channel original series Shake It Up. Deuce Martinez is the most drug dealery name of all time.
  • Began acting at the age of 11. The New York Times called him "an actor."


know what, this isn't fun anymore. Look, the little dude is one of

those rising Disney stars, he also seems to be a pretty proud Latino

based on his Twitter feed,

so good on this little fucker. He's going to be at the Ancient Spanish

Monastery, which is the most conquistador-looking building in the New

World since the Taino Indian Rapeatorium somewhere in the island of

Hispañola, and kids are going to fawn all over him. It begins at 1 p.m.,

and at 1:30 p.m. the mayor of North Miami Beach will be giving him a

key to the city, so they're officially making him their boyfriend who

can come and go as he pleases.

In addition to watching a kid who wasn't even born when the first Jurassic Park

hit theaters receive the highest civilian honor a city can bestow, the

event will also feature balloons, a 20ft slide, and cotton candy. Add a

bounce house and it's a child's birthday party in the hood.


you got your child a shitty gift, redeem yourself (or cap it off,

however you see it) by taking them to meet superstar Disney teen

heartthrob Adam Irigoyen.
