This time, he admits he will miss his mom.
Andrew Macias became Internet famous two years ago when he was interviewed about his first day of preschool. The boy, who was 4 years old at the time, was being interviewed by Courtney Friel of KTLA 5 in Los Angeles when she asked Macias if he would miss his mom. What followed was a shocking revelation for the toddler who, until then, wasn’t aware he would be going to school without his mom. Now, two years later, and with more experience under his belt, Macias is venturing into first grade and is ready for his first day.
Since first appearing on KTLA, Macias has not only become a meme, he’s also shown up in a “Tosh.O” skit. The original clip of Macias was used by eBay for a commercial. Even his mother, Patricia Macias, who was right off camera, was surprised at how quickly the clip of her son grew on the Internet.
“I’m like, ‘Oh, just an interview, nothing is going to happen,” Patricia told KTLA. “And then suddenly, an hour, two hours after – ‘Oh, he’s famous now. He went viral.'”
As for how Andrew is handling the upcoming school year, he confidently says “yes” when asked if he’ll miss his mom.
That’s right kids. It’s officially back to school time.
