The Guy From Quebec’s Most Notorious Viral Video Is Selling T-Shirts With His Face On Them
Awaille Claude, continue comme ça!
After 13 years out of the spotlight, that guy from Quebec's most notorious viral video, "Un mot pour Kevin," is back in the public eye selling t-shirts with his face on them.
Now with long hair and a beard, Claude Asselin, whose "Awaille Kevin" was heard around the world (and viewed 1.8 million times), is looking great in a simply sweet T-shirt from Poches & Fils.
If you're sitting there wondering who and what the hell we're talking about, follow us while we take a trip to Quebec YouTube some 13 years ago when times were simpler and the internet wasn't a living nightmare.
The premise of "Un mot pour Kevin" is a simple one. Kevin was having a birthday party in his backyard and one of his friends took out his digital camera (remember those?) and filmed the party-goers giving well-wishes to Kevin.

Even though the whole video is a masterpiece of Quebec culture, one part that's transcended the video itself is Asselin's impeccable quote: "Awaille Kevin, ostie, continue comme ça!"
It's this iconic moment that's been immortalized on a T-shirt 13 years later. The shirt, designed by Quebec artist Matt Chessco, is for sale right now for $39.99.
As for Kevin, we all know what he's getting for his birthday this year!
