ava hot mess

The world is obsessed with this child’s flawless impression of hot mess millennials… and so are we!


A little girl has perfectly spoofed that annoying friend we all have in our lives—the one who shows up atrociously late, fails to produce a valid apology, and goes on to wreak further havoc in the world.

“I don’t follow rules… I follow dogs… on social media.”

Ava Ryan, AKA one of the internet’s greatest gifts, plays “Charlene, your hot mess friend” in a video her mother, Katie Ryan, posted to Instagram and Facebook.

On of the the videos starts with the girl fully in character, proudly announcing:

“It’s me, Charlene, raise your hands!”

And escalates to full blown funniness.

“I’m sorry I was eight hours late for brunch yesterday,” she begins, her eyes widening. “I… I… I forgot. I’m speechless.”

She continues to reveal that she “doesn’t believe in being on time” and regales her pals with tales of how she’s “just so busy” – although, in an aside to the camera, she admits that her industriousness is not necessarily a good (or true) thing.

Her videos have had millions of views and been syndicated on many sites but we’ve found her actual account and it’s too funny for words.

Her latest one… I can listen to Despacito alone… is just perfect.
