This Teen Is Blowing Up on Online After Becoming BFFs With a Deer Called 'Money'

Kelvin Peña, a 17-year-old from Pennsylvania, happens to be best friends with a deer he named “Money”. Thanks to his adorable videos of Money and the rest of his deer squad, Kelvin is now going all kinds of viral

The origin of their friendship is a story old as time: one day, Money came to Kelvin’s house looking for snacks, and Kelvin obliged. Soon after, Money told the rest of his deer crew that there was this kid named Kelvin who had hooked him up with some snacks, and that they should go over there, too. And thus, the greatest squad in teen friendship history (sorry not sorry, Taylor) was formed. Kelvin said of his friendship with Money to Buzzfeed, “One day at my cousin’s house, he was feeding Canela (another local deer Kelvin named) and I thought it was really cool. When I got home I saw Money in my backyard, walked up to him, and noticed he didn’t run away, so I felt we had a connection. … I went inside and grabbed him an apple, and he ate it. I expected him to leave but he kept following me, so that’s when I grabbed some Club Crackers and started feeding him. His name is Money ‘cause I feel like he deserves that name – money makes me happy and he did too, so I felt like we had a friendship.” Ah, yes. There’s no better friend than money, except when it’s not around — then it’s the realest enemy you’ll ever know.

The story when viral after a video of Kelvin giving Money some crackers hit, and of course the internet ate that sh*t up. He then made more videos of himself and his and Money’s other deer friends, and the internet was all nom nom nom on those videos too. So here we are. With his newfound fame, Kelvin has started selling Money T-shirts in the hopes that “Money and his deer family can have some nice, tasty, healthy snacks”. (But he’ll probably be keeping some of that cash for himself, since we already know that he loves money as much as he loves Money.)

The next step is obviously Disney doing a Snow White remake starring Kelvin as the woodland beauty who befriends the animals of the woods and lives now with seven dwarves but seven deer and they all get lit (but not really) and play basketball (but not really) and live happily ever after. Of course, that fairy tale will only last until Kelvin meets a girl and ditches his deer friends and one of them gets hit by Kelvin’s car as he drives his pregnant wife to the hospital and then he realizes that deer was his old friend Money and he has to mercifully put him out of his misery! Haha, just kidding, this guy’s gonna be on Ellen within a week, and Money and squad will get thousands of dollars worth of healthy snacks, and probably a few Ellen T-shirts, too.
