The video got an amazing response as it gained more than half a million views. Later, it reached Reddit and other platforms such as SoundCloud and Facebook. By 2016, the video took the internet by storm as audio remixes and memes.
After the video got viral, people began looking for the kid in the advertisement. Finally, it was discovered that the Kazoo Kid was no longer a kid, but has become a man and goes by the real name of Brett Ambler.
Ever since the mysterious boy in a blue t-shirt has been relishing the fame he has been getting. After his identity was revealed, he did a small Q&A session on Reddit, where he admitted that he still can play the kazoo very well.
Ambler occasionally shares videos of him singing and playing guitar and kazoo through his Instagram handle, where he currently has over 4.9 thousand followers.
