Vine phenomenon turn child star, of sorts, Lil Terrio has gone global (or national, at least). His most recent feat was a recent appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show, where he discussed his rise to fame, weight loss goals, and even taught the host a new dance.

Terrio was soft-spoken, but charismatic at the same time, as he donned a robe from the show’s dressing room. When asked how he became popular, the six-year-old replied, “I was outside and I was playing basketball, and Maleek was like, ‘I’m fin’na record him,’ and I just went global.” These days, Terrio’s dance and “Ooh Kill Em” catch phrase have been mimicked and recited by the likes of former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson and Washington Wizards guard John Wall.

During the discussion, Hall was sure to bring up a topic many on the outside looking in are concerned about: Terrio’s heightening weight. “I’m losing weight, but I’m gaining money,” said the kid, who promised his fans that he’d adopt a healthier lifestyle if he received 250K retweets on Twitter.
