Casper’s Own KaMaKaZiE KiD Sets New World Record! [VIDEO]

Touché, Mr. Troutman. Touché.
Not only is Levi a little "off", he also has a heart the size of Texas. This whole stunt is the result of his November coat drive, in which he promised to "give Casper something it has never seen before" if he raised 250 coats in his inaugural drive. He raised over 450.
