Do you remember the phenomenon of the Cup Song? This famous portion of the movie "Pitch Perfect" featured Beca (Anna Kendrick) clapping on a cup to the rhythm of the song "When I'm Gone" by Lulu and the Lampshades. The idea was picked up by pretty much everyone. In 2013, almost everyone on the internet was performing songs using cups.

That year, Kaden Vaughn Thompson, a resident of Ohio (USA), had fun reproducing moments of everyday life by involving the Cup Song. His Vine account is full of videos showing how he is forced to do the movements every time he hears the song, causing his life to become very messy.

The 19-year-old surfer is the victim of Acute Cup Song Syndrome.
