Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Here's a video making the rounds. TexasExes.org has the backstory:

UT freshman Jacob "Gator" Weaver has a talent for staring that has turned into a YouTube sensation.

"Stare of the Gator," filmed by UT junior Craig Murphy, shows Weaver approaching unsuspecting people on the UT campus only to stare at them, mouth agape. Since its upload on Tuesday, the video has garnered more than 72,000 views and appeared Thursday on the Huffington Post. ...

"It is pretty awesome," Weaver told the Texan. "All my family knows about it and everything, which is kind of weird."

Kind of weird: That's a pretty good description, I'd say.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
