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.
