A Jewish teen went viral on TikTok after his comedic response to a video of an older man saying, "Give me one good reason why you are not a Christian."

"Yarmulkopter. Half yarmulke, half helicopter," the Jewish teen, @jakedoesmusicsometimes, said. "Got it at the yarmulke convention. You may have heard of it, Yarmulk-con."

The TikTok video, with the caption "See you all at Yarmul-con 23," reached over 230,000 views with over 65,000 likes and 435 comments.

Almost all of the comments left on the video were positive feedback. The top comment, left by @novalsi, says, "Sir, that was at least three good reasons."

"Got it at the yarmulke convention. You may have heard of it, Yarmulk-con."

A lot of the comments also mentioned his outfit of choice, with him sporting Seinfeld shorts and a Camp Ramah T-shirt. While a few other comments mention how they will convert to Judaism just for that yarmulke.
