Remember Caine Monroy? Caine is the 9-year-old star of the short film “Caine’s Arcade” that’s been seen more than three-million times in just under two days.

As of the time this story was published, Caine’s internet fame has gotten him $135,913.16 for his college fun.

The website for Caine’s arcade includes a small donation box on bottom right hand corner of the site and apparently people have been donating!

Forbes Magazine just went ahead and beat everyone to the story. They’ve declared Caine “will be a billionaire in 30-years.” Let’s hope that’s true. We need more Latino billionaires under 40.

“He doesn’t really understand how big this is,” Caine’s dad, George Monroy, told ABC News on Thursday. “He sees himself on the screen and he laughs. He doesn’t understand how everyone is just pouring their hearts out to him.”
