Yup, we couldn't believe it either!

Ah 2007, what a time to be alive. Jelly shoes were a thing, Steve Jobs announced the  iPhone was in production, and Chris Crocker went viral for defending Britney Spears‘ not-as-good-as-we’d-hoped comeback, performing ‘Gimme More‘ at the MTV VMA’s.

Well, to say Chris has blossomed since then, would be a complete understatement – he’s got super HOT. And we’ve got all the pics here for your enjoyment.

Yup, we remember super Britney fan Chris as he shouted, screamed and hysterically cried: ‘Leave Britney alone‘ in a video posted to his Youtube account. His motive was to get the world to listen, and address those who had criticised her massively hyped, actually a bit disastrous performance.

Refresh your memory with the vid here:

We remember Chris as a streaky bleached blonde with a very dodgy haircut, reminiscent of Peter Andre’s nineties curtains, and a heck of a lot of eyeliner. Which smudged a lot after all the crying obvs.

He had ugly crying face down to a tee, even rivalling Kim Kardashian‘s ugly crying face, and that’s difficult.

But like a caterpillar turned into a butterfly, he’s ditched all of the above, and by the looks of it, got himself a new stylist too.

Looking grown up, ripped and sporting just the right amount of stubble, Chris is totally unrecognisable.

Late night thoughts.

Wowzas. Since he found internet fame, his career prospects have been varied. In 2011, he released his first EP called ‘The First Bite’ on iTunes, and he also had a brief stint starring in a different type of video, porn.

His now identifies himself on his Instagram account as a comedian and a singer.

Talk about #transformationtuesday!
