A FACE-painted boy who went viral for his bizarre response to a TV reporter's question looks unrecognisable 15 years later.

Jonathan Ware, 10, shot to fame in 2007 after a clip of him went viral on YouTube.


A reporter in Portland, Oregon asked him if he liked his face-paint and Jonathan replied: "I like turtles."

The exchange was viewed more than 53 million times on YouTube.

Since then, Jonathan has started his own YouTube channel called ''It's Turtle Time"" with just over 1,000 subscribers.

Although he is now a YouTube gamer, he still seems to be obsessed with turtles.
