10-year-old Scottish boy fluent in backward English

Scottish ten-year-old Cameron Bissett is syadiloh remmus ym rof adanaC ot gniog m'I.

Got that?

Bissett can say that sentence, "I'm going to Canada for my summer holidays," backward without pausing, or he can reverse the song from Mary Poppins, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, in a snap.

The brown-haired school grader, who doesn't appear to be possessed by any satanic forces, effortlessly translates sentences into backward speech in a YouTube video uploaded by his family that's been viewed more than 1.2 million times.

The clip was posted in April of 2012, but it's being shared by media outlets worldwide this week. The description explains how Cameron has been using his trick:

This is my 10 year old Son, Cameron, talking backwards. We discovered he had this amazing talent a couple of days ago. Apparently he has been entertaining friends at school for a couple of months now!

Cameron's father, off camera, chooses sentences, and then Cameron says them backward into an iPad app that reverses them again, playing them as normal English sentences.

A 14-year-old girl became a viral hit in 2012 because of her strange talent for back-talk. Alyssa Kramer, 14, appeared on the Today Show and Jimmy Kimmel last February after she uploaded a YouTube video in which friends say words to her and she snaps them back, in reverse.
