  Teen yawns through US Bush speech
Updated 03 April 2004, 15.13
Tyler Crotty couldn't stay awake
A 13-year-old boy in the US is becoming famous after yawning and fidgeting his way through a speech by President George Bush live on television.

Tyler Crotty was stood behind Mr Bush on stage at the speech in Miami last month and was struggling to keep awake.

A big US TV show found the footage and showed it this week and now the world knows all about poor old Tyler.

According to his dad Tyler reckons being famous is "fun" who added he wasn't bored on stage, just tired.

Now Tyler has been snapped up by President Bush's campaign for re-election in the US elections in November.

For a while Tyler's dad Rich was worried people would tease his son for his behavior. but that's not been the case.

Instead Rich says other adults find the clip "hilarious" and children think it's cool that their pal is being shown on TV so often.
