Someone at RCA is wielding far too much power.
Little Chris, the friend no-one had from Channel 4's Rock School, has been handed a real-life, bona fide record deal worth half-a-million quid.
The 15 year old, who seemingly made everyone barring record execs cringe with his whiny pop-punk poetry, was selected by KISS's Gene Simmons to front the band - The Class - in the series that ran over the winter.
He says, "I can't believe it. When they offered me the deal I genuinely thought it was a big joke."
Yep. It kinda caught me on the back foot, too.
A spokesperson for RCA predicts that Chris, who counts Towers of London as his favourite band, will be a huge success in the UK.
"Little Chris is best described as a grown-up Bart Simpson after he discovered rock music.
"He has a massive personality. He's like a cartoon character in a good way."
Take the money and run son. If you put enough distance between them and you you could be in Mexico before they realise what they've done.
