This 2-year-old is getting nothing but net and his popularity is growing rapidly after his parents posted a video of his trick shots on YouTube, which has garnered millions of views.

Titus Ashby, now 2 years old, went viral after a YouTube video of himself titled Unbelievable Little Kid Does a Trick Shot , gained traction on social media and score him an interview on the TODAY show and a shout out on Good Morning America this week. As of Thursday afternoon, more than 2.1 million people viewed the video on YouTube, which was posted Feb. 3.

Titus amazingly scores basket after basket, even laying on his back and scoring shots someone eight times his age could easily miss. The videos were shot between when Titus was between 18 and 24 months old.

Titus' dad, Joseph Ashby, wrote in the video's description: "He began shooting baskets shortly after learning to walk, we started filming some, and then got totally carried away. This is the trick shot video that makes other trick shot videos look like a bunch of old guys who should have something better to do -- like retire, turn up their pacemakers, or join an assisted living facility."
