Mowing the lawn of the White House is a pretty big deal, especially for an 11-year-old kid. It's the cradle of American democracy after all.
Earlier this year, Frank Giacco, who prefers to be known as FX, wrote a letter to President Trump offering his lawn mowing skills to the most famous house in the world.
Washington Examiner report that FX was prepared to do the job for free declaring:
Dear Mr. President, it would be my honor to mow the White House lawn for some weekend for you.Even though I'm only 10, I'd like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for.I admire your business background and have started my own business

Can't really argue with that determination, and the White House soon granted him his wish.
FX's dedication and hard work soon gained the attention of the internet, after he made a very public appearance in the most peculiar way.

This brief appearance on international television birthed an army of memes, mostly mocking Trump for his unusual stance in a photo.

There was more than one IT reference.

Somehow the image is oddly fitting even without FX in the shot.
Despite the attention FX showed peak professionalism.
You just can't fake happiness like this. This kid is out here having the time of his life https://t.co/Xg0ttd8ih9 — az (@az)
He didn't even flinch, even when the President tried to approach him.

They even compiled a compilation video of FX's day at the White House.
