Tampa teen with autism creates funny videos to connect with others

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) - For kids on the autism spectrum, it can be difficult to find a way to communicate with others.

But one Tampa teen broke out of his shell by creating online videos.

Jack Emerick is a self-made videographer who tells his own story by crafting short films he calls, "Fart-O-Grams". 

The hilarious videos feature some of Jack's favorite cartoons recreated into his own work of art. 

"Most of the reasons I make the 'Fart-O-Grams' is to connect," Jack said.

The 19-year-old comedian said it makes him happy just to make people laugh.

"We really want a lot of understanding. There's a lot of people, a lot of families, out there like us with those stories. That's what would make a difference," Jack's dad Jim said.
