Although this clip of Shaun White on CNN is more than six years old, it's gotten new life on Reddit recently. And it's a good thing too, because it reminds us why we've loved the snowboarder ever since his awesome gold medal run in the 2006 Winter Olympics.

As the then 19-year-old White discusses the public's reaction to his half-pipe gold medal win, he says that a group of stewardesses rewarded him with unlimited drinks and snacks during a flight.

The CNN anchor, however, reminds White that he isn't old enough to drink. But White doesn't miss a beat and responds, "I'm talking about Mountain Dews, baby!"

Nice! Not only does White gloss over the implication of underage drinking, he also works in a plug for Mountain Dew, who he had an endorsement deal with at the time. Smooth, Shaun. Very smooth.
