Madden Landicho, 6, has a unique talent. He can recite every single country in the world in alphabetical order from memory, as the Washington Post reported.

His ability caught national attention last month when his mom Kristy Landicho shared a video of him listing off the countries in just about four minutes.

She prefaced the video with a caption that seemed to fend off anyone who might doubt her son's ability.

"For everyone who doubted his talent and said he couldn't recite them without reading them," she wrote. "Here's my kindergartner's answer back!"

If you're still here, you can go ahead and pick your jaw up off the floor.

Kristy told the Washington Post that her son first started to pick up the skill when he was three, learning primarily from watching YouTube videos on repeat.

Madden learned the countries from songs, like "Countries of the World," as Kristy told the Washington Post, although she noted that he prefers to list off the countries rather than sing them.

But he's recently taken his talent to the next level, Kristy told the outlet. In March, Madden turned 6 and his godmother got him an atlas. Madden has used his atlas as a tool to match each country with its respective flag, Kristy said.

And now since Madden has recently completed kindergarten it begs the question: Are you smarter than a soon-to-be first-grader?

Kristy Landicho didn't immediately return INSIDER's request for comment.
