You never know when a video is going to go viral or a meme will appear out of what seems like thin air. Right now the internet can’t get enough of the yodeling boy in Walmart.
Over the weekend out of nowhere a video of a small blonde child was posted on Twitter of him yodeling. He’s singing in the middle of Walmart, tapping his foot. We don’t know how this performance came to, if he always stands in the middle of Walmart signing at full volume or if the older woman in the background and the person filming where the only ones watching.
Now the internet is obsessed with yodeling Walmart boy. People even went and recreated his iconic yodeling at a Walmart. But who is yodeling Walmart boy? He’s 10-year-old Mason Ramsey.
There is an excess of tweets comparing his public performance of Hank Williams “Love Sick Blues” to other viral public concerts. Mostly he’s being compared to Halsey’s hilarious mall performance of a Blink 182 song.
Twitter is making jokes that they’re country fans now thanks to Ramsey’s Walmart yodeling. They’re also joking that he is a legend now and in a few years, there will be a biopic made about Ramsey’s rise to fame, from yodeling in Walmart.
People are remixing his yodeling into a song you can dance to at the club.
You know a meme is big when it get’s incorporated into another meme. Ramsey was quickly photoshopped into another meme, in maybe the fastest meme-inception I’ve ever seen.
Ramsey is calm cool and collected in his Walmart performance and that’s because it’s far from his first. A YouTube search of his name shows Ramsey performing at actual venues.
I like to think someone in Walmart recognized him and asked him to sing and he obliged. But now he’s a star so we may never know how his yodeling performance came to fruition.
