What Is the Walmart Yodel Boy Meme?

Salt Bae Who? "Walmart Yodel Boy" Is Shaping Up to Be 2018's Best Meme Yet

It's truly only a matter of time before 10-year-old Mason Ramsey makes a well-deserved appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The young boy is taking the internet by storm after video footage surfaced of him showing off his yodeling chops in the middle of a Walmart in Harrisburg, IL. In the now-viral clip, Mason belts out the lyrics to Hank Williams's "Lovesick Blues" while engaging in some offbeat foot-tapping (and standing in front of a lovely selection of air mattresses). Having donned a red bow tie, a sizable belt buckle, and clunky boots, Mason puts his impressive yodel on display for his fellow Walmart shoppers, and to be honest, the kid's got talent that anyone — even nonyodelers — can appreciate.

When the internet caught wind of Mason's legendary singing skills, the Illinois boy went through what we like to call "the meme treatment": almost instantaneously, dozens of Twitter users found themselves cracking wise about his yodeling on social media. Below is just a sampling of the LOL-worthy meme, but watch out, Salt Bae — "Walmart Yodel Boy" is here to snatch your spotlight faster than you can sensually sprinkle salt on a hunk of meat.











No one can seem to get Mason's yodeling out of their heads.









A few dedicated fans went so far as to imitate him in their local Walmarts.



Some people even made their own interesting remixes.







One person made a Sims version of Mason's viral video.

The internet thinks he could be a serious threat to other artists.



*Waits for official confirmation of Mason's first musical tour*
