Over the weekend, as we’re getting ready to see the likes of Cardi B and Beyoncé at Coachella, first we were greeted by a young man well on his 13th minute of fame — Mason Ramsey, aka the Yodeling Walmart Kid. Sure, we saw this good Walmart Yodeling Kid on Ellen, and we’ll probably see him again more times than we could count or would want to count, but today — today he is here at a serious music festival, going on in his mighty yodeling ways.
This is a weird fit for Coachella, right? A festival centered around being cool and youthful, and the good music ways. Am I wrong? Or is this great? Am I being an old fuddy-duddy wondering why Walmart Yodeling Kid is at Coachella? Look, I’m like 55. Or maybe 29. Possibly 80. So what do I know about the stylish ways of the cool? I just know this. Bring Gogol Bordello to Coachella and I will forgive Yodeling Kid’s arrival.
Actually, seeing a little kid in a cowboy hat backed by a band in front of a roaring audience is very awesome. Go, Mason, go!
I’m a music snob, but what do you think of the Yodel Boy at Coachella? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
