Move over, internet-breaking yodeling kid. This emotional duet between an Elvis impersonator and an elderly woman is the best thing that’s ever emerged from the aisles of a Walmart store.

Dressed in the King’s classic white jumpsuit, the unidentified impersonator was serenading shoppers over Memorial Day weekend with a rendition of “Can’t Help Falling in Love.” He wandered around the Rogers, Arkansas, store, interacting with customers — and rubbing one bald man’s head — before catching the woman’s eye.

The impersonator then sauntered up to the woman as she sat in her wheelchair, mesmerized, and sang to her passionately while holding her hand as she joined him in song.

Their sweet duet reportedly ended with Elvis tying his blue scarf around the woman and giving her a smooch on the cheek.

Don Luper, a warehouse manager who was shopping at the Walmart at the time, filmed the entire encounter on his cell phone.

“I had run to Walmart to pick up a few supplies on Memorial Day when I happened to capture this heartwarming moment; it made me happy to see such a sweet gesture,” Don told The Daily Mail“It seemed like the lady was taken back in time and was singing to the King himself — it had clearly made her day.”

Don said the pair’s duet reminded him of his own grandma, who adored Elvis, saying that “it was nice to see that the love still exists today in his fans.”
