The kid who went viral for yodelling in Walmart just performed at Coachella. After conquering his local Walmart, the timeline, and most recently, on Ellen earlier this week, 11-year-old Mason Ramsey hit the desert for the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, where he performed the exact same song that propelled him to meme greatness; albeit in the same getup he wore in the original video.
A post on his official Instagram account already confirmed that Ramsey was slotted to perform with up-and-coming DJ Whethan (who Twitter users have likened to Ramsey) at 2:45pm in the Sahara Tent on Friday, April 13.

TMZ reports that Post Malone is also interested in having the beloved Walmart yodel boy join him onstage at the festival on Saturday. However, thanks to Ellen DeGeneres, he’s already booked at the Grand Ole Opry. Rumours are circulating that Malone might have Ramsey locked down for weekend 2.
So now that his big Coachella debut is finally over (or so it seems) videos have begung circulating the web, showing Mason Ramsey in action. You can watch the TMZ video above, as well as a small roundup of our favorites from around the web below.
