The 10th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race is only two episodes in, and already we’ve got more memes than RuPaul has blonde wigs. There’s Miss Vanjie’s backwards exit, Money X Change’s sponges, The Vixen’s note, THE ANKH. And now we’ve got Blair St. Clair getting meta by recreating one of this week’s most popular memes, the yodeling Walmart kid.
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the original video of a 10-year-old kid named Mason Ramsey yodeling Hank Williams’ “Lovesick Blues” in an Illinois Walmart.
After the video went viral, a lot of people looked at 22-year-old Blair and said, “Okay, your turn.” It was only a matter of time before this happened. In drag, Blair St. Clair gives me “runaway daughter of Chassie Tucker.” But anyone who has watched the show knows that out-of-drag Blair has the kind of baby face that’s begging for a white shirt and a bowtie. So Blair tweeted his version yesterday. Blair got brave enough to record in a real store, and NewNowNext says that’s his boyfriend playing the part of the old lady. It even has a cameo appearance by Miz Cracker.

I don’t know if Blair really needs yodeling lessons. My first thought was that he sounds like what original yodeling boy is going to sound like when he hits puberty. Actually, Blair out of drag looks so young, that’s probably what any bystanders in that store though. “Oh well, at least yodelboy got a taste of fame before his voice broke and grew an awkward 14 inches overnight.”
