If you think you’ve seen the most adorable, absolutely heartwarming thing already, you’re wrong. I’m not even sorry to say that. You’re just wrong. One little boy proves that he literally is the embodiment of all things cute and precious. His name is Alfie Shields, and he’s obsessed with performing–in this case, he’s a mini-Bette Midler.
Last week, his parents, Steven and Emma Shields, posted a video of Alfie performing am incredible rendition of “I Put a Spell on You” from “Hocus Pocus,” while Bette Midler’s performance as Winifred was on in the background. Of course, his outfit was on-point, with the robe and wig, not to mention his dance moves. Alfie was so passionate about that I basically felt like I was watching a majestic creature.
Not surprisingly, the video has gone viral, now with with over 938k views, 13k likes, 14k shares, and almost 5k comments. I’ve really never seen anything quite so perfect.
Because of the positive response the video received, Alfie’s dad posted an update afterward, explaining all Alfie wanted to know was if Bette Midler herself has seen the video:
“I have told Alfie how many views he has so far and he’s taking it in his stride, all he keeps asking is if Bette [Midler] has seen it yet!”
