Did you know that the godmother of soul herself, the incomparable Patti LaBelle, has her own line of sweet potato pies? Did you know that they’re sold at Walmart? And did you realize that if you take a single bite of Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pie, you will magically transform into the diva herself, belting out high notes and trilling like an angel from gospel heaven?
At least that’s what appears to happen in the video above, in which YouTuber James Wright Chanel (who might be the real life embodiment of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Titus Andromedon) does his best Patti LaBelle impression in between bites of the star’s signature sweet potato pie. And yes, it’s convincing.
In case you were wondering, Patti herself has seen the video, and she’s loving it. The proof is in the tweet:
Give this man a job on your next tour, Patti!
