Watch SNL’s Jason Sudeikis fanboy over Ellen

Forget kittens and babies: this is the cutest thing you’ll see on the internet all day.

Turns out, Saturday Night Live’s Jason Sudaikis grew up as quite the little Ellen DeGeneres fanboy. This obsession was unknown by Ellen until her producers briefed her prior to his appearance on her show today. (Now that’s a pre-interview I would’ve liked to be a fly on the wall for.)

Watch Sudaikis genuinely (adorably) stammer his way through a five-minute detailing of his infatuation with DeGeneres, including his massive crush on her, how he obtained a life-size poster of her from a tv station in Wichita, and how he’s kept her autograph at his side for his entire adult life. (Cringing as they go into break is the icing on the cake.)
