Well folks, worry no more, because I’m happy to report the Yodel Kid is officially BACK.
Mason posted his first Instagram in almost a year this past week, posting a picture on a jet ski and reassuring fans that the 15-year old has big plans for 2022.
“Sorry I’ve been so quiet on social media lately. I’ve been living my life and took a step back from everything for a bit. I’m 15 now and a lot has changed since that day in Walmart. Hang tight because I’ve got big plans for 2022.”
So what has Mason been up to over the past year? Well he also revealed on TikTok that he’s now working at Subway (I wonder how Burger King feels about this, the kid from their commercial working for a fast food competitor).
Mason popped back up on TikTok when his 2019 song “Before I Knew It,” written by Corey Crowder, Jon Pardi and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard, started going viral with people discovering what an absolute heater it is.
And sure, making $5 footlongs is a far cry from performing at the CMAs and being crowd-surfed on an inflatable horse.
But good for the kid for not being too big for his britches to get an honest job, and not just trying to ride the wave of viral fame – although it looks like he might be plotting his comeback while he’s back there whipping up oven-roasted turkey subs.
Stay tuned and men, hide your ladies. The Yodel Kid is coming for us all once again.
