Five-Year-Old Does Killer Imitation of Bette Midler. Thoughts?

I’ll give him this: Alfie Shields of Stockport, England–and yes, he’s just 5–does a killer impression Bette Midler as Winifred in the movie Hocus Pocus. The original video (posted by his father) has been viewed 2.7 million times and garnered more than 16,000 comments. Even Bette herself thinks he’s brilliant.

Thoughts? Cool? Creepy? Weird? A star is born?
