Sure, Elton John and Kiki Dee‘s “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” is traditionally performed as a duet, but costume designer and make-up artist Darrell Thorne took social distancing to the next level when he made the collaboration into a one-man show.
He shared a viral video on Instagram, in which he’s seen with half of his face and body dressed as John and the other half as Dee, separated by a mirror down’ the center of his face, creating an illusion of two full individuals. He sings the entire song, shaking his head side-to-side to portray each singer.
“Me, myself, and aye,” he captioned the impressive clip. “Just over here tryin’ to be a power couple all by myself. Don’t go breakin’ my heart!”
In fact, the video won the heart of the icon himself, who shared the video to his Instagram Story on Monday (Nov. 2) with a “Fabulous” sticker as a stamp of approval.
