Willie Nelson celebrated his 82nd birthday yesterday (April 29). As a result, the country singer and marijuana enthusiast received a comical tribute by a fifth grade student last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Standing in back of a cardboard cutout dressed as Nelson complete with braids and an acoustic guitar, a young boy named Luke walked on the stage with pink cue-cards.

“Howdy, everybody. I’m Willie Nelson and today is my 82nd birthday,” Luke said while reading his cue-cards as if he was giving a class presentation.

“I’m a country music legend and an outlaw,” he continued. “I spent half my life making music with my friends. And the other half working in my garden where I grow special magical plants.”

To a room of laughter, Luke added that it was time for him to leave as he had a few things left to do to celebrate his 82nd birthday.
