Action superstar Jason Momoa keeps surprising us in the best possible ways. When he came on Ellen DeGeneres show’s Halloween episode, he dressed up as none other than the King of Rock and Roll, music legend Elvis Presley.

Dressed up in a fabulously flamboyant pink suit, Momoa delighted his and Ellen’s fans alike, who adored how much fun he was having by pretending to be Elvis.

In it, Momoa holds a cat and eats peaches, so you just know it’s worth your time. On Ellen’s show, Momoa talked more about the photo shoot and revealed that the cat in question was just a ‘random cat’ and not, in fact, his own catto, as many people had guessed.

On the show, Momoa confirmed that he is ‘obsessed with Elvis,’ adding ‘slightly,’ as a joke. Momoa said that this was the second time that he dressed as the King; the time before that was when he was 19 and visiting Los Angeles for the very first time.

Now, Halloween might be mostly about fun, games, and dressing up in the 21st century. However, the holiday, historically, has a deep connection to the supernatural. Bored Panda spoke with Halloween expert Lesley Bannatyne about how the holiday is strongly linked to honoring the dead, as well as ‘invoking the supernatural.’

“The presence of the supernatural at this time of year was strengthened when the Catholic Church placed its All Saints (November 1) and All Souls (November 2) at this time of year more than 1,000 years ago,” Bannatyne explained.

“Visiting the cemeteries and lighting candles for the dead, or building altars for them is very much part of Catholic culture to this day,” she went into detail. “You see it, for example, in the Mexican Days of the Dead as well as the marking of All Saints in many European countries. So there’s been a long tradition of invoking the supernatural and honoring the dead at this time of year.”
