This little girl thought a random man was Santa and he totally played along

At some point, most of us have been mistaken for someone else. But most of the time, the person we’re been mistaken for isn’t one of the most famous and beloved characters in the entire world. That’s exactly what happened to one man, when a little girl mistook him for Santa Claus!

Roger Larck was shopping at a West Virginia Walmart when a little girl named Sophie approached him, as any kid would when they think they spot Santa walking around. Rather than correct her, Roger decided to give the kid the thrill of her young life and pretend to be Old Saint Nick. Sophie then proceeded to tell Roger/Santa about the cookies she was planning on leaving him and details about her Christmas tree, according WSBTV. Sophie’s dad posted the adorable interaction to Facebook, and pretty soon the video racked up over 300,000 views.

Although the audio is a bit faint, it’s obvious that Roger took his job very seriously. He visits with the little girl, asks about her Christmas list, and assures her that he’s been told she’s been very good this year. And although the little girl is nervous (who wouldn’t be!), we can only imagine how excited she’ll be to tell all her friends that she casually hung out with Santa himself!
