Everyone loves giraffes. Everyone loves Marvin Gaye. What happens when you put them together? Well, this.

One creative fellow thought that it’d be humorous to put on a giraffe head puppet/mask and then lip sync to Gaye’s iconic “Let’s Get It On.” We didn’t thing that the bedroom banger could any better. We stand corrected.

Watch as the dude sways, along with his long giraffe neck, to the sensual rhythm of the song.

Nobody could resist the crooning of this beast.

Sebastian Mayer, the man behind the mask and the video, has other tutorials on his YouTube channel on how to make these animal masks—so start practicing your James Brown routine.
