A Hawaiian Airlines ramp agent left a huge impression on journalist and Oprah Winfrey’s best friend, Gayle King.

She was on a plane leaving Maui when she saw resident Harley Tripp pose and perform for passengers on her flight.

King filmed it on her phone, posted it on her Instagram page, and it already has more than 100,000 views.

She captioned the clip, “LOVE this guy!””I perform for fliers, passengers, for my coworkers, anybody that I’m with I usually act like my crazy self,” Tripp said.  “My thing is I feel like I was put on Earth to bring a smile and just cheer up everybody you know. All of that ono goodness is what we call it.”

In addition to working for Hawaiian Airlines, Tripp is also a disc jockey for KPOA radio on Maui.

He says he reached out to King, but has not heard back from her yet.
