It’s been 10 years since Napoleon Dynamite was released, but Jon Heder brought back the titular character for a very special occasion.

Heder reprised his role as the socially inept teenager in a video for 12-year-old Mary Elizabeth Paris, a leukemia patient who is a huge fan of the film. While today’s Dynamite seems to have sprouted a beard, Heder was still able to channel the breathy intonations of the classic movie dork to wish Paris luck, complete with his signature “butterfly lotus” hand wave made popular in the film.
