Do you think you know Shrek well enough to recite it word for word? Well, now you have competition.

Maria Karras, from Indiana, was on a road trip with her family when her brother Theo (or TJ) started performing a one-man show of Shrek, complete with spot-on impressions of Eddie Murphy as Donkey.

Posting on Twitter, Maria said: “Stuck in the car for two hours with this.”

The video of TJ, a student aspiring to perform musical theatre, now has more than three million views.

Maria, a psychology graduate, said: “He did make other quotes and references to different scenes before and after what I was able to record in the video.

“We only posted it to show my cousins because it was too long to send to our cousin chat on Snapchat.”

Maria added: “My entire family is enjoying the process of watching it grow. Especially because it’s received a lot more positive feedback than negative feedback.”
