We love it when artists finish up a tour together by pranking each other onstage. Such stunts are always good for a laugh, but we may have a new favorite. Jon Pardi recently wrapped up a gig opening for Dierks Bentley, and joined Dierks onstage in Denver in a full Elvis Presley getup.

That’s right, Jon turned up in a white, fringed jumpsuit, aviator sunglasses and slicked-back hair and showed off some epic hip-swiveling moves. Dierks, clad in his usual end-of-show airline pilot’s uniform (for his “Drunk On A Plane” finale), seems to be getting quite a kick out of it in this tweet posted by Jon.

It seems Dierks took their time on tour together a bit more seriously, gifting Jon with a Martin acoustic guitar. Jokester Jon immediately named his new instrument “Dierks.”
