For many fans, Game of Thrones Season 5 was 10 hours of unbridled horror, and few characters exemplify that horror better than Ramsay Bolton, the sadistic bastard best known for doing things like cutting off Theon Greyjoy’s penis and flaying people alive just for fun. Not a guy you’d want to be friends with.

Or is he? YouTube editor M&M put together two minutes of footage — set to Elton John’s “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” — that might convince people who haven’t seen the show that Ramsay’s actually a real sweetie. He saves lives, he accepts surrenders, he pours wine for his lady friends, and he even takes some time to give his dear friend Theon a hot bath. How thoughtful.

Then again…those crazy eyes still do kinda give him away, don’t they?
