Hugh Jackman recently made “a million dreams” come true for some very lucky moviegoers. The “Greatest Showman” star surprised fans at a sing-along screening of his hit movie musical—and, as he later revealed, his efforts to be inconspicuous would never be enough for those who instantly recognized his voice.

In the video, Jackman can be seen singing along to “The Greatest Show,” the first song his character P.T. Barnum sings in the movie. “Wanted to experience the singalong too! So I snuck in the back of the theatre,” he tweeted. “Then I got busted.” The video, which was shared on his official Twitter and Instagram, has been viewed more than half a million times and has left many people wishing that they had been in attendance.

While the movie originally opened to mixed reviews, according to Entertainment Weekly, the popular soundtrack eventually helped attract a loyal following. Just weeks after the film premiered in December, select theaters announced they would be doing sing-along showings of the musical. The soundtrack from songwriting duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul later went platinum, which Jackman celebrated on social media.

Jackman isn’t the first “Greatest Showman” actor to crash a sing-along screening of the film. In January, Zendaya, Keala Settle and other cast members attended a showing at AMC Theatres. The “This Is Me” singer posted a photo of the crew together, tweeting, “Reunited……and, goddammit, it feels so good.”

The movie was released on DVD last week.
