Waiting at the airport is awfully dull, but an NPR radio producer got the surprise of a lifetime when André 3000 showed up.

Antonia Cereijido spotted the Outkast member wandering around the terminal playing the flute, and after 40 minutes of trying to figure out if it was really him, she went and asked.

“I saw a man walking around my terminal playing a flute for 40 minutes and was losing my mind because I thought it was André 3000,” she tweeted on Friday (June 14). “And then it WAS André 3000!!!”

Cereijido says she has no regrets about the meeting but wishes she said something more meaningful.

“Of course I didn’t say anything good,” she said. “Now I’m like… I should’ve talked about how good his verse on Solo is. And how my mom once had a dream he taught our family to dance the hey ya dance and we had achieved the American Dream. W/E NO REGRET.”
