The wholesome video Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong made for a fan 23 years ago has resurfaced thanks to the internet.

According to Reddit user u/jmsmnn, when his wife was 15, she was a fan of the band and sent letters and art to Armstrong often. The frontman attempted to call her to say thank you, but the girl thought it was a prank and hung up on him. Armstrong’s wife even tried calling her, but the teen hung up on her too.

Undeterred, the vocalist later sent the girl a package that contained a video of him thanking her for being a fan.
