NFL fans have gone wild over a viral video of U.S. actor Jeff Goldblum being shown on the Super Bowl‘s jumbotron, as many compared his reaction to one of an average fan.

Goldblum, who has starred in some of the highest-grossing films of all time such as Jurassic Park and Independence Day, was shown on Allegiant Stadium’s big screen in the first half of Sunday’s game in Las Vegas, with the San Francisco 49ers up, 3-0.

He had to put his thick, black glasses on to realize that he was being shown on all TV cameras in America, before getting to his feet and wrapping up his arms around his shoulders in disbelief.

‘Jeff Goldblum looks like a fan who’s on the big screen for the first time in his life,’ a fan tweeted as the caption to footage of the 71-year-old Pennsylvanian.

Goldblum even showed off some of his dance moves to the delight of the crowd at the stadium before cameras switched onto someone else. It was a stark contrast to his initial, lifeless reaction of being shown on the jumbotron.
