Billy Crystal has us in our feels!

The veteran actor gave us all a surprise on his 75th birthday by re-creating his iconic When Harry Met Sally pose.

Taking to Twitter, Crystal posted a side-by-side snapshot paying homage to the stance taken from the late 80's rom-com which he starred in alongside fellow actor, Meg Ryan.

In the new photo, he was donning an iconic 'fit from the movie - an oversized knitted sweater, dark blue washed-out jeans as well as white trainers.

Though the original was taken over three decades ago, fans couldn't help but gush over the wave of nostalgia that hit them upon seeing the post.

The first was none other than the official Twitter account for the dictionary publisher, Merriam-Webster, who had a very fitting response.

"Icon | Noun | A person or thing widely admired, especially for having great influence or significance in a particular sweater."

Richard Lewis also responded to the tweet, describing the 75-year-old as a "blessed artist."

"I’m proud to have started our comedic journey together. I started reading your accomplishments 17 weeks ago and I’m just about halfway done. Far and away your greatest success is your wondrous family. Love from the Lewises," he added.

Ben Stiller added: "Lots of love and respect."

"You didn’t have to go this hard," commented another user.

And the comments didn't stop there, with hundreds more praising Crystal for his post.

Since it was posted yesterday (March 14), it has been viewed 7.4 million times and received over 125,000 likes.

The news comes shortly after it was revealed that When Harry Met Sally was among the 25 films selected as 2022's entries into the National Film Registry.
As per PEOPLE, at the time of the incredible announcement, the actor described every shot in the movie as "just right."

"I just felt so plugged into the process of making the movie," he said. "Not that anything is ever easy, but it was just such a joy to see it come to life.

"The movie is beautiful and simple and appropriate, and every shot is just right," the actor continued, when asked what makes When Harry Met Sally stand out over 30 years later. "The timing, which is in the hands of Rob, who is, for this movie, a modern-day Billy Wilder... and it's New York, it's the fall, it's the music."
When Harry Met Sally joins other iconic films that made the cut including the likes of Iron Man (2008), The Little Mermaid (1989) and Cyrano de Bergerac (1950).
