The man was spotted by Isobel Chillman, who snapped the photo while heading to Canada from Gatwick Airport in England to surprise her mom.

"He had no luggage, just a bunch of mistletoe," Chillman told BuzzFeed News.

"Some Love Actually shit is about to go down," Chillman wrote when she shared the photo on Twitter.

There's a man rushing to Gatwick north terminal with a bunch of mistletoe & nothing else. SOME LOVE ACTUALLY SHIT I…

The tweet has been retweeted thousands of times.

Unfortunately, the man ran off too quickly for Chillman to find out anything more.

"He then ran off at the other end, obviously in a rush to find someone," she said.

People were dying to know what happened next.

Quite a cliffhanger.

It kills me that i wont find out what happened next


And everyone's rooting for the man.

Every picture has a thousand words..good luck fella πŸŽ„x

go on my son

Can't cope ❀️❀️❀️❀️

Though of course, a few pessimists had alternative theories:

Alternative 2016 explanation: he's in a rush to poison someone.

But don't worry, the story has a happy ending!

The mysterious mistletoe man, Tim Brown, found Chillman's tweet, and said he was actually rushing to surprise his girlfriend.
