Thai netizens are gushing over a photo of British pop icon Harry Styles buying coconut juice in Bangkok‘s Siam area. A Thai netizen under the username pdulads posted the photo on Twitter yesterday with the caption…

“Can’t believe it! I took a walk in this market after lunch and spotted Harry buying coconut juice.”

The tweet already has 21,000 retweets and 517 quote tweets. Quote-tweet captions include, “HE’S IN THAILAND ALREADY OMG,” “coconut water yuppp that’s my man,” and “See you on the 11th!” in reference to Harry’s concert coming up in Bangkok on Saturday.

Styles has been in the spotlight for a few reasons this week.

A video also posted on Twitter yesterday shows Styles explaining to an audience at one of his concerts why he posted and deleted a photo on his Instagram story. The photo is a selfie that appears to have been taken in a gym. Styles is pictured wearing a One Direction T-shirt. In the video, fans are heard laughing uproariously after Harry reveals that he had posted the photo by accident.

The 29 year old pop sensation is best known for hits such as “Sign of the Times,” “Fine Line,” and “As It Was.” Styles gained attention in 2010 on The X Factor before joining the boy band One Direction later that year, becoming a heartthrob to teenage girls across the globe.

Earlier this week, it was reported that thousands of Styles fans had been stranded at a stadium in Aukland, New Zealand. A video showed the swarm of fans lining up and waiting for busses on both sides of the road. One fan told New Zealand media that she and her friends arrived at their accommodation at 1am, almost three hours after the gig had finished. Aukland Transport Travel Alerts said the wait times for busses for concert-goers to the city centre were estimated at 90 minutes.
