Brad Pitt made a surprise appearance during Frank Ocean’s set at FYF Fest in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Ocean, 29, began singing a cover of “Close to You” by Stevie Wonder when Pitt appeared off stage holding a phone to his ear. It appears as if Ocean is singing to the 53-year-old actor who looks like he’s listening sadly. Then Ocean transitions into a cover of Jackson 5’s “Never Can Say Goodbye.”
