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.

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.
