Andy Lau is, needless to say, a global superstar.

The 60-year-old is best known for his seat on the Cantopop throne, and as one of the "Four Heavenly Kings" of Hong Kong.

Which is why the idea of Lau ever appearing in a Jack Neo film might seem surprising— even jarring.

A potential film collaboration?

However, this was a possibility teased by Neo in an Instagram post on June 18, where he uploaded a photo of himself with Lau.

The photo was captioned:

"There was one year where I went to Hong Kong to discuss a collaboration with him. But I actually forgot that that this photo was taken."

In response, some users commented that it would be extremely cool if Lau acted as a commander in Neo's most recent series, "Ah Girls Go Army" (AGGA).

Many also expressed their excitement for a collaboration.

The post has since garnered over 9,800 likes, a significantly higher number than usual.
