The writer and star of the upcoming gay romantic comedy Bros, Billy Eichner, made his high school dream come true when he hosted a screening of his film in New York City hosted by none other than Mariah Carey. Eichner celebrated the occasion on Twitter, writing in all caps “I WILL NEVER RECOVER!!!!!” The day after the event.

Eichner and Carey posed for photos on the red carpet, with Carey even pinching the Bros star’s butt for one of the shots. Eichner added in another excited tweet, “I LITERALLY HAD MY FIRST KISS WHILE LISTENING TO THE @MariahCarey EMOTIONS ALBUM IN JUNIOR HIGH AND NOW THIS IS HAPPENING!?”

This career highlight happened for Eichner as he attempts to build up hype for the film, which will premiere in theaters on September 30. Here is a new trailer for the film shared by Eichner.

Bros is written by and starring Eichner, and directed by iconic comedy director Nicholas Stoller of Forgetting Sarah Marshall fame.
