This story is both wholesome, and hilarious.

A video recorded by Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and sent to a fan back in 1996 has surfaced on the internet - and the story about it is genuinely brilliant. 

The story was shared by Reddit user u/jmsmnn, about his wife who was 15 years old back in 1996, and a very very big fan of Green Day. 

"In 1996 Billie Joe Armstrong took time to call my wife when she was 15. She would send him letters often. One day he called her house to thank her," he shared. "Being a young girl from a small town, she couldn’t believe it was really him so she assumed it was a prank call and hung up on him. His wife immediately called back to try to convince her it was real. She hung up on her too. A week or so later a package showed up with a video in it. In the video he held up the letters she had sent him and thanked her for them."

The video is below, and it features Billie Joe explaining that it's real, showing off the Valentine's Day card she'd sent, and showing off the old Green Day tour poster he was sending along with it. He didn't just give up after being hung up on TWICE. You love to see it.
