Joey Fatone is best known for being a member of the boyband NSYNC. He also came in second place on the ABC reality show Dancing with the Stars n 2017.

Fatone visited Walt Disney World this past weekend and put on a show at EPCOT’s Eat to the Beat concert. He brought along some friends, including James Murray from Impractical Jokers. Yesterday, a very special Guest made an appearance, even surprising Joey Fatone himself — a squirrel with a cigarette!

It’s almost too bizarre to believe, but the incident was caught on camera, which you can see below or by clicking here. The TikTok user wrote:

According to other Disney fans, this is not the first time this squirrel has made an appearance. In fact, he even has a name — Stanely! One user commented on the video:

His name is Stanley and he loves to be up there when there’s a show going on!! This isn’t his first visit 😂

This certainly was a surprise, not only for fans watching the show, but for Joey Fatone himself!
