If you think you saw Adam Lambert for a brief scene in Bohemian Rhapsody, you were right.
The acclaimed film is slated for home release on February 12, 2019 but is already available for pre-order here.
The former American Idol runner-up in the show's eighth season has firmly established himself as an accomplished solo artist in his own right, landing him a collaboration performing with the remaining members of the rock group, Queen, now known as Queen + Adam Lambert.
Lambert confirmed he was the truck driver from the Queen biopic who shared a fleeting moment with Freddie Mercury, who was played by Golden Globe winner Rami Malek.
The singer teased in a tweet on Saturday:
"Who is he!?"
Who is he!? 😏😂 #BohemianRhapsodyMovie is available for digital download on 1/22! https://t.co/RXVOvhv2qu— ADAM LAMBERT (@ADAM LAMBERT)1547208209.0
Access Online refreshed audiences' memory of the singer's cameo halfway through the film.
In the scene, Freddie Mercury (Malek) is at a rest stop and talking to his fiancée Mary Austin on the phone. Enter: rugged truck driver (Lambert), with whom Mercury locks eyes before disappearing into the bathroom.
The film implied that the pivotal moment signified Mercury's first gay experience after coming to America.
Lambert fans campaigned for him to win an award for his seductive portrayal of a blue collar worker.

Lambert first performed with Queen band members, Brian May and Roger Taylor, during American Idol in 2009 and officially joined the group as the new frontman in 2012.
According to Digital Spy, May said that Mercury, who died on November 24, 1991, would approve of the new lead singer bringing the band into the future.
"Judging by my incoming mail, this decision will make a lot of people very happy. It's a worthy challenge for us, and I'm sure Adam would meet with Freddie's approval!"
"And what better place to revisit, and walk those emotional paths than Knebworth? It will be a rush."
Lambert said he hoped to honor Mercury's legacy prior to Queen + Adam Lambert's July 2012 performance at the Knebworth Festival in England, which was the final venue where Mercury performed his final act with Queen in 1986.
"I'm completely in awe of the Queen phenomenon. The thought of sharing the stage for a full set is so beautifully surreal. I'm honored to be able to pay my respects to Freddie's memory."
"He's a personal hero of mine and I am deeply grateful for the chance to sing such powerful music for fans of this legendary band."
With his current successes, the humble singer must wonder if this is the real life or just fantasy.
But to us, he is a champion.
